Priority list of eight identified islands in the Filippino archipelagoTo all Filippino fans;
Still planning for our next trip I have identified 8 islands me and my wife would like to visit. We are staying for aprox four weeks and we know for sure that we will not have the time to visit them all. I think a good plan is to exclude four or five of them from the list.
It is in this matter assistance is needed;
I hope you would like to help me to make a prioritylist from 1 to eight in terms of your own preferences and i terms of
beautiful sceenery, nice white sandy beaches, good diving and snorkeling, nice "local people feeling", nice and comfortable living without being on the higher price scale.
Please take the challenge and try to prioritise with a figure from 1 to 8 concerning the following islands;
Corong Corong, El Nido
Panglao, Alona Beach
Thank you all for you input in this very serious matter. A nice coctail will be offered and served on three or four places to the ones that have presented the best list......:-)

8Our plan has been to go in the end of april. It might be a fact that we have to delay the trip. The "worst" case of them all is a cansellation until February next year. I guess your question is based upon the weather conditions from time to time and from area to area? Except from that, undepending on when and "excluding" the weather conditions, my priority questions remains. Most welcome to advice!

11well I haven't been to all those islands and have no interest in diving or snorkelling -so my priority wouldn't be same as yours and since im not going on the trip -I think its up to you to do more research on each place ,as mentioned no reason why cant visit most of them in 4 weeks ,if you will stay approx. 3 days in each ,also where is your starting point of trip manila or Cebu? and are you getting visa in advance or extending while in phils?.
