Needing to work in Philppines means I need to escape. We are "sussing out" Bangkok this week, but are not wedded to it.
Looking for any suggestions I might not have thought of!
Key Criteria include:
* proximity to Manila and ability to fly there (rules out Taiwan)
* have reasonable priced accomodation for short term rentals
* decent selection of western food
* has hills and ability to hike in them (or some other form of fun outdoor recreational activity that burns calories)
At the moment we have a short list of BKK, KL and Penang. None of which tick all the boxes. Looking for that illusive imaginary place I have not yet thought of.....!
