The Philippines has so many tourist attractions that are full of abundance and also most of the attractions in the Philippines are impressive, breathtaking, splendid, and worth visiting. This country is also rich in natural resources and man-made landmarks. Exciting, right?
The Values of the Filipinos are really exceptional. Filipinos are well-known for providing warm hospitality for instance, when someone visited their house. By providing the visitors’ needs and accommodating them in a nice way and more. Filipinos are also family-oriented, specifically on occasions, families are complete to have their family bondings, this is also traditionally. Moreover, being respectful by saying ‘’po’’ and ‘’opo’’ as a sign of respect to the elderly, and grabbing the hands of an older person/relatives to place on the forehead as a sign of respect / also known as ‘’to bless’’ and having a heart and hand for other people in need. I can really say that Filipinos have a big heart.
Being resilient is also a good trait of the Filipinos. As a local, I am aware of how strong we are despite everything. Just putting a smile on our faces, being optimistic and praying, and keep on going for every challenge that may occur. Filipinos also practice ‘’Bayanihan’’ or being united as one. I can say this when the Taal volcano erupted last 2020, many of the Filipinos donated for fellow Filipinos, any amount will do, small and big help really matters because the heart of the Filipino is big, warm, and amazing. Let’s go to being hard working. Many Filipinos are working abroad and are OFWs to provide for their families, I can say that Filipinos are really motivated, dedicated, and persistent in their dreams, work, goals, and aspirations.
The Culture in the Philippines composes of different aspects. Filipinos are also known for being religious and following important matters. Let’s talk about the Festivities, Filipinos celebrates different festivities in a different part of the country. Every city has its own festivals on a specific date. Filipinos love celebrating festivals, reuniting with friends, colleagues and cooking a ton of foods and meals. For instance, in Dasmarinas Cavite, the festival there is Butterfly Festival, which is on every November 26. The streets and roads are full of majestic butterfly costumes, full of arts, sounds, energy, parades, and creativities, (this was the way to celebrate before the pandemic).
