    if you (or anybody else from BHW) are going here in RP, just start a thread and the Pinoys here in BHW would surely go out of their way to meet you up and help you out, point you to the safest places where you can have fun, etc.

    i have a day job so my evenings would be free. my weekends are reserved for my family though :)

    cities are cool if you want a fun night life. manila, makati, quezon city, cebu, davao, etc.

    if you want beaches, nature trippin, we have lots of those too.

    and yes prices are cheap as compared to western countries but comparable to other south east asian countries.

    hotels can show you the safest and best places to go to if you ask.

    i'm sure you're all familiar with "pretty women" hanging in hotel lounges looking for someone to buy them a drink. just ask the hotel bartender and they'll point you to the ones that are "available", for a price of course (if that's your idea of fun that is).

    all in all, it's fun and relaxing here. transportation can be a pain if you don't have a car but a foreigner in shorts, tshirt and sandals commuting in the trains or jeeps is not uncommon. as with anywhere else, just always guard your valuables when you're out travelling :D

    Your about to open a can of beans that could get you trolled to death buddy ... All American's aren't brainwashed!

    That's like saying all white men fuck there sisters or all black people are ghetto and carry guns. Just not true DICK!

    Your fucking stupid! Come to the USA and say that to someone and you will get the dumb ego handed to you.

    Fuck you! :D

    yes and you are brainwashed by american stereotypes to say someone MUST BE an american when he said bad things about philippines

    it's like saying to a jew "you must be a prick"

    or to a chinese "you must be a soulless cheap ass labor"

    not always true. Average people show average IQ.

    How if now I say bad things about philippines, would you also say bad things about my hometown (hint: Im not american)? It's a neverending cycle

    If five indians kill your son, hate them and not the whole india itself.

    True but you can still dislike family :) I don't hate him/she so it's cool... That just pisses me off because I get a shit load of Europeans PMing asking an American (ME) how to make money and I almost always reply. But I'm brainwashed?

    Idiots!

    BTW I have 5 VA's in the Philippines and I pay them 300usd each a month to build my wealth without me lifting a finger. There smart people over there, respect them!

    here's some photos of this country to paint a more clearer picture for your self

    Some high end priced places to stay

    [​IMG]

    Ton's of sea foods and a cheap price

    [​IMG]

    Yes there are Mega cities too [ though I dont recommend to be there all the time ]

    [​IMG]


    Lots of flooding, during the rainy months. Dont live in the prone areas and you will be safe

    [​IMG]

    Looks fun to ride, but it aint pretty once inside LOL just rent a car or taxi if you can.

    [​IMG]

    Business hubs

    [​IMG]


    If you want to live ala "hermit" style, then the mountains are a great place to start, avoid the extreme south though, you are prone to be kidnapped by extremist in those areas.

    [​IMG]

    And of course the main attraction and where most of the money is spent here --> http://www.google.com/search?gcx=w&...m=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&biw=1600&bih=795 :D

    overall its a diverse, western friendly place to be.

    Very nice pics dude, it really is a beautiful place, I like the idea of the hermit life hehe ;) but so far I've only seen the country from inside the urban sprawl of QC, I really need to get out there and explore...I want to go hiking in the mountains and down to the beaches...we have beaches back in Scotland, but they are icy cold lol.

    Tru dat! I live in Kenya, have a house in Boston and travel a lot and its amazing how the media in America has potrayed what they call "third world countries". I only have thing in my agenda before thinking of a country. "Do you have high speed internet?"

    Once that is clear, the rest is just details.

    To 229tom:

    As you probably know, BHW is a diverse forum and we welcome people
    from all over the world. Also, we are very protective of each other here.
    So before you make erroneous statements such as the one in your
    original post, you need to check the facts. Don't make guesses based
    on hearsay. Instead, ask the people who have actually been there.

    Thank You! - "Wiz"

    If you have a Filipino friend who's not a bloodsucker, $10,000 would be enough for a 5 months stay, that's if you're not really planning to go places. Add another $10,000 and you should have an enjoyable out of town trip twice a month.

    In fact, if you're that close to a Filipino, some of us would be willing to do it for free. You won't be living a suite life but a freebie is a freebie. :D

    exactly!

    anyways good 2 story houses cost only less than $500 a month here man

    to the op:

    whether its a 1st class or 3rd world country the important thing is the people that you will be with when you stay at place.

    me and my friends drink 2-3 bottles of beer every night for $3. we dont spend that much everyday but hey were always having fun

    if you could treat me 2-3 bottles of beer every night ill let you stay in my house for free LOL.

    trust me you'll have more fun if you dont stay on expensive hotels, go for just ordinary house you will be treated like a king by your friendly neighbors . Just dont get to close to people to avoid being abused.
