I am posting to get recommendations for a housing recon trip itinerary. It would be beneficial to address the following issues: (1) which cities to visit on this housing recon trip, and what to check out while there. (2) whether to attempt to arrange everything in advance, or to "fix" only the main flight arrival and departures dates and improvise for the rest; and (3) how much travel to conduct within the recon trip, and how much travel should wait until the big move to the P.I. is complete before continuing the search. At this point I regard the purpose of trip to be to pick a city to begin my retirement in, after which I expect to explore the P.I. Further, I expect to select a housing type, rather than place deposit on a specific property, and hopefully to gain an understanding of the lifestyles available in different regions. Regarding (2) above, I find that the trip planning is hard enough without trying to figure out exactly how many days I'll need in each of Cebu, Dumaguete, Puerto Princesa etc. What I don't know is how easy or difficult it is to make these arrangements on short notice once I'm in the P.I. Thanks for any input the board can provide.
My wife and I will be sending a nephew to UP Cebu beginning in June. We would like for him to live as near the campus as possible. I thought that perhaps some of you might have sent children to UP or have sponsored relatives there or were just familiar with the area. I am a retired teacher with a relatively nice pension, but not one of those six figure types you read about in some articles. So price wise we don't want the nephew to live in poverty but neither can we afford a palace Thanks in advance for your help.
