About Silent Gardens

Silent Gardens is a traveler's guide to the Philippines. For now over 10 years we are living and traveling in the Philippines. We like to share our experiences, our problems and their solutions with you.


The Philippines have awesome landscapes and beaches. But it is very difficult to get there because transportation is organized on a narrow local level. We show you how to get to the destination of your dreams.


The Silent Gardens Team is a core group of programmers, designers and communicators. Many freelancers and contributors live all over the Philippines. They like to share their local information with you.
