Along with Ryan, Scott has at least 25 destinations to cover in the Philippines – places that are mostly overlooked by mainstream travel guides and even by Filipino travellers themselves. He loves the expanses of white sandy Philippine beaches, the colourful history and cuisine of each province he visits and the beautiful, culturally-diverse Philippine archipelago.
