The Boracay is the best beach area in East Asia. Nevertheless, foreigners have to be very careful in the Philippines. Crime is a big problem in Manila and foreigners are always their target. I have friends who had a gun pointing his head from a thief in Manila; and some other were chased by the rebels group. Luckily they were fit and able to run away; or they might become hostages. Avoid Manila city and the South of the Philippines would be my advice.

I have visited Cebu, far away from Manila. It is a very interesting place with rich cultures-mix between the East and the West; and for sure a lot of water activities. Too bad my camera was broken right before I went underwater.
