Coming to the Philippines in the month of April? Remember not to miss – Aliwan Fiesta, one of the most popular festivals in the Philippines. Started a decade ago, it has successfully garnered a strong fan-base across the nation and the globe. Street dancing competition, beauty pageants, fireworks displays, floral floats; name an event that this festival doesn’t include. What more could you ask for?
Aliwan Fiesta is also referred as the ‘Mother of all festivals’ and all the good reasons are backing it. Every year, contingents hailing from every corner of the nation visit the country to compete in dance parade and float competitions. Not only they get a chance to win the million-peso grand prize, but they also see this festival as an opportunity to promote their respective regions both economically and tourism-wise.
Tourists visiting Manila experience the richness of Filipino cultures and heritage. They witness finest performances from different tribes, like Dinagyang and Sinulog, among others, who give their A-performances to grab the whooping prize money. Take out some previous time out of your busy schedules to attend this festival that has a tendency to transfix any individual on this planet.
It’s more fun in the Philippines
Crescent-shaped beaches dusted with talcum powder-like sand; uninhabited tropical islands, lush impenetrable jungles bristling with unique wildlife, the thrusting soaring capital of Manila, historic cities, a diverse local cuisine and culture … the Philippines has all this and more. Go there and discover some of the 7,107 islands of this vibrant archipelago where English is widely spoken, the people are fun loving and life moves to a lilting beat.
