If you are into SCUBA DIVING, Anilao, BAtangas is the place to be. Also try APO reef which is discovered to have more species of marine organisms than the Great Barrier Reef.
There are alot of interesting places in the Philippines, sadly, most of the travellers head to other SEA countries specifically Thailand. It may not be as rich as Singapore, but it surely gives another taste of the South East. Don't forget the OLD Spanish Churches that can be seen in many islands.
Try Cebu City, the oldest city of the Philippines. You can communicate there very well. People speak English well.

Sounds like you are trying to see it all rather than really seeing.
Have you really seen all there is to see in Thailand?
Have you seen the Royal project at Doi Internon? or the Shadow puppet museum in Kanchanaburi?
Or Railay beach near Krabi? How about Ko Sok NP? Or PoohPahMan NP in northeastern Thailand.
There are a lot of incredible places in Thailand that most who live here never see.
But, if you only care about the most popular or the one's that are found on the covers of the Travel magazines, then go to Similan islands, or Bali, or Angkor Wat.
Personally i find that if a place gets the "must see" tag, i stay away and look for the little out of the way places.
Just try sometime throwing away the tour book and meeting people the old fashioned way "talking to the locals" You may find that there's a lot more to a place than the best restaurant or best hotel.
Not meaning to come down on you here but there are many ways to travel. I have been living in Thailand for 8 years now. Have seen more than most. haven't touched on so much of it yet.
