So, the plan is a month of romping around PI. Leaving in January. Now, I haven't been there in 21 years!! I've been hearing from family members that people are dropping like flies with mosquito related illnesses--namely the West Nile virus and/or Malaria.

Questions are:

1. Do I need to get extra vaccination shots? If so, which ones? (My main destinations are Ilocos and other provinces with stops to Manila/Makati).

2. Know of any connections to "cheap" flights roundtrip? Doesn't have to be PAL but I've been told it's easier to go through customs if flying via PAL.

please reply.
