The 7,000 islands that comprise the Philippines are the forgotten islands of South East Asia. The country is a curious mix of Asian, Spanish and American cultural influences that range from Iberian colonial architecture to ancient tribal traditions and an obsession with American rock n' roll. Traveler Shilpa Mehta begins her Filipino adventure learning about the country's political history in Luzon. Traveling south through San Fernando she reaches the capital Manila. Leaving the nightlife of Manila behind Shilpa goes on to explore the islands of Boracay, Negros, Mindanao and Palawan.

Globe Trekker hasn't sold out yet so they are not trying to sell you a vacation. They just shoot interesting videos on location with fun loving travelers who are not afraid to try new things and occasionally push the envelope with local cuisine and customs. I hope the Globe Trekker series continues because the next best thing to traveling to exotic locations is watching these videos with awesome soundtracks and spectacular camera work.
DO NOT BUY THIS DVD - this is the worst product I've ever seen. The producers and host of this DVD owe the Filipino people a big apology. Shame on you for producing the DVD after you were graciously welcomed by them.
If you want to learn more about the Philippines, I recommend you call the nearest Philippines tourism office instead. Before visiting the Philippines in 2008, I called the office in Manhattan and they give me DVD's that showcase the Philippines as a tourist destination spot. My family enjoyed our two-weeks in the Philippines so much that we are planning to go back there next year after youngest graduates from Harvard.
