    Hey rayee, I'm going to be heading to the Philippines from the 17th to the 30th of December, so almost 2 weeks. Trying to put together an itinerary now, which will almost likely include Boracay and possibly some surfing in Siargao. Send me a private msg, if interested. cheers.

    Just booked my tickets and I will be going from 6th - 23rd. Borocay is not on my list. I decided to head to Palawan instead because it's cheaper for me. 21st I will be in Manila. Looks like we dont have the same itinery

    It's a nice quiet beach and cheaper. Borocay is to PARTY and I don't like to party because I dont feel safe in Philippines

    I found Boracay to be pretty safe... never had a problem in PI. But regardless, danger can happen anywhere.

    Altmtl, any thoughts on safety? is the philippines less safe than any of thailand, vietnam, or cambodia?

    mynameisjay,

    There is a another thread about safety in the Philippines. The negative stereotype of the Philippines is exaggerated. It is no more dangerous than any of the other countries you mention.
