As Amar suggests, you could post questions in the Philippines sub-forum. They may be privy to some (their) "desi" information that I'm not aware of.

I haven't been to Mount Mayon or the Chocolate Hills. My father-in-law retired from ADB before I had the opportunity to visit those places. The usual places of interest are: Baguio, Boracay Island (my personal favorite), Clark (former US air base), Cebu, Corregidor Island, Pagsanjan Falls, Puerto Galera, Subic Bay (former US naval base), Tagaytay.

Manila is a very large city known as Metro Manila that actually is comprised of many municipalities (cities). The most expensive gated communities are in Makati City, which is also the business/commercial capital of the country and is part of Metro Manila. Manila is probably comparable to Mumbai in that the city is of extremes, super rich neighborhoods on one spectrum with shanty towns on the other. The metro area is like any western (American) city.

If you pm me with your contact information I could probably hook you up with some people over there, who could probably take you around or at least provide tips on the ground. When are you planning to visit?
