Autumn is backpacker time in South-East Asia, when the rains are ebbing out. The Philippines are fashionable amongst backpackers – and we understand why: thousands of islands, with lovely beaches to explore and money goes really far here.
There are, however, troubles in some areas of the country and the Foreign Office (on their website) is advising against travelling to the island of Mindinao and the Sulu archipelago. Be aware of the risks too of travelling by overcrowded ferries in windy weather!
