In SGN, we aim to bring different experiences to members. We want to select different locations every year to build up different family memories.
We aim to find somewhere bringing different cultures and, in the meantime, make your trip count. Not just getting business won, but also getting life-long friends and memories. We believe to choose the Philippines will be an amazing and advanced idea. We do not tend to follow other networks’ directions as we want our members to have different and unique experiences.
Why the Philippines?
The stunning sights above and under the sea, the culture, the hospitality, the food, and of course, the friendly people willing to welcome visitors wherever and whenever. Spending a night or two on the island-blessed country is not enough when you want to savour all the Philippines has to offer.
The Philippines is an archipelago and we boast more than 7,000 islands and islets, each with their own unique beauty.
Climbing in the Philippines has gained tremendous attention in the past couple of years, thanks to outdoor enthusiasts who are very keen on promoting the beautiful mountains the country has. When in Davao, reach the highest peak of the country in Mt. Apo at 2,954 meters.
Powdery white sand, sugary cream, brown, gray, and pink, you name it and the Philippines has it. Beaches in Boracay Island, Palawan, and Cebu City boast white sand, almost seemingly like a powder. Golden, creamy sand on the beaches in Pangasinan, north of Luzon, a couple of hours from the Philippines’ capital Manila, will also stun you.
Filipinos are known to be hospitable. Arriving at the airport, you will be greeted by friendly people who will assist you in your needs. Cab drivers will try to make conversation with you and, if you are lucky, they can give you suggestions on what to try and where to visit.
Whale sharks and underwater friends
Anilao in Batangas, a couple of hours away from Manila, has a lot of diving spots to visit and you can dive in the Philippines with friendly sharks too. This is the main attraction in Oslob, Cebu, where whale shark watching can be included in tours. Just don’t forget to take precautionary measures.
Partying in the Philippines is more fun! It can be in the bars of Quezon City or in Boracay, or just a simple get-together in a Filipino home. One thing that will not be absent from every party is the karaoke machine, which has been the center of every occasion due to the Filipino love for singing.
Wine and beer
Parties and get-togethers will not be complete without the drinks! Filipinos love merry making with a couple of beers on the side or a glass of wine. In Quezon Province, it boasts of its lambanog or a coconut wine.
