here's a book for the wild and active people in the Philippines and for those visiting the Philippines. it's a big book entitled "A Year of Adventures" 2008 edition. this book promotes the different adventures like trekking, 4x4 rough ride, rock climbing and water sports in the Philippines.this is a collection of writers and photographers view of adventures in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. it includes the humpback spotting in the Babuyan islands, trekking Batanes, Dugong search at Malta, climbing Mt. Apo, kayaking El Nido, biking the Cordilleras, dsicovering endemic species in Sibuyan island and 31 other adventures. the book also promotes environmental preservation and tourism for the travel freaks.
you'll find out that there's so much to visit in this archipelago. it is now available on the bookstores in Manila. Not sure if its already available in Visayas and Mindanao.
a book that will definitely prove Readers Digest's (Asian edition) mistake of not including the Philippines in its April 2008 issue. their editors and writers must read this book.
