Have been there close to a dozen times and love it.
Hadn’t been there until about 10 years ago when a mate got married to a girl who was born in the Philippines. We went with them a couple of times and stayed with her family and fell in love with the place especially Panay where most of her family lives.

Got a friend in Cebu at the moment. Went swimming with whale Sharks yesterday.

Check out Bohol as well if you like beaches

My ex has some of her family living over there, and occasionally goes for extended stays. If you are white you'll be treated like royalty.

I first went to the Philippines for work in the 80's, went back again early 90's. I spent time in Manilla and Subic Bay, and was there during the various attempted coups that occurred during the period. It was strange sitting in a burger joint drinking beers when there would be a gun fight out in the street between Soldiers and rebels. After the firing stopped, the police would swoop in and throw the body in the back of the truck and everyone would go back to drinking.

I am glad that we didn't have mobile phones back then! ;)

A few of my friends in Taiwan have gone there over the last six months.

Sensational spot if you like beaches, snorkeling and scuba diving.

Has been described as putting Latin America in Asia. People are very friendly, easy to talk to and can speak great English from the same friend's feedback.
