Ok, I'm caught in a dilemma...

Kumasta ka... okay, that is the the extent of my knowledge in the Philippino dialect. Well, I may know a little more, but not enough to carry on an intelligent conversation. I am a Filippino, born in Manila, but unfortunately, I left the Phils when I was 4 years old and subsequently, lost my dialect once I went to American schools.

Although I am now an "Americano", I have never forgotten my heritage, and have had the privilege of escorting my parents back to the Islands during the 90's. The last time I was there was last year when I again escorted my Mom back to her hometown in Mindanao. I have always drawn to my culture and want to experience more of it.

I have an opportunity next year to go back again as a treat to myself. I plan on going to Cebu for two weeks to "explore" and take as many photos as I can. What I would like to know, is where are some "must see" sights I should go for photos ops and just experiencing all that is Philippines? I would like to stay away from the more touristy places like Boracay and have heard that Bohol was a better alternative. So, if anyone has any recommendations (that includes any hotels), I would greatly appreciate any replies - uh, as long as it's in English.

Salamat po!
