The Philippines is a republic, with a land area of 300.000 km2, and a population of  about 110 million, of which close to 90 % are Christians. It is an island state located East of Vietnam and North of Indonesia.


The pictures in the folders below are from a trip made in 2007, with my wife and her friend. We travelled to Manila, and from there to Batangas on the South shore, and took a boat across the waters to Mindoro and our destination Coco Beach Resort. Afterwards we went on a cruise to the islands of Boracay, the Palawan, and Apo Reef.


My equipment was only an Olympus 5 Gbit zoom camera with a diving housing used when snorkeling. Thus, the image quality does not meet the standards of present day cameras.
