Is True that Philippines is a Beautiful Country?

Every time my husband and I went somewhere, people will asked what country am I belong, and I will say I came from Philippines, every time they heard that they will say Philippines is a paradise Island or Philippines is a beautiful Island, they mentions some places in Philippines just like Subic bay, Borakay, Bohol, Cebu, and some places in Mindanao. Now I am thinking why people say that Philippines is a beautiful Island and while Filipino people wants to go out to another country to live.
Or maybe the truth is Philippines is a beautiful Island but a poor country. I even not recognize that my country is beautiful because only those rich people can afford to go to beautiful places Philippines.

I consider that Philippines is a beautiful country..the abundance of its natural treasure, and the amusing spots that you can only find in the PI..Filipinos sometimes have this crab mentality...sometimes they have trouble appreciating the beauty...I love to live in the PI..even my hubby wanted to settle down there..someday when we're old!
It's true that PI is a poor country but not that poor compare to Africa..I mean PI is improving..but through corrupt government..the people have the tendency to live their country..also the work force is not that high compare many countries..but hey! PI is unique!
Salamat tuod sa comment ha...sige exchange ta ug mga comments..hehhehe!

you're right po only the rich can afford to go to the beautiful places here in the Philippines....that's the irony of life....the poor can't appreciate the beauty of our country because they are deprived of the privilege to visit the beautiful places we have....

Our country is really beautiful, I have the privilege to see some of the islands during our trip 2 years ago. Some people might be excited to get to those popular tourist spots but there are also some Pinoys who travelled and get to see the less popular but as beautiful places as the tourist spots. We have met fellow Pinoys who every year travel together. We were given advices on which place to visit, etc. Beautiful places in the Philippines don't always equate with rich people. Maybe,avoid the expensive tourist spot and enjoy the other beauty our country has to offer...Ooopps sorry I get carried away!! thanks for the space here!!

I love Philippines. me and my husband can't wait to go back there to settle or retire. I appreciate the beauty of our country -- it's the mentality of pinoy is the problem which i totally agree with dhmez, we thought that america or other country is better but it all the same....when were US we earned dollar yet we spend dollar. there are things we can leave without not like other country especially being closer with our family.

The Philippines is a country rich in natural resources and a human capital grouping characterized by industry and intelligence.

It is actually the politicians who's caused all the mess we are all in now. Government officials come and go and each time the nation is left more in debt and the poor growing in huge numbers.

This is also the reason why many aspire to go overseas thinking that the better opportunities are found there. Actually, I can't blame them.

But this is the only country we have. This will always be our home no matter what.

I am glad you have this chance to make your life better with the person you love even if it could perhaps, be difficult sometimes. I hope you stay well and cheers to you!
