The Philippines has a very diverse culture. The people are the most loving, friendly, caring, respectful, family oriented, faithful, conservative, etc. Not racist at all. Uses respectful words (words used for the elders or anyone who is older than them even just for a year) "PO and OPO" which literally means YES but in a respectful way. They use a gesture for greeting the elders, "Mano" where they would place the elders' hand unto their forehead as a sign of respect. The children are not allowed to shout and talk back to their parents or elders. People who are older than them are to called Uncle/Aunty/Ate(Big sister)/Kuya(Big brother) even if they are not related, just to show respect. Children are often disciplined and rarely spoiled. Filipinos are very family-oriented, centers for the old are dead businesses. The Philippines is a mixture of almost everything. Some Filipinos have Chinese(Tsinoy, Tsinita), Spanish(Tisoy, Tisay), and American blood, usual Filipinos ...more

Filipinos are just normal people like any other Asians.

I have lived in South Korea and traveled to many other places in Asia including Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, etc. However, I think it truly is the people and natural scenery that set the Philippines apart from the rest. Never in my world travels have I come across people as friendly and hospitable as the Filipinos. I love how easy it is for them to smile and laugh. I love how family oriented they R.I love how they wouldn't think twice of inviting you to eat and drink with their family and friends. I was once on an island off of Bantayan and a group of cousins invited me to play volleyball with them. Then one of their fathers told me to come over and enjoy seafood lunch and beer with the entire family. Before I left, he pointed his finger over my heart and looked at me in the eyes and said, "You are a good man." That will forever be a moment that will remind me of the beautiful people of the Philippines and the inspiring scenery, from the mountains to volcanic lakes to pristine ...more

Why I choose Philippines, because there is no word can explain how the Philippines grow into a much stronger and better country than it was before, it is not that I'm bias because I'm a Filipino. The Philippines excel tremendously, it the home of exceptional talent, best mangoes, best beaches, and it is the only Asian country that speak, spoke English language fluently. There is no place like it the world. I know that the Philippines will excel more in the future.

Philippines choirs are really good one of the best choir is The Philippine Madrigal Singers or also known as the MADZ. They already proven their worth many times over in performing in world stage, in fact they are one of the most awarded choirs in the world and Asia and won many international competition, and their list of impressive wins still growing. With The Philippine Madrigal Singers growing list of achievements, the MADZ is considered to be one of the best choirs if not the best in the whole world.

I love the the hospitality and the togetherness of people. It doesn't matter where one is in the world and if filipinos bump into each other, the first thing that comes to mind is to ask if they are a filipino, and if they are, they would talk like they've known each other forever. The best about filipinos is when a stranger turns up at their doorstep, they won't ask who you are, they let you in and offer you a drink and ask if you already have eaten then they'll start asking that's part of the filipino culture. Compassionate people as well.

1. We, Filipinos, are very hospitable to foreigners.
2. When we made a mistake, we always tend to fix it right away.
3. We love to cook delicious foods like sinigang, sisg, adobo, bicol express and pansit.
4. Overseas Filipino Workers are the most hardworking and most caring.
5. Talented, as always. We love singing, dancing, acting, etc.
6. Best vacation spots like Chocolate Hills in Bohol, Mayon Volcano in Albay, Boracay.
7. A strong sense of humor.
8. We have great parades, feasts and entertainments.

One great country living all the traditions and wealth of each culture especially with its religion, very devoted and loved.

It's a place and where your home is

Every other country are simply beautiful in their own ways, no doubt, but the Philippines is one of the best.

- The people are amazing. I may not speak for all, but they are really easy to get along with, friendly and approachable, despite the current problems they are facing.

- They have a mixture of diverse culture as a result from being a former colony of Spain and USA, that it is nearly impossible to distinguish their real, original identity of who they were, making them look left-out in Asia. That's what makes them a Filipino.

- The country has a lot of wonderful tourist spots, from historical places to refreshing beaches.

- They celebrate holidays, such as Christmas and New Year, the best.

- They are also a peace-loving nation.

- Who hasn't heard of Manny Pacquiao?

- English is widely understood in the entire country. Even the uneducated, they can still speak and understand it. In fact, most are confident with their English. ...more

And also that's why other country want this place because the people and places here are very natural made by god this place is very beautiful no need a surgery for the people, no need a construction for the places to visit the essenceof being natural will always appear

Filipinos are clannish so family welfare is on top of their priority list.
Resilience is the hallmark trait of Filipinos. In times of calamities, they can still afford to smile while helping one another get over the crisis.
Fiilipino overseas foreign workers can be found virtually in most countries of the world because of their good skills, talents, and proficiency in English.
Under the helm of development-oriented and incorruptible leaders, the Philippines outpaces all Asian countries with its GDP growth rate 7.8%.
Above all, the majority of Filipinos are united in their firm faith in God.

The philippines is a very great country, great people, beautiful nature, very hospitable, talented, brave, amazing history. When I first saw this country when I'm at america, I fell in love at first sight, its shape looks like a chopped dog when you saw it on the map.. Even though there is a heavy traffic in edsa, I still love it.. On the first day of my journey in this country, I was captivated on its natural beauty.. For me, the philippines is deserving on this rank one as the mopst beautiful country in asia.

Great people, great food, great places... AND... My soul mate live in this country...

.. Philippines is a nice country with lots of nice people living in it.. Speaks English fluently. :))

The people here are very accommodating and caring.. A catholic country.. Very religious and have faith in our Lord Jesus Christ..

It seems to me that Philippines' education system is merely an inferior version of the more sophisticated, American version. I am Filipino, and am strongly opposed to the teachers' greed of authority and power, enough that they would hit students and such who simply do not have the mindset to sustain a grade primarily based on discipline. Their education system is not only boring, but they are not TEACHING kids how to learn. They shove a bunch of multiplication tables down their throat and shove them down their throat. That is quite disagreeable. The Philippines needs more creative, young binds to boost and solve the problems of corruption and poor infrastructure. It needs more innovators and inventors, not simply boring formulaic people who are quite linear. I mean such people are acceptable in tolerable amounts, but not as a dominance. Think of the best countries in the world and look at their education systems and compare them to the countries not faring as well. Merci, et Bon nuit.

YEAH! Mabuhay PILIPINAS! Although Philippines is the most corrupt country in the world, They have the most Talented, Hardworking men and women I Ever seen! So thank you Philippines I am a Half Filipino and I am PROUD OF that

Why is Philippines the best for me?... their are 3 reasons why: first its because of the most beautiful places (Land formation and body of water) design by God and the world class bio-diversity you can found in this country.. Second its because of Uniqueness you can found in this country their are unique arts, food, culture, tradition etc. and the most interesting history of this country, and the last and the best thing I can proud of in this country are the people the Filipino fighting spirit, because a lot of tragedy that can test how Filipinos are fighters and stable such us natural calamities like historical super typhoons, earthquakes, tsunami, historical volcanic eruption, etc. and man-made such as Wars, political issues, bullied buy big country, garbing of territory, poverty etc. but Filipinos are survivors they pass this trial, that is the reason why is the Philippines is the great and top country, its because of the citizen that symbolize how their country is the best one. ...more
