8 Must-See Off-the-Beaten Path in Philippines

Here is my list of 8 Must-See Destinations in the Philippines which are not normally known, seen or experienced by some tourists.  As there is so much to see and explore, this list represents only what I think is the best of ‘off-the-beaten’ path in the Philippines.


8. Bonsai Island, Quezon – impressively flat rock that appears only during low-tide.
