Although overlooked by the
world, the Philippines is still cheap and cheerful.
With a reputation for being
chaotic and corrupt, the Philippines has something of an image
problem. But most who make the journey to the islands in
Philippines are pleasantly surprised by their beauty and by the
friendliness of the people.
Most of the Philippines is
laidback, stable and relatively safe. The locals are an
exceptionally helpful bunch and there are fantastic reefs and
fish. On top of this, transport is cheap, the food is good,
accommodation is plentiful and (for the monolinguistic) English
is widely spoken.
