Is it possible to sail cheaply (not on cruisers or freights unless they are cheap offers) overland / overseas to the Philippines from either Cambodia, Laos or Vietnam? Are there any ferry networks?
I've been unable to find any such transport. I'm trying to travel without flying and spending astronomical prices on ships.

You'd have to go to Sandakan, Malaysia and take the ferry to Zamboanga.
Theoretically, it is possible a yacht will need an extra hand to help them cross the South China Sea. And the most likely spot you will find a yacht heading to Manila seems to be Hong Kong. However, I just don't know how practical this option is.
Hi. Have you been to the Philippines? Cebu Pacific offers a (Philippine) peso promo, and if you find one, you have to pay 30-50 US dollars for a one-way trip. Zamboanga is located in the western part of Mindanao, one of those regions where one must be extremely cautious. It's possible to go to Saranggani Group of Islands, which is at the opposite side, but as I found out seven years ago, the water is choppy at day time. I don't know if you'll like the voyage (at such time).
