Eastern Visayas:  jewel of the Orient

Far from being a mere cluster of islands on the southeastern corner of Asia, the Philippines is an archipelago blessed with an endless array of landscapes.  It brims with beaches, forests, mountains, plains, cliffs, caves, marshes, lakes and rivers, all of it set amidst a stunning backdrop of clear blue skies and an emerald sea.

It is home to a multi-ethnic people -- a varied blend of races, beliefs and customs borne from centuries of foreign influence.  We are a mixture of Malay, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, American, Arab and much more.  Despite this diverse background, we have managed to produce an identity of our own.  We call ourselves "Filipinos".

We are a fun-loving and gentle people.  Our traditions are deeply-rooted, and it shows in the way we do things.  This is, perhaps, most easily seen in the hundreds of events that fill our annual cultural calendar.

We invite you to join us in this year-round celebration of the Filipino way of life.  During your stay in the Philippines, you will discover that few days go by without a joyous gathering of some sort, happening somewhere in this archipelago.

We do have another name for our country -- we call it the Fiesta Islands!
