I'm a Thailand/Pattaya veteran but have only been to the PI once about 4 years ago.
In a nutshell I have a month off work coming up from late September and am considering a trip to the PI. For reasons best left unsaid I have ruled out Thailand.
So I am thinking about a month spent travelling around different places in the PI.
The purpose of my trip is not to monger although I am happy to indulge if I get the chance...but I really want to see some of the islands and get a feel for the place.
I am quite happy to take long bus and ferry journeys...in fact I would prefer them to flying generally speaking. And whilst I enjoy luxury now and again I am happy to rough it if needs be.
So that leads to my question to you all...if you had a month in the PI where would you go? I should say that Angeles (Balibago) for maybe 4-5 days and Manila (maybe 2-3 days) are a given. Where else?
Island hopping in the Visayas sounds good...maybe base myself in Cebu?
Comments, suggestions are welcome.....
