i lived in saudi arabia till the age of 7 then moved to california, and have been living here since. however there is honestly no place like home. going back home to the philippines is the best feeling ever. especially if you have a lot of relatives there who you haven't seen in years. not only do you feel the warmth being with families but SHOPPING THERE IS THE BEST!! i must say even with $.50 you can buy something really cool. the prices and the quality is honestly the best, you can also negotiate with the tellers. if theres anything i could suggest it is island hopping!! don't just stay in the city....if you do that youre not getting the full experience! the provinces make you feel welcome and everyone is always smiling at you. plus the provinces have the BEST BEACHES!! ohh man..clear water plus the services. Cebu and Samar are the two places i love. Davao is also nice... very good tourist spots!! so what was your experience like??

Lived here in the Philippines all my life and I haven't even visited those cool spots that you mentioned. Honestly, if I have the time and money I'd spend them right away on a tour around the country for about 2 months with my girl. That way we'll both enjoy the beauty and wonder of the Philippines.

i wish i had the experience.. but the only place ive been was taiwan.. and that was when i was a toddler.. and i dont recall any memories of it.. i wished i had gone back or go anywhere else besides california.. i think it'll be a great experience for me to travel so i can see the world.
