Our two weeks of travel in the Philippines have been varied and fantastic! Our visit included sharing the underwater world of Balicasag with giant turtles and a tornado of jack fish as well as swimming with five school bus size Whale Sharks in Oslob, Cebu! We also saw the highlights of international design with Kenneth Cobonpue and the UNESCO sites of the Chocolate Hills and Underground River. I cannot wait to share all the photos and video especially of the fine hotels of Manila like Resorts World and Hotel H20 as well as Be Resort and Marco Polo in Cebu and Hotel Centro and Acacia Tree Garden Hotel in Puerto Princessa. Ricky of Cebu Holiday Tours and Rissa, the author of The Philippines: 100 Travel Tips, have been incredible guides and friends.
