Where to go next????
« on: October 11, 2009, 10:15:16 PM »
Currently my plan is to stop in Bangkok or Pattaya for Turkey Day then back to the states for training and leave.  I am planning to be in the Philippines for Xmas for about a week.  I would like to enjoy some relaxation on a nice beach, maybe play golf, and have some fine adult entertainment.  I just visited Manila and it was to busy, dirty, crowded for this trip.  I am open to suggestions, I haven\'t bought any tickets yet. 

Just for clarification, I will traveling from the US and don\'t want to spend all my vacation flying.  I would like to have a relaxing time and meet some great people....maybe even a young beautiful lady:) 

Thanks in advance for your suggestions ;D

Try Angeles City.  It\'s closer to the beaches of Subic and has plenty of \"adult entertainment\" for a week\'s stay. 

Good luck!

I agree, you can\'t go wrong with Angeles City.
Contact Margarita Station, they have a great car service that will pick you up at the airport and take you to your Hotel in AC.
For a real treat, contact ABC Hotel and hire their Helicopter, $250 and no Manila Traffic!

Word of warning.... Angeles City can be very addictive to single males, some have been known to go back to they\'re homes and sell everything they have, just to get back to AC.

It\'s truly one of those places that everyone should see at least once in their life.

Thanks guys!!  A group of us guys actually wanted to visit AC when went to Manila, but they put a bunch of restrictions on our liberty becuase it had been so long since we pulled into the PI. 

I will consider AC, but I think Cebu or down south may be where I end up becuase I only have a few trips over the next couple of years to figure out my retirement starting point.  I know I dont want to retire in Manila and I doubt I could handle AC for more than a short time.

Besides, I think we are going back next year and I may not listen to there BS liberty policies and live it up in AC:)  I already checked out the ABC hotel..... ;D

We live in Cebu City part of the year and it is a happening place, and a man would have to be wearing a bag over his head to not meet women in the major malls such as SM or Ayala and also all over the city. Heck, they try to pick me up when I am arm and arm with my wife and I am 61.  ;D What an ego booster.  ;)

 There are also many bars all along the Mango area and right near the Osmena Circle area near the Robinsons mall where single guys can kick back and have fun. Just one word of caution, a lot of the ladies walking the Mango area are actually girlyboys, so if they are dressed really sexy and provocative then they are most likely boys because most ladies are conservative, and the easy way to find out for sure is to do the elbow test, if the arm can bend back past straight then it is a girl and if it cannot then move on to the next one or ten.  :D

hehe,.. had to laugh at the \"elbow\" test thing !!
If I was single I\'d probably get more advanced and do my own \"elbow\" test,... just shuffle the letters around !!

That may sometimes be hard to do right out in the street  ;D ;) but the elbow can be discretely done without the lady even realizing you were checking. To tell you the truth, I have seen some that I might have a hard time telling that they were men without one test of the other.

I always thought the \"Adams Apple\" test was used to determine the true gender?

You might want to read here  http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam\'s_apple   which will no doubt change your mind.  The elbow is fool proof as long as the women is not very overweight.

Mr Lee,

Thanks for the input on Cebu.  As much as I am going to relax and have a good time, I am also going to see the area I might retire in.  I dont need to meet a bunch of girls or go to clubs with bar girls every night.  I would be fine with a nice young lady and just some relaxation time. 

Chances are, I will adventure out of the city and stay on a beach the majority of my week there.  Any recommendations on nice beach resorts in that area.  I have seen beautiful pictures with the crystal blue water and white sands....now thats relaxation!!!!

PS...I never heard of the elbow test but it definitely makes sense and I was rolling when I read comments.  As a world traveling Sailor of 22 years I can spot the girly boys pretty quickly. 

I love this forum...you guys are great. ;)

You might try Moalboal http://www.moalboal-travel-guide.com/ or hope a boat over to Bohol http://www.bohol-philippines.com/bohol-beach.html or both.

I have a niece who works on Balicasa Island near Panglao and she tells me it is beautiful but I have not been there yet. http://www.divephil.com/bohol/balicasa/

Still considering Cebu, the province not the city, you might want to consider Malapascua Island.  Here is what Lonely Planet says;

Then there\'s Santa Fe, Bantayan Island.  This is from Wikipedia;
