Did you know that there are actually six UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Philippines? Yes, out of the 1,121 World Heritage Sites scattered around the World, three cultural and three natural sites are found in the country. Aside from these six sites, there are 29 other sites that are also in the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List in the Philippines.
