A visual journey exploring one of Southeast Asia's most beautiful destinations.

Through more than 250 stunning photographs, readers are taken across the length and breadth of this culturally and geographically diverse archipelago—from the chocolate hills of Bohol to the country's northernmost province of Batanes. Often overlooked by travelers to Southeast Asia, 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 book captures the islands' stunningly varied natural landscapes, and provides an insight into the lives of the Filipino people—from centuries-old traditions and religious festivals to exquisite craftsmanship and warm hospitality.

About the Author:
Kiki Deere first visited the Philippines in 2003 and has returned time and time again to explore more of this incredibly diverse archipelago. She has traveled extensively throughout the country--among her favorite spots are the mystical Cordilleras with their ancient rice terraces that weave around the mountainside, and the awe-inspiring limestone formations that rise dramatically from the crystal-clear waters of Palawan.

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