How long is enough?!

I'm visiting hong kong for 17 days in may/june and we're gonna fly down to boracay for a bit to relax (go from one extreme to the other!)

i was thinking 6 nights would be plenty to see the sites, relax, and have seom fun?

too long? too short? just right?!

I hate being referred to as a foreigner. Why is it? I think in some ways it is discriminatory. Most western countries dont refer to visitors or tourists or emmigrants as foreigners.

if you want to truly relax and unwind, then 6 nights is just fine. however, you can also spend 4 nights in boracay then 2 nights in manila to see the cultural/historical sights of manila plus do a little shopping.

Mastur u r right, even Norway calls filipinos or other non Norwegians aliens, as does states and other places. Edwinic you dont need to insult me or attempt to, my comment was not aimed at you, just a point of discussion. You tend to go gutter ball very quickly without the bigger discussion in mind, as Mastur pointed out in his alien comment. Totally not called for.
