Overland / Overseas to the Philippines

Posted by jamesdueeast on 20/2/2013 at 22:34

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.
