Which time of the year is it? That can affect your decision.... but clear waters and beach? Thailand or Philippines(Palawan)...

Been to all 3 places; Manila does not really have any beaches you have to take an hour flight either to Bohol, Boracay, Cebu or Palawan. If you fly into Bali, beaches are just minutes away. Phuket is almost like Krabi and Koh Samui. But one thing for sure- the whitest, finest, beach belongs to Boracay!

How about Boracay vs Lombok, Indonesia?
