    Here are two photos taken when I went home to my province in Cagayan de Oro City, Northern Mindanao last December 2011.

    Camiguin Island - by the seashore ... (nope that's not me but my cousin enjoying the beach ... all to himself! See? No tourists around unlike in Boaracay. LOL!)

    Palawan would be a good place if you don't want to just sit on the beach in Boracay.

    Palawan's natural resources are more diverse and so is that of Camiguin Island in Northern Mindanao (which is still unspoilt by commercial tourism) including Bohol near Cebu. Eco-Tourism is the name of the game here in the Philippines and the locals are now hard bent on preserving the natural resources and richness of whatever remains of these places ..... specially with all the natural calamities that have happened recently.

    Amey,

    You won't find it difficult here as there are so many of your countrymen who have made the Philippines their second home (if not even consider it their main home now - for some).

    Cheers!

    Thank you Yew .... May I add that Malaysia is an equally beautiful country itself.
