The canyon is amazing, but should be cleaned more often. Best to visit when the sun goes down, the view is breathtaking.

I traveled to Lake Matka in the summer - July. I can only imagine it may be too cold in December. Do you think they may be closed during that time. I suggest you contact the Macedonian Tourist Office.

As a Canadian, a tourist visa is not required for us....just a passport. You should check with the Macedonian Embassy in Riyadh if a Philippine passport will suffice and may not need a tourist visa.
