  • Anyone been to the Philippines?

    I'm heading over for work next week. Should I be mindful of anything in particular?
    I've taken note of the warnings on the DFAT website and I do my best to be a safety smart traveller.
    I'll only be there for 10 days and I believe I'll have escorts the whole time.

    cheers

    I was there in 1975. Really enjoyed it for the month I was there. Really friendly, hospitable people. Not sure I can give you any useful up-to-date info sadly.

      What particular part are you going? I have been to Manila a few times, Cebu, Davao etc. If you are going to Manila, you should be right, for the most part the people are nice (especially when they realise that you are not American). They are fervent Catholics and are quite friendly. Normal precautions apply, I got my pocket picked the last time I was there.

      The southern parts of the Philippines are a bit touch and go, with religious seperatists etc. Compared to other south-east asian countries, the Phillippines are a bit like the wild west, life is cheap etc. If you follow the DFAT advice,have a local guide, and use caution, you should have a great time.

      Good luck. Make sure you have really good travel insurance and your family know where you are.

        Heading to Mindanao. Apparently the separatists are further south. It's a mine site and run by Japanese so I'm confident they have their bases covered. Jap company reps will be travelling with me so if they are ok, I should be.

        I imagine it might be like Indo. I was concerned before I went there but once I got there I loved the place and the people.
