How would you describe Philippines?

A foreign friend ask me whats the best is the best thing about our country Philippines. I told him the culture, the beaches, the food, the people. Despite the bad travel advisories for the Philippines during the late 2005 and early last year.. how could I convinced my friends to go here with us?

Tell him this, If you have'nt been to the Philippines' you have missed the world.Ha ha ha ha ha! Maybe, others see the meaning of beauty differently, some would say their country is beatiful in terms of development. But the beauty of the Philippines is within its people, our warm relationship with foreigners due to our mentality that they are richer than us, unknowingly, we are richer than them. In their country, they are not treated how we treat them, and their feeling become special and thats how we enticed them, thas is our being hospitable. Our beaches and other tourist spot is only second, they have them too. Hope you convinced your friend out here. Good luck.

first thing i could tell them that every country has its own problems tv just makes it worst and makes everything blown up look at 9/11 we have some of the best beaches here in the world people here understands at least basic english so it wont really be hard for them to stay here value for money everything here is cheap for foreigners food here is also great filiinos have the passion for cooking its the love to eat that makes our food taste amazing for those who love shopping we have everthing to cater to anyones need if they are the social type we have greenbelt 3 shangrila and i think mall of asia could be included since everything is there and i think its the largest in asia for those frugal shoppers we could bring them to 168 mall

Me too, my chinese officemate was asking me what's good in the Philippines. I asked him what he wants to do. I told him that if he wants to go diving, we have Anilao. If he wants to swim and see nice beaches, we have Boracay & Palawan. If he wants to go surfing, we have Cagayan de Oro. If he want to do shopping, we have the best value for his money. If he wants to have nice food... we have Dampa in Paranaque for the best seafood or the one in Tagaytay for organic foods. But the best part of it is, I told him the people are very hospitable and warm. People can speak in English & locals are very helpful. Although safety is one big question, I told him that even US was attacked by terrorists. I hope more tourists come to our country because I know its one of the best if not the best!

Best to tell your friend that the Philippines is the place to visit if he or she wants to make a difference in life... The pride of us, Filipinos: Hospitality.
