The Philippines is a country of islands with over 7146 islands combined. The coastline is probably the longest on record with white Sandy beaches. Hills are formed from active volcanoes such as the Mayon volcano which forms a perfect cone and taal volcanoes, with Mayon being the most active in the state. Long rivers run through green lush landscapes that stretch for miles ahead before joining the ocean. Earthquakes are more regular than volcanic explosions in the Philippines, with over 20 quakes being reported every day, although most of them are weak and insignificant to human lives.
Due to the geologic structure as well as the constant earthquakes and volcanic activities, the Philippines has a significant mineral deposit. Some valuable minerals include gold, palladium, chrome, nickel as well as zinc. One example of coral deposits made by rain caused erosion is the chocolate hills found in Bohol. All these biological reserves have not boosted the country’s financial development because they largely remain unused. There are eight important categories of forests in the Philippines comprising pine, molave, montane, and mangroves. These forests contain a wide assortment of plants and trees together with a wide range of animal species.
The country’s beauty is based more on nature than on infrastructure. With the large number of islands that make up the country, beautiful white sandy beaches line up the coastlines with coconut and banana trees, adding to the beautiful scenery. The majority of these islands do not have an expensive resort, so there is an opportunity to interact with the local people as well as bond with nature. There is an underground river that acts as a tourist spot and divers get to interact with rich underwater biodiversity. Surfers enjoy riding large waves in the Pacific while beach lovers walk on the clean sand.
Out of the new seven wonders of nature, one — the Puerto Princesa underground river, is found in the Philippines. It shows an underground river cave network with remarkable limestone arrangements jutting out around it. The Philippines transport system is colorful, jeepneys are present all around cities in the state. A jeepney is a cross between a jeep and a bus. It is characterized by its cramped space as well as its local art—also called kitsch, decorations.
