Know Where to Go in the Philippines to Have the Ultimate Experience as a Solo Traveler

Traveling alone can be an incredible journey of discovery about yourself, how you handle yourself in certain situations and to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Traveling with people is obviously awesome, but having someone to always depend on and talk to, will stop you from maybe meeting as many people as you would alone or not taking charge of a situation.
The Philippines is mostly a safe place to travel alone, but of course you have to take the usual cautions. Filipinos are super welcoming hosts and they’ll always be happy to chat and help you out if you need. To know the best places to go as a solo traveler, take a look below.
