Is one week enough time to take in the Philippines? Well, I think most of us would certainly say that in one week you can only scratch the surface of what the Philippines has to offer. A couple of young guys, though, spend one week in the Philippines and produced the video below to share their experience. I would say, based on the video, that these guys pack a lot into a week, and it looks like they had a great time!
One way that you can tell that they missed out on a lot, though, was when they were planning their trip they mentioned that they would be starting out “at Manila, in the South”. Well, Manila is not in the south!
There is a lot to see south of Manila, and in fact, Manila is really part of the north of the country. If you travel the Visayas and Mindanao there are so many subcultures that you can explore and enjoy! It seems that every region or even every locale in the Philippines has a bit different culture than the last one you visited! Even a different language as you travel from town to town!
I really enjoyed this video, especially the parts where children were featured. The children of the Philippines are really cute and a lot of fun. They are generally quite shy, but if you work at it, you can usually get them to come out of their shell and be friendly and engaging!
Hope you enjoyed the video as much as I did!
