The Philippines provides a wide choice of impressive tourist attractions. Tourists are charmed by the typical beaches, and white sand beaches and bountiful sunlight form entertainment activities during the day. However, almost all principal cities feature colonial architecture, and inland areas on some islands are known for diverse cultures where you meet isolated mountain tribes.
The Philippines has seen rapid changes in the political rule in the last few centuries. It is recorded in history that Muslims established themselves on the Sulu islands in the late fourteenth century. In the following century, the Islam system grew and formed an empire that ruled most of the modern Philippines. Manila, which was once called "Maynilad," was ruled by the sultan of Borneo and was named Rajah Sulayman. The success of this port where the Pasig River and Manila Bay meet attracted Spanish explorers, and in 1521, Ferdinand Magellan landed on these islands and insisted the Spanish crown's rights. However, he was immediately discovered by his enemies and a local tribe chief had him executed.
The climate of the Philippines is divided into three seasons. The cool season is noticeable in the last two months of the year when the average temperature goes down to 25 degrees. During this period, families get together to celebrate Christmas, and it is the highest season for the tourist industry as domestic buses and flights are fully booked. During this time numerous international travelers visit the Philippines, attracted by its fresh weather.
