A Quiz About The Philippines

Updated on December 14, 2019

Asereht really enjoys reading books and surfing the net. Follow along her journey as she tries her hand at writing and cooking!

It's More Fun In The Philippines

The Philippine archipelago lies on the Southeast Asia in the western Pacific Ocean and divided into three groups of islands, namely Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Filipinos are a naturally friendly, fun-loving people, and anywhere in the world, Filipinos are known for their hospitality. They are also capable of adapting to and withstand almost any situation, as they are no stranger to natural disasters. Wherever I go, I see many foreigners from other countries; South Koreans, Japanese, Americans, Germans, British, Iranians, and many more. Last year, the South Koreans topped the list of foreign visitors. Others go here to study, while others are on vacations and business.

My First Quiz

Much has been said and written about my country, the Philippines. There are positive ones coming from the visitors who enjoyed their stay here, and the negative ones from those who had a not-so-good experience. To test what you know about the Philippines, I have made a quiz. This is my first quiz so please, bear with me.

      Not as good as I would have liked, but I did find it educational and intersting.

      5/9 and 4/10 probably not bad for an American who has never been to the Philippines.

      I took some of your polls, but forgot to "like" this lens. I came back to like it as it is quite good and brings back good memories from when I lived there.

      Not so good but it was an interesting quiz. We don't hear much about the social or cultural side of the Philippines but we get a lot about its politics.
