If you have a foreigner friend asking you what to see in the Philippines for a few weeks? What do you tell them? The Philippines is an archipelago located in Southeast Asia. Unlike its popular neighboring countries that are easier to reach, you have to actually plan a trip to go here. It is a destination. It can’t be reached by land from the Asian mainland like most of Southeast Asia. It is special that way in my opinion because it makes it less touristy or super crowded. It was my boyfriend’s first visit in the country and I wanted to make it memorable. We had a time frame of 3 weeks. It would be impossible to see everything in that short time. With 7,641 islands, I had a tough time of choosing a few for him to see. It also does not help that there are not a lot of inter island flights at the moment so I have to make this Philippines 3 weeks itinerary convenient as much as possible.
