I will be traveling to the Philippines , March 28-April 15. This gives me around 17 days. I am interested in seeing the rice terraces, couple of the country's finest beaches, a night or two in Manila for nightlife, and if time permits snorkeling with the whale sharks or couple days of diving. From what I've gathered and I know 17 days to see a country is nothing, but some of the must sees for a short trip such as this are (excluding manila):

1. Boracay
2. Bohol
3. Palawan
4. Sagada/Banaue/Batad
5. Donsol (Do I have time/is it conducive to my route?)

Could anyone advise me on number of days I should spend in each and also what the most efficient route would be and how/airlines/flights? Since I am limited in time is it necessary to visit all Sagada/Banaue/Batad? Is Cebu worth spending a couple days in or is Bohol preferred and Cebu just a stopover place? Also please advise where to go in Palawan. Did my list include the nicest beaches. Really appreciate any help. Thanks again
