Hi people,My daughter and I are going to visit the Philippines from dec. 22nd until jan 17th. We are going to stay in Luzon (Angeles City). I would like to ask you if you have any ideas of places we could visit. We love the ocean and the nature in general. We're also interested in history and of course also both shopping and a little nightlife. Grateful for any response.

you are so lucky because christmas here in the philippines is soooo colorful! i suggest you visit the University of Santo Tomas campus (we will be having a university-wide party on the 20th, so be sure to drop by coz the campus will be oh-so-pretty ^_^), and Intramuros , both in Manila, for some history-related trip. ^___________^

wow, that's very cool, you're coming to the Philippines! I know you will enjoy it here if you love ocean and nature, it's all around the country. Angeles has Clark to visit and nearby is Subic Bay. You can also go to other islands in the country like the Southern part. Anyway, can't tell you much here but instead browse some relevant info from the community of expats, foreigners, retirees, tourists here in the Philippines, it's at www.livinginthephilippines.com. I know it will help, the owner of the site is my friend so he can help you and the 8,000+ members of their forum.:)

It's great that you're going to visit the Philippines.The people will welcome you. You can check our government's site to see the places you could visit. This at http://www.tourism.gov.ph/great_hideaways/beach.asp#1.If you could get by Cebu and discover our historical heritage, there is a lot in here.You could also visit Bohol too.

Beaches in Bohol, Philippines - This picture shows one of the wonderful beaches in Bohol, Philippines.
Hi there, Im from the Philippines and I tell you youre gonna love it here. You said you love the ocean, nature and history, actually we have those three in just one prvince, and that is Bohol. Bohol is a province humbly situated in the island Visayas. It is here where you will find world-class beaches and Im sure youll love them. This province also preserves the history of our country since we have the oldest church in this province and lots of landmarks and detinations that will give you a glimpse of our countries history. Nightlife may not be that superb in this province but there is still a little happenings during the night but if you want a "real" nighlife, I suggest that you have it in our countries capital, Manila. Hope youll have a happy trip and rest assured youll love it here. Good Luck to you!

Visit Davao City. You'll surely enjoy your stay here. Some facts about my beautiful place: 1. We have the second cleanest water in the whole world (next to switzerland)! 2. We have the tallest mountain - Mt. Apo - in the country. 3. Our police performance is ranked no. 1 in the country. 4. We are the only city in the whole philippines that has 911. 5. The people are the most hospitable and the friendliest. 6. the place is one of the cleanest in the country. 7. you dont have to worry about getting mugged or anything becasue crime rate here is one of the lowest.

I would suggest you to visit Manila and Cebu. Night life in Manila is great, as it is the biggest and commercial place in Phillipines. Cebu is full of natural beauty and museums. Inshort phillipines is a great place to visit :) Have a good time there
