Journey Through the Philippines is the ultimate Philippines travel pictorial for exploring Asia's second largest archipelago, home to some of the world's most beautiful natural landscapes.

Often overlooked by travelers in Southeast Asia, the Philippines is one of the region's most exciting destinations. Through more than 250 stunning photographs, readers are taken across the breadth of the archipelago, from the chocolate hills of Bohol to the country's northernmost province of Batanes. The geographical diversity of the country is astounding—the islands are home to spectacular white-sand beaches, bubbling volcanoes, 2000-year-old rice terraces and some of the best surfing and diving in the world.

This Philippines travel pictorial captures the islands' stunningly varied natural landscapes and provides an insight into the lives of the Filipino people, their centuries-old traditions, exuberant religious fiestas and warm hospitality.

She has written dozens of guidebooks for Rough Guides, including the Rough Guide to the Philippines and the Rough Guide to Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei, and regularly writes for magazines and nationals on a number of destinations worldwide.
