Reviews - What do customers think about The Philippines: Islands of Enchantment?

Crisp clear colourful  Jun 12, 2005
I got this hardbound book from my brother, and it contains a lot of photographs of cultural parades, and such. The book definately doesnt leave out practices, and even have pictures of rural areas and islands. They show how some areas have not really assimilated into the Western culture as adapted by the urban. This book shows the utopian side of the Philippines, but didnt really get into the details that while this is tropicana in its finest, the country is dangerous to visit as of late, and the lack of political history in the book is a bit dissapointing. I also have gotten weary of pictures showing Filipinos in their religious festivities garb, and the famous self-flogging during All Souls Day (seriously, Filipinos in middle of nowhere only do practice this) which I have seen on television, and was miffed to see this RARE scene in the book. Waste of pages.
