I have been searching for days now and still can't narrow down a good location. To start off with, me and another male friend (26 and 30 single) are looking to spend 7-10 days in the Philippines with a fairly open budget. We will be coming from Singapore Jan or Feb 2015 so ideally I was thinking a NS flight to a larger city would be nice and we could set up "camp" in or around said city. We like smaller bars/cocktail bars and mixing with locals/girls and non touristy areas. We would also like to spend some days in the rural areas Forrests/jungles and on boats/beaches for some days as well. Is there a larger city with an airport, not too far from rural areas with nice beaches/islands/jungles.
