Thursday Thirteen - WOW Philippines

The Philippines constitutes an archipelago of 7,107 islands, but is divided into three large island groups, Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. The country provides a high environment of natural resources in areas such as agriculture, nature, and minerals. The Philippines has a coastline twice the length of that of the United States, where in the Philippines can claim to be Asia's Beach Capital. The diversity of our culture and heritage makes one's visit to the Philippines more than the usual. Here are my Thursday 13 list of why you should experience the 7,107 islands.

I must say, one thing EntreCard has done for me is that it's exposed me to a country I'd known nothing about before, despite having a Pinay friend in elementary school. I'd love to see the Philippines one day.
