You're going to love your holiday to Philippines
With Catholicism the major religion and the landscape filled with crumbling stone churches and old colonial villas, the Philippines is unlike any of its neighbours. Vibrant festivals celebrating Saints dot the calendar, and if you can line your Philippines holiday up with one of these, you're in for some fun. Oh, and the more than 7,000 islands, clear waters and white-sand beaches aren't half bad either!
