Today, we released a new country/regional souvenir for the Philippines. If you have found a geocache in the Philippines, you automatically receive the souvenir on your profile.

The Philippines is a country as well as an archipelago in Southeast Asia. It is located in the western Pacific Ocean and consists of about 7,640 islands. The Philippines is defined by its secluded white beaches, emerald rice fields, and turquoise waters.
