The Philippines is an island chain including 7,000+ islands. The primary mode of transport in between islands is the boat. It can be called by different names: banca or paraw, and, to the less lucky, speedboat, ship or yacht. But we’re not having this list to include the most pricey boats. We looked at the pictures and observed that there’s simply so many lovely VisitPinas-tagged shots of boats, with the gorgeous Philippine surroundings

Art imitates life, and, in a lot of cases, life imitates art. We began with 6 images of boats in a Philippine setting. We might have stopped at our 10 most favorite shots, but we’re practically sure, as holds true in previous instances, that a small number is never ever sufficient to accommodate the wonderful images of anything immersed in Philippine scenery.
