My partner and I will be travelling to the Philippines for 2 weeks over the Dec 2013/Jan 2014 new year period.
We are really lost on where to spend New Years. Boracay seems like the place to be, but accommodation is already quite booked out so we are considering other destinations within the Philippines.
We are in our early 20s, want somewhere with happening bars, a great party atmosphere (and possibly fireworks), where we can meet other travellers around our age. We want to be in a beach location though, so ruling out Manila or Cebu.
Budget isn't an issue - we are very open to staying in either budget backpackers or 5 star resorts. We like a bit of everything!
Thank you for assistance!
