    A friend told me Boracay was a good place as well. However, it's often crowded and the people should maintain the cleanliness of the place. Still, it's definitely worth a visit.

    Few years back I have visited some places of Philippines and Manila and Boracay are the highlights of my visit. Boracay is a one of the most beautiful and tropical islands of Philippines and has 2 wonderful beaches namely White beach and Bulabog beach. This island is located approximately 200 miles from south of Manila and offers many things to do. One of the most exciting places in Boracay is the Bat Caves and these are the most adventurous and attractive caves that you shouldnot miss during your trip. Cave full of bats can be seen here and during sunset thousands of bats come over from the White Beach. The underwater diving takes place a major role here and it gives wonderful experience for everyone who visits this island. Para sailing, wind surfing and flying over the white beaches are also mind blowing.

    Also this island has Kar-Tir Shell Museum which has the best sea shells ever found. Never miss to visit the White beach and the swimming in its crystal water. You can buy beach wear and home decors in this island for less price.

    I have also visited Banaue Rice Terraces, one of the stunning beauty of Philippines, so don't miss this places as well.

    Ya, I too spend 2 weeks at Bantayan Island, oh! it was lovely! took a bus from Cebu to Bantayan, and the travelled around four hours. I went with my 2 friends and stayed in an aircon cottage, it was very comfortable. It' was worth a trip and enjoyed the white sand beach with lots of fun, took great photos too!! highly recommended.

    From Baguio you can go down to La Union. You can try surfing in San Juan La Union.
    In addition you can go north like Pagudpud Ilocos Norte they have beautiful
    beaches there. They also offer other activities like treeking and other ecological
    land adventures.

    Ilocano's as the locals call themselves are very friendly and accommodating people. They
    would even offer their homes for free when the needs arises :)

    I would suggest Puerto Princesa Palawan, U can visit the Underground River and best beaches are within your choice. You can have El Nido and Amanpulo. But Puerto Princesa is already surrounded by beaches.
    The sea water may taste a little bit salty that any other beach I"ve been to but the water is not sticky and will not get a stingy reaction in your skin from the sun.
