It cannot be argued that Philippines, my homeland, is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. I can say that it is in the top 10 countries most visited by tourists each year. Although you have heard some bad experiences here, do still want to come back (for those who visited already)? Do you have plans to visit here (for first timers)? Why or why not?

In my country , israel , we have many philippine workers and most of them take care of the old people who can't be alone too much. That job require a good heart and caring for the patient. I didn't see the philippines but there was a season of the tv program called "hisardut" (that is hebrew for survival) and it was with a bunch of people that do tasks and missions on islands and every episodes , one of them is chosen to return home. The view was very beautiful. Maybe I will save money for a trip to the philippines. Until then I will watch pictures.

It is indeed amazing that a lot of tourists would always like to come back to the Philippines, if ever they have visited it. Not only are there lots of nice places but the foods are delicious and different so they say. The people are hospitable and has a ready smile on their lips. They can speak English, so the tourists will be able to communicate well with them. And some say, the goods specially the clothes , are cheaper and beautiful in the Philippines. But in your case, since it is your homeland, i think your relatives are what makes you want to come back to the Philippines.

Philippines is a very beautiful country. It is true, that " it is more fun in the PHILIPPINES?" it just don't have beautiful beaches like Boracay, it also have sceneries like mountains, rivers, volcanoes and under the sea that are really captivating and worth it. All counties have its negative issues. Even America, Singapore, Canada, Hongkong and so on.But what is good about Philippines are its people. Their hospitality and warm welcome and of course, the place itself. Filipinos can do understand english even though some may not speak fluently. This is the one thing why foreigners prefer to visit this country.
