Suggestion for a travel plan in Philippines- August

Myself and two of my friends have planned for a short vacation to Philippines from aug 8th till 14th. This will be our first visit far east. All of us are in the late 20's. Expecting for some fun filled holidays.

Any suggestions?? how can we plan the trip and which all places we should not miss?

FAQs To the right ------> is the best place to start!

Lots of great information and a must read prior to your trip. perhaps it will help you to narrow down some choices. It depends on your interests and budget as to what is recommended...beaches, culture, adventure etc etc

Philippines is a great holiday destination.

If its nightlife you are looking for then I agree with the suggestions of miglovin. Makati for city life and partying and Boracay for beach life and partying .

But we are unsure of your exact interests and requirements.

Thanks everyone.!

We do party, but that is not our main concern. We love travelling, want to see some new places, engage in some adventurous activities. Of course we wud luv to relax on the beaches. it is like we found a lot of places to go around, but was not sure about how to go about.

If weather permits,or does not permit,then go trekking through the 2000 year old Rice Terraces.-banaue,batad etc and cap it by reaching sagada riding on top of a jeepney to reach hanging coffins

@ MH

Why do I get the impression that you just asked a naughty question? ;-)
