Another great blog

I found this and thought I would share. Not sure if this has previously been posted on the forum but would be great under FAQs.

Great blog and one of my faveorites. In fact, I've recommended this here a couple of times before and it's good you posted it for those who've missed it. Here are some of my other favorite blogs that might interest you just in case you haven't seen them yet:

One of the best blogs I've seen and worth going through all of it if you've got time. I like the comparisons with Thailand regarding the saturation of tourism there which reminded me of why I started going to the Philippines in the first place.

Thanks for sharing bryantpark88.

I also enjoyed reading those.

Perhaps it would be great to set these up in FAQs so that visitors considering the Philippines as a destination can read other persons experiences. Reading a few of these blogs could certainly entice them into visiting. It makes me want to go back today!

I'm with you there Tommo....perhaps someone can post these blogs as they can be an invaluable source of first-hand and more current information particularly compared to guide books.

Oh and here's another good one btw...
