Hong Kong, Coron, el nido, manila and Seoul
 
Hi everyone,

I am going with a couple friends in mid November. We are starting in Hong Kong for three nights then to Coron for 3 nights, El nido for 3 nights, Manila for 1 night and then Seoul for 2 nights. We are pretty much up for anything and are foodies. Any recommendations would be awesome!

thanks

My recommendation: SLOW DOWN!
Seoul alone easily merits several days, if not a week.

Hong Kong + Manila Suggestions
 
Hi! For Manila, Iíd recommend going to Binondo/Chinatown for a food trip during the day then maybe hitting up the Poblacion area in Makati at night. If youíll reach the last Friday of the month, Mess Hall has a night event that happens only once a month, good food and drinks too! For HK, the tsim sha tsui and central areas are fun to explore. You can also join the LKF pub crawl every thursday, itís good fun!

Sorry but that is a silly (meant in the nicest possible way ;) ) itinerary.

Are you flying in long haul? If so you will have:

2 days in HK and likely jet lagged there.
2 days in Coron
2 days in El Nido
A couple of free hours in Manilla
1 day in Seoul

That is a LOT of travel/hassle/expense for not much time anywhere.

Even IF you aren't flying in long distance -- most of the times will be the same -- just no jet lag to deal with.
