What to do in 40 days?

Help! Im going to the phil for approximately 40 days. And I want to enjoy it and go to places!

Where would you recommend that I go?
May limitations, Im on a tight budget and I can only go to places in region 4---batangas, cavite laguna, etc. basta near manila. o kahit san basta not that far and expensive.

San ba maganda pumunta na may magandang beach, or mountains..anything about nature.

pls help!

    40 days? Have somebody take you around. Do you want beaches ba? You may want to visit the thread about nice beaches in Batangas. You may also want to go to Tagaytay - especially now that it's summer. There's a thread about what to do and where to go there.

    If you're into amusement parks, Enchated Kingdom is the only place I can recommend. If you want to experience Old Manila - and trade fairs/shows, maybe a trip to Intramuros would do you good. I noticed that your location said Marikina (I'm supposing that this is where you'll be staying) - maybe you'd want to visit the Riverbanks? Although I haven't been there in a long time. I heard it's a nice place to walk around in.

    There's this place north of Manila - it's actually in Quezon, but it's in the northern part of the province. I visited Real, Quezon with my family on my birthday - for a picnic and a day in the beach, without too many people. You can rent huts for Php300 and you can have your food cooked (buy from the talipapa - fresh catch pa!). I think my total bill was Php1,800 - for a very hearty meal of sinigang na sugpo, inihaw na tangigue, inihaw na pusit plus the hut we rented.

    I suggest that you go to bohol, puerto galera, palawan and boracay...that is if you love beaches and water activity.....

    you can also go to sagada for trekking.....

    actually, it depends upon what kind of activity you are interested in....
