First of all I am Serena, 26, from Italy, ad second of all: yes, I've read some of the top questions on the right, but I was wondering if i could bother you a little and submit my own personal question! Hope it's ok :)
I've not decided yet, but my boyfriend and I are considering some locations for our 2-3 weeks holiday next january, and Philippines really drew my attention!
What puzzles me the most is the fact that I can't figure out what "kind" of vacation would that be! Let me explain myself: we've been to Thailand (Phuket), rented a scooter and explored the island, but with such a variegated archipelago as the Philippines one, it would be a shame to stick to just one island, wouldn't it?
On the other hand, though, from a first look at them, some of the most interesting islands seem quite far from each other! Would it be possible to visit 2/3 of them without wasting too much time in travelling?
I know for sure that Boracay would suit us, since we also like something to do once the sun goes down (but we're not party animals!) and I wonder if any of the other islands combines stunning natural beauties (beaches, waterfalls, snorkeling) with some low key entertainment (restaurants, bars, mixing with locals).
In the end, everything should fit in our budget (€2000 each), which maybe is the toughest part...?
Many thanks! :)
