Thanks in advance for advice.
My first choice would be Langkawi ... It's easy, cheap
and Hong Kong
are other popular options nearby.
Foreigners cannot register boats in the Philippines, as far as I have been able to find out.
You'd also need to research
what rules might exist in Australia
for their own citizens taking boats there... I'd imagine there are tax issues. But that's perhaps a concern for a future time.
