Take a boat— going to Alaska I took the Ferry, slept on deck in a bivy sack, and carted on a big heap of gear (including a Pack Cat, paddle, wetsuit, etc. etc. In 2002 we booked a freighter to New Zealand and once again hauled a big heap of inflatable boats and gear. That voyage took 2 weeks. We stayed there a whole year, so it made sense. Only part that sucked was the food: the ship's officers were Russian. (Oxtails in greasy gravy for lunch.) But it cost a bit less than an air ticket.

If you can afford a ten-day ship trip, you could probably get a couple 'yaks to the Philippines (or wherever). Worth looking into.
