My wife and I are looking for a holiday destination for 2015, we are doing Vietnam/Cambodia in 6 weeks, but I feel the need to start planning our next main holiday. I have always fancied the Philippines, and after a little research have come across Boracay, which sounds perfect for us, as we like to relax during the day, and go out and have a meal and drinks of a night, we do like a bit of nightlife, we are young at heart mid forties. We would like to stay in a nice mid-range hotel, as close as possible to the beach, a pool at the hotel would be nice. From the little I know, I think Station 1/2 would be our cup of tea Any advice on hotels would be great. Also how long does it take to get to Boracay from Manila ? and what is the best method of transport ? Is Manila worth spending a night or two at en-route ? And finally what sort of flight prices can I expect to pay from the UK to Manila? We mostly do D.I.Y holidays.
I realise I am asking a lot of questions, and would really appreciate any info you knowledgeable lot can give. BTW we will be looking to travel Jan/Feb 2015 I assume this is a decent time of year to visit. Many thanks in advance for your time and input.
