Air-con rooms near the beach in the Subic area can be had for 300-400peso/night (4-6kpeso/month).

If you can't find places in PI comparable to prices in Thailand, you've got 'mug' written on yer forehead.

 

Overstay Road Vloger is staying their now and has a few recent videos of Barretto and walk around.

Over the next weeks I will write about Philippines, how it is to live here as a former Thai expat.   With the never ending visa changes in Thailand, I hope this will be helpful now for some

I don't think he started this thread to attract hecklers. There is a bigger world than only Thailand, or indeed Asean.

Is the OP still in Bohol?

Maybe the wifi is not so good there?

Connectivity, in general, is not very good + expensive there.....

Yes but they are working on improving the connection there as we speak.

I have been in Bohol before and very much liked it then but that was 10 years ago.

stunning beaches clean air etc.

I just spent 6 days in Manila. I stayed near the Baywalk so I had no problem with air quality. Streets were pretty clean too. Leaving the airport it took an hour to get a taxi at 7PM. Traffic is pretty bad. I was able to walk to Baywalk mornings. Lots of walkers and cyclists. Friendly people. In the evening lots of people went to the bay to hang out and watch the sunset. I had several restaurants nearby, Aristocrat chicken, Shakeys pizza. Lots of 7-11s around, and Mini Shops. I could also walk to Robinsons Mall, a huge place that even had a Dennys, I got a good salad there. Also a cinema and ice skating rink inside.

 

That looks and sounds pretty nice....

 

--How long did it take you to get from the airport to your hotel...once you got a taxi?

 

--And, how much were the hotel rates going for in the area you stayed, and what did you get for the price paid?

To hotel about 1 hour. Hotel was about $33 plus tax. Name is D Circle. Very good buffet breakfast that changed each day, free mini bar with water, Cokes, snacks, lots of English TV channels. Going to the airport I took the Skyway for 35 pesos.

I assume everyone is lying to me, especially the woman in my bed.

It's got to the point where it doesn't matter, as I'm not listening to what they're saying.

 

Is people lying really such a big deal? I've worked out ways to get around it.

When I agree to meet someone, it's only ever in a place where I can have fun on my own, or with people already there.

I only really interact with my former wife, gf and the kids, that limits a lot of the madness as I know everything the gf and wife say are a lie.

lying doesnt really matter unless it inconveniences you, but liars are generally shallow and disadvantaged so worth avoiding if possible
