One of the most visited tourist spots in the Philippines, this geological phenomenon is actually a volcano within a lake within a volcano. Taal is the world's smallest volcano, but do not let appearances deceive you--it can be quite deadly when it erupts. A 45-minute ride on a banca (wooden boat) will take you to the volcano; a 15-minute trek will take you to the top of the crater. An older and larger volcano is an hour away, which requires the assistance of an experienced guide.
