Can someone please give me some advice regarding flights to The Phillipines from the UK. I have searched unsucessfully for a direct flight to Manila from London, but seem to be drawing a blank. My partner and I are planning to go around March/April next year. (Have to get away in the cold months! Just booked two weeks in Goa for Nov/Dec.) We want to go for two weeks. First of all, how long is the flight? What are the best islands to visit that are beautiful but there is also civilisation (eating out, massage etc). What will the weather be like then? I'd be grateful for any advice. I know no tour operators seem to go to the Phillipines except Audley Travel who are VERY expensive and its not fair of me to ring for advice and waste their time if I don't go with them.
