Summary
Shilpa Mehta visits some of the Philippines' 7,000 islands in this Globe Trekker video. On the island of Luzon, she visits the giant statue of Ferdinand Marcos, learning about life during his rule, and a faith healer renowned for performing surgery without tools or incisions. Shilpa then visits the famous Hanging Coffins and amazing rice terraces, often considered the eighth wonder of the world, before stopping at San Fernando, where real-life crucifixions take place as a form of penance on Good Friday. She witnesses cockfighting and child prostitution, goes to a ballroom dancing nightclub, dives off exotic shores, takes a steam engine ride, samples local delicacies like roast pig and duck embryo on the island of Mindanao, visits the beautiful but controversial Saint Joseph's Chapel, and tours the open prison of Puerta Princesa. Finally, Shilpa visits the last discovered tribe of the Philippines, the Tau't Batu who live in the caves in the jungle near El Nido.
