Philippines 2019 for new expats

Recommended Posts

Thanks for sharing. Interesting for those leaving from CM. How much is one year in advance compared to flexible extensions ( 30 days, 59 days, 6 months etc.)?
Cebu rooms I saw are 600 EUR for a nice condo which is half price in CM 10k THB / 300 EUR.
Visa in TH for me yearly around 1600 EUR , still more expensive in PH overall cause of expensive room, electricity and food.

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.

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.

From personal experiences i would have to admit that i find Thais slightly more reliable than Phillipinos.

I noticed more lying going on there than here.

If that is even possible..!!🤣

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?

That’s correct and  likely because Pinoys can better English so then they can better lie too.

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.
