Out of 57 countries that Chantelle Flores, international photographer and travel journalist, has ventured to, the Philippines ranks as her number one - And rightfully so.
Not only is it more affordable than its island counterparts of Bali, Mauritius and even some parts of the overcrowded Thailand, it is a country that boasts the world’s most instagrammable locations and one of the world’s largest island groups.
Nothing defines the Philippines more than its postcard perfect white powdery beaches, turquoise waters and stunning coral reefs. Heaven on earth could in fact be on one of these incredible islands.
With more than 7641 islands, each with unique personalities and offerings, it’s the perfect destination to kick back and relax amidst nature's most serene landscapes.
