Abstract

Philippines is an island country located in the southeast of Asia. In terms of settlement geography, it has been under political and cultural domination of India, China, Spain and the USA, respectively. Due to observed tropical climate, the country's temperature ranges in between 25 degrees C and 32 degrees C throughout year, which is quite appropriate for tourism activities. Summer period ( suitable time for swimming), known as Tag-init or Tag-araw, starts in October and come to end in April. This is also the timeframe when tourist visits reach the peak.
