Taal Volcano, Batangas Province

(3.8/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, Taal Volcano remains one of Philippines' smallest, yet most active volcanoes with 33 recorded eruptions so far. Formed by previous prehistoric eruptions caused by the meeting of two tectonic plates, the site represents an observatory for studying and predicting natural disasters. Inside the caldera, you can find a freshwater sulphuric lake surrounded by over 40 overlapping cones and craters. Explore the natural wonders and thermal areas that envelop the volcano, and don't forget your swimsuit if you wish to take a quick dip in the lake.
