i'm thinking of booking flights from hong kong to the philippenes for 5-7 days in july.
after researching flights it seems Clark is too far away from beaches and a 'chilled out' alternative to hong kong...so ive found a flight direct to mactan-cebu.
googling mactan comes up with some lovely white sand, tranquil beaches, just what i'm looking for!
with this in mind, where would anyone suggest I stay- area as opposed hotels, or is it best to stay one night here, one night there? or have a base in one place and do day trips? i'm really looking for laid back beach life for a few days, a bit snorkelling, as well as lovely food and trips to do a little sightseeing too!
please help me! thanks :)
