I am considering the Philippines in January 2005. I guess I need to know some information about the tourist area in Manila, getting there from the airport, and which beaches or islands are worth heading to. I would expect to stay one or two weeks in the Phils.

Thanks

If you want get close to Manila, go to the white beaches in Puerto Galera.

If you have more time, go to Boracay.

Boracay (www.boracayresorts.com) and Coco Beach are really nice resorts! I highly recommend them. Puerto Galera is nice as well.
