I live in Korea with my wife who is originally from the Philippines and we have promised to take her brother on holiday next year for a week when he graduates from university. We are right at the beggining of our plans and so far we are thinking of either:
or perhaps Taiwan.
Basically the cheapest I think we can travel is to fly with Cebu Pacific from Korea to Manila and then fly on from there, that is why we chose these particular countries as they are pretty cheap to fly to from here in Korea.
We are really looking for which country our money will go furthest in. We obviously go to the Philppines a couple of times a year anyway and we want to take her brother out of the Philippines as he has never been abroad before.
Our budget is as cheap as possible as I am an ESL Teacher here in Korea so I don't have loads of money.
We will probably only be going for a week so we won't really have the time to travel a lot when we get there.
I have been to Thailand before so that one is probably last on my list, but if it turns out to be the cheapest then I think we could go there.
If anyone has any thoughts or ideas then it would be greatly appreciated.
