Hidden gems in the Philippines are remarkable and outstanding places that not many people go to. In this list, some popular places could be included. However, we will still consider them as a “hidden gem” because despite the place’s popularity in the media, it still remains unspoiled by tourists. Inaccessibility by location and by the average tourist’s budget, and security issues are some factors why these hidden gems remain unchecked in many bucket lists.

1. Tawi-Tawi

Tawi-Tawi is the southernmost province of the Philippines. It’s predominantly a Muslim region and its image is painted by negative news of kidnapping and civil wars in the media. However, the daily lifestyle in Tawi-Tawi is much more peaceful than The Metro if we would compare crime rates.
