Will be in the Philippines from December 16-22Hello,
I am currently working in Suzhou China and this will be my first time away from home at Christmas. One of my friends and I have decided to go to the philippines and thailand over our break. Because we will only be in the philippines for such a short amount of time we were looking at some of the best places to go. As we are young and working girls we do not have much money. We want to experience some of the beauty of the Philippines while still not spending everything we make. We are up for both touristy parts (yes i know it would be more expensive) and little island that are beautiful that no one knows about. We are just starting to plan our trip, so more research will be done soon. But i wanted to get ideas from people who have been to the Philippines before.
Any help would be appreciated.

1"We are up for both touristy parts (yes i know it would be more expensive) and little island that are beautiful that no one knows about"
Not so easy to find both of those together, but maybe Boracay for the touristy experience and Caribou Island (very close by) for the Island thats less known about.
Or Alona Beach and Balicasag Island..
Or Puerto Galera and Talipanan beach nearby..

5in that amount of time I think I would just concentrating on a single destination, Boracay is the most touristed destination in the PI and it might be that appeal to you, its is pretty and there will be lots to do. Flying to Dumaguete and then touring that area would be fun as asean suggests, Siquijor would be quiet and out of the way or you could look at Bohol, you could fly into Tagbilaran City.
