Hello there! I'm new here and I hope you will greet me with warmth and wisdom.
I am running a humanitarian project in Carigara, Leyte. This is the first time I will be doing so I'd like feedback! I would like to be very cheap so cheap places to stay and go would be nice. Things to do in Manila would be fantastic. Something college students would enjoy, but no clubbing. We are not much into that. Also the place to go for New Years!
There are a total of four to six of us. We will be gone around 3 weeks.

Probably Shanghai. I would like to go further into the country, but I'm not sure if that is safe/affordable. I would also like things to do in that region cheaply. This will all be down time, all in the winter month.
