I would really appreciate some advice on our itinerary (first time for any of us to the Philippines). We have just booked flights in and out of Manila for 2 weeks (last week of June and first week of July). We would like to spend some time in Manila 2-3 nights and probably a night at the end for transiting. What's the best area to stay in Manila which is walking distance to good restaurants, bars and shopping etc? There is a large, diverse group of 10 (grandparents, parents, teenagers). We don't want to travel extensively - aside from Manila, we'd be happy to travel to 2 other destinations and spend say 4 nights at each but I'm not sure where to choose. We are interested in beautiful beaches, waterfalls or other natural attractions, restaurants/nightlife, fishing, snorkelling, adventure activities - basically so that the group has the option to sightsee or relax. I would love to visit Boracay but wasn't sure what sort of weather we're likely to encounter late June, early July and I don't mind if the other destination is beach/island as well. If we can get some suggestions on our itinerary for this time of year and if anyone has accommodation suggestions at these destinations, it would be greatly appreciated. I guess our budget is mid-range (A$100 - 150 per room) and if there is accommodation with family room options, even better. Would go a little higher if something was really worth it. Thanks in advance!
