So I have strung together four tips on what to carry out.
Be organized - create a plan for the whole holiday.
Talk about with your fiancee the locations you wanted to reveal to him.
In my part I looked for the accommodation myself and made the booking.
You will not need to pay in advance, just give them your fiancees name, dates and which kind of room you wanted to reserve.
If its in Manila I prefer to reside in Makati so that its nearer to the major shopping mall, such as Ayala Centre, and also not too far from the airport.
Even he can book his reservation online but you can not always rely on what it shows in on internet.
Of course you identify your country more than he will, so you can always provide your suggestions.
During my fiancees first visit here, I took him to the Baguio City, The Pagsanjan Falls and Rizal House in Laguna and of course we stay most of the time here in my hometown, Manila.
We spent the 1st and the remaining two days here in Manila so that we enjoy time to be with my family and make sure that he will not miss his flight.
Be considerate - How many hours will you going to spend with him or will you be there with him all through the entire holiday? Make sure that you are free during his holiday.
How would you envisage yourself flying over 12 hours or more and just find out that the person you want to see or be with is having extra commitments or have other appointment? Be considerate, your man has clearly been on a long journey and spent a fortune to come to meet you, consequently your job is to give him your quality time and make his visit the most memorable one.
Decide how much time you require to remain in the hotel, I mean your fiancee of course will be very excited to see more of the country and not just stay inside the hotel all day, except when the weather is awful but at least you must have another option ready in case there is a tropical storm and you cant go somewhere.
When it is raining hard or storm it is best go to the Bowling Alley in SM Malls.
Be imaginative - Have a plan where to go, which place you are going to show him, ask him his interests, historical, beach, nature and etc.
Remember to get a map or travel guide, you can purchase one from the National bookstore.
Educate yourself about the key tourist attractions of the Philippines so that you do not seem like a stranger in your own country.
Last July, we went to the surfing vicinity in La Union, The Heritage Village in Vigan Ilocos Sur, Cebu City and a few of the days in Manila.
We did it all in just eight days.
It was laborious but we had a fantastic time together.
By the way, if you want adventures I advise you go to The Pagsanjan Falls.
It costs around 5000 pesos to rent the craft.
Two boatmen will push you through the powerful river to the waterfalls.
It was fantastic and great fun.
Be friendly - It is extremely essential to know his food preference so that you will have your research which restaurant to go off to.
Ask his favourite foods, if he likes hot, sweets and etc.
If he wishes to taste our pinoy specialty foods, you had best go to the Buffet Dinner in Glorietta Mall, its a restaurant that serves western, Japanese and Filipino buffet dinner which cost nearly 500 pesos per person, or go to Barrio Fiesta Restaurants and take pleasure in the Filipino folk songs with the singing cooks and waitress.
Unless you just wanted to feed him hamburgers and fried chicken each day, no problem just go to Mc Donalds or Jollibee which I do not recommend because for me I rather let him experience our own special dishes, such as sinigang, kare kare, pinakbet, lechon, etc.
But remember, he is your guest do not make him to eat the foodstuff he does not wish to eat.
I've heard that a large amount westerner prefers to have fish fillet than fish with the head remaining on it.
Some think that Krispy pata is disgusting, and also the dried fish and shrimp paste.
In Baguio City we love to dine in The Sizzling Restaurant along the Session Road, they serve Sizzling Boneless Bangus.
I trust you have found these tips valuable, and wish you luck in your future relationship.
