Just needing suggestions on which would be the best islands in the Philippines to island-hop. I am looking at spending about 4 weeks doing so and want to relax yet get amongst the culture and its people. All suggestions are very much appreciated. Ohhh, i want to be there for March 2012.

    Fly into manila & stay a few days to acclimitize, go to museums, learn some history (walking tour with carlos celdran, fort santiago, corregidor island) do some shopping then go north to ilocos (pagudpud, vigan, batanes), pampanga (mt. pinatubo) baguio & banaue then maybe make your way south an island at a time then fly back to manila. depending on what you actually like to do on vacation, these are the notable islands: palawan (underground river, beach), boracay (best beach island), tagaytay (taal volcano), cebu, davao, bohol, bicol- camsur (mayon volcano, sorsogon swim with whale sharks) , banaue (UN heritage site rice terraces, mountain province, sagada), mindoro (bellaroca), etc. you need to make sure you hook up with really good travel agents..

    My contact in the Philippines is Mrs. Marietta Martinez You can send her an email at [email protected] through her secretary Racs. She is well known in Manila for arranging tours to Europe for youth groups and for local Philippine tours for foreign Rotarians.
