    "I was planning a beach vacation in the Phillipines, and was looking for recommendations for the best beach on travel sites, and a lot of them mentioned El Nido, on Palawan Island. Accommodations there were reasonably priced, and easy to find, so I booked a stay there. I found it to be okay, no better, no worse. The beach was pretty, and clean, but the prices of drinks and stuff were outrageous, dining choices were limited, and the locals weren't very friendly. I'm sure there are better Philippine beaches than this one. "

    "San Juan La Union is home to one of the closest surfing spots in Manila where the waves could get as big as 6ft during surf season. The beach is ideal for both swimming(when it's not surf season), and of course, for surfing during the months of June-September"

    "Good travel tips, but feels a bit outdated. The publish date is about 5 years old and some of the locations suggested might not be relevant anymore. There is some general info and as long as the attraction is current and relevant it might still be there. There are probably better choices out there, although this one is rated well enough to consider along with other choices out there. "

    "The Lonely Planet Philippines Travel Guide is another great book in this series. If you want to visit the Philippines, this is one of the best guides you can get. It has great advice on what to do and what to avoid to make your trip a great one. It could use more maps and photos, but apart from that, it is pretty good."
