Hoping someone out there has cycle toured the Phillipines lately. I've just purchased my Thorn Raven (to be picked up when i go to the UK in a few months) and am planning a tour of a few months in SE Asia in January and February. Living in Darwin, Northern Australia my choices are vast with numerous budget airlines operating in the area.
After recently having a short vacation in the Phillipines I am thinking it would be a good place to tour - my original plan was Vietnam which would be my fourth visit there - but i just found the Filippino people very hospitable and the fact that English is so widely spoken (with a great accent i may add) i'm leaning in this direction.
Any hints, suggestions, links etc etc for helping my research would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers and beers
I have no direct information, but you may get more responses if you ask in a forum where people that do cycle touring hang out... I would try the Touring forum. I know I have seen discussions of international touring there.
The appropriate regional forum may also give you a few insights too, but I don't know how much would be helpful from a touring perspective.
