The thing I found most disappointing during my trip to the Philippines was the food: a dreadful mixture of American fast food and a type of Asian fusion. Though I may've simply been unlucky with each of the restaurants I tried, this is the Asian country that most disappointed me from a gastronomical point of view. Fortunately, it does have plenty of other wonderful things to offer. So I quickly learned to live with the fact that I wasn't going to eat all that well during the two weeks of my stay.
The most incredible memory I have of my stay on this Philippines island is that of my underwater diving trip! When I did it, I'd just completed the diving training course and was able to explore the seabed accompanied by a guide, exploring as deep as 60 feet! What I got to see was worthy of a National Geographic feature! You simply cannot imagine the whole universe down there until you've dived in and seen it for yourself! It's an experience of a lifetime, and one I recommend to everybody!
