feature entitled, “Destinations to Watch in 2013”. It gave iconoclastic travelers another view of the country that has a lot of “deserted” beaches where travelers can get a peek of “around 7,000 of the most heavenly islands in the world.”

Written by Laura Fowler, the magazine gave rave reviews about Palawan Island, which has palm-fringed white-powder beaches, crystal-clear turquoise waters, and natural lagoons for “wild swimming”. The writer praised Bicol and its other deep-sea trenches where serious divers can enjoy “incredible water life, unspoilt coral gardens with rainbow-bright fishes, green sea turtles and dugongs”

The clincher for us at Crossroads Hostel was when it apologized to the country of Maldives because the magazine has found a new love in The Philippines.
