wow..hope we see your book soon...

well.. for me, I had a book entitled 1000 Places to See Before You Die which is a compilation of 1000 must-see destinations around the world.. and in it, 3 Philippine destinations are included...

1. Banaue Rice Terraces - well it was dubbed as the 8th Wonder of the World
2. Taal Volcano - A lake within a volcano within a lake within an island.. a unique site
3. Amanpulo, Pamalican Island - a private isle in the Sulu Sea..

other than... I guess you can add the Old Houses of Vigan, and yeah the Heritage site in Batanes.. and maybe Mayon Volcano that used to be an almost perfect cone

beaches - El Nido, Amanpulo, Pagudpod, Bohol, Boracay, Puerto Galera, Camiguin
reefs - Tubbataha in Sulu Sea, Puerto Galera Reefs (forgot the name)
caves - Puerto Princesa Underwater River (longest in the world), Paniki Caves in Bulacan
monuments - Rizal Monument, Quezon Monument, Bonifacio Monument
cities - Cebu, Baguio, Makati

I've a few beaches, since I helped a friend of mine B de V. write Philippine vacations. We took her all over Easter Southern Mindanao. Some really great beaches we saw include
Glan in Sarangani Bay , Gen San Area, really truly fine,
Pujada Island in Mati, Davao Oriental,
Dapa, Siargao Surigao

She also said the closest beach in quality to Boracay was in Catanduanes.
