  MAY 2016:   Click here to read our Philippines Retirement Reviews. OVERVIEW: I had spent 3 nights in the Palm Tree Guesthouse on Siquijor Island.

Siquijor – Philippines – Where To Stay



  APRIL 2016:   Click here to read our Philippines Retirement Reviews. OVERVIEW: I had spent 3 nights in HAROLD’S MANSION in Dumaguete, Western Visayas.
