Tebow was born in the Philippines' Makati City in 1987 to missionary parents. As such, the Philippines, where he lived until he was three years old, remains a special spot for him and he returns often, especially since his father founded an orphanage there in 1992. Between his own missionary work and time spent in outlying areas, Tebow doesn't have much time for partying in Manila, though. Instead, he recommends getting outside the big city to experience more authentic Philippine culture. "Manila's great, but you definitely have to see the countryside," he says. "I would say Bacacay is a really cool place. You have to see the villages, you have to see the islands, you have to see the real people of the Philippines. That goes a lot further out than just Manila."
