Yes it is because the chance of you getting kidnapped or held as a hostage is bout 3% out of 100%. Just stay safe, don’t wear anything that attractive (so that men will not… you know) and be safe. The malls in the cities are fine to go to, stay at a hotel, and if you will, try to go and see what San Luis, Batangas is like. I know it’s beautiful there, my mom’s side of the family lives there. My great-great grandmother does too. Don’t go alone anywhere, stay with your friends. In Batangas, there are beaches, and a wonderful community pool. Well you have to pay to go to the pool, since it’s part of a hotel. You don’t have to stay at the hotel to go swimming there. In Mandaluying, Metromanila, go to the Mall of Asia. That is probably the biggest mall ever in Asia, so definitely go there is you love shopping! It’s right across from Manila Bay. On the bridge over to Manila bay, crossing, it’s very windy sometimes, like when my cousin and I went, all our hair was on our face! It can be windy, but sometimes it’s not, depending on the weather. If you go to Manila Bay, some water MIGHT splash you. The food is great.
I went in July a couple of years ago. It was ok with the weather and all. But the thing is, depending on where you live, there are a lot of floods. Where I was staying, ***** Oriental, did see much rain, but in the North I heart about a lot of floods. But if you still want to go, it’s pretty nice. Just don’t bring your camera out even if it’s sunny. My uncle went out and it just started raining. Lots of random raining in the Philippines, so be careful.

Post a comment –>. By Anna Valmero. QUEZON, PALAWAN – From a community devastated by the effects of rampant illegal fishing, this idyllic town now offers stories resonating hope for local fisher folks and conservationists. Palawan‘s coast hosts … Quezon and five other municipalities—Taytay, Balabac, Coron, Magsaysay and San Vicente – serve as both harvest area and transfer points for live reef fish trade. Groupers account for a huge chunk of the live reef fish …
I’m traveling to the Philippines this coming winter for a one month stay. I’ll be staying with my fiance who lives there. In addition to the grocery and everyday cost of supplies, we’ll probably do some traveling to the different islands, stay in hotels, and dine out several times. I’m also planning on checking out the shops and bringing back some souvenirs. How much should I be prepare to bring?

- GLABS LODGE: At the stopover of Roro Bus in Brooke’s Point we were asking around on where we could stay for the night when one of the staff in the cafeteria told us that the establishment beside was in fact a lodging. We went there, asked for the price of their fan room (300 pesos/room/night) and decided to stay there for the night as the room was okay with our standards.
It was only the next morning that we found out the name of the lodge, Glabs Lodge. They had a sari-sari store, a restaurant and a computer shop inside the establishment. There are only 2 problems that we had with the lodge, (1) it was noisy outside the room and (2) the water from the faucet seems to have strong water pressure but it takes time to fill up the bucket.
Boracay Island – arguably the world’s best beach with its warm blue waters, fine talcum like white sand and a palm-fringed 4 kilometer beach is still the Philippines’ favorite vacation hideaway… The world famous island is located in the province of Aklan which is 345 kms. south of Manila. It is accessible by air either from Manila or Cebu. Two Airports serves as the gateway to the island- Kalibo and Caticlan.

I’ld like to take my children on vacation this May. They’re 5 years old. Where is the place you recommend to bring them? Can you recommend the hotel, which is near by the place, and shopping center (I’ll bring their mommy too, you know what a lady wanna do…)
Hi, my sister and I are planning to go on a vacation to either boracay or palawan. I want to have an idea of how much we should save. Were going in about 2 years. I know its far in the future, but we really want to prepare and make it the best vacation ever. I’m going to be paying for myself and my 2 friends and my sister is going to be paying for herself and her 2 friends.(They already live in the Philippines.) So could you guys give us some suggestions?
So we want to go somewhere that has nice hotel rooms, but it doesn’t have to be a 5 star hotel. We just want it to have a comfy bed, fridge, tv, air conditioned, and a pool. Doesn’t have to have room service, but should have restaurants in the hotel or around it. Oh and the hotel should be walking distance to the beach.
We want a place that has a lot of sight seeing. Some place that we can go scuba diving, banana boat riding, kayaking, boat rides, island hopping, underground rivers. Things like that, doesn’t have to have all of it, but the first three I listed is a must. Were not much for bars and drinking. ( Well be three 21 year olds and three 19 year olds.) Although we would like to see some people. ( Hot guys! Haha!)
Sooo… Knowing all that info. Here are my questions.
1. What place would be ideal for us? Puerto Princesa, dos palmas, el nido, honda bay, boracay, etc…?
2. How much would a hotel like what I described cost for a week?
3. Do you have any suggestions for a hotel like that?
4. How much would water activities cost per person?
5. How much do you think 7 days of hotel+food+activities cost for 7 people?
6. Do you have any suggestions of other places I didn’t say?
7. Could you maybe make a little itinerary for me? (Thank you so much!)
8. Do you think its will be safe for 6 girls to go alone?
9. Around how much will 6 plane tickets from manila to where ever you suggest cost?
I cant think of any other questions right now. So thank you so much if you answer this question.
BTW, do you think renting a house for a week will cost less instead of going to a hotel? Do you know of any places that you could rent a house or cabin (like in dos palmas)? How much is something like that anyway? It should still have most of the activities and things I mentioned earlier.
Oh and don’t include the plane ticket from CA to the philippines in your estimate of how much we would spend. Thanks a million!:D
