The Philippines has numerous gorgeous and stunning waterfalls all throughout its thousands of islands. One of the most stand outs among these waterfalls that I'm blessed to have visited is the Asik-Asik Falls of Cotabato.

The Philippine beaches have long been given the spotlight, but now is the time to show the ri ...
