The next stops on the old island hopping campaign are Guam and the Philippines (Manila and Olongapo/Subic Bay) and I'd like to know if anyone has any tiki bars they'd recommend visiting. So far I've had a 'mai tai' in a hotel bar and while it was no real mai tai the Tanduay rhum they used was amazing.

Very cool, I want to go there someday too. No idea about bars around there but this thread might help you somehow.

So far the only tikis I've found where in Ocean Park Manila and a few small ones for sale in a gift shop on Corregidor Island. In Baguio I picked up an Igorot mask that looks pretty tiki. No tiki bars yet though.

Sweet! Hey, I've always kinda been confused about Guam... Was that island(s) inhabited by Polynesians among others?

The islanders here are Chamorro though there's also plenty of Filipinos here too. Guam is part of the Micronesian Islands.

I found a bar last week in Lapu Lapu on Mactan Island called the Jungle bar that has Tikis and a Hawaiian dance show (mainly performed by lady boys), drinks aren't great but it is abit of fun.
