I'm devastated about the Typhoon and sincerely hope that everyone is ok. Like I've posted elsewhere, I am due to fly to Manila on Tuesday and then on to Boracay for a 6 day holiday. I've never been to Philippines and am/was so looking forward to it!
Obviously I don't want to travel to a region that has been destroyed and place further burden on infrastructure, especially if there is no power/water etc. I know potentially boats may not be running etc..
I was looking for a relaxing 'beach' holiday with cocktails, massages and some fun activities. Where else in the Philippines would you recommend if I still decide to make use of my flights from Australia to Manila but don't want to go/can't go to Boracay. At this stage I was flying from Manila-Kalibo, then bus down to Caticlan.
