Since 2012 I’ve been traveling through various islands of the Philippines as a full-time Expat and spent 1999 living in Vietnam.
Share with me my ongoing adventures of life in the Philippines. Hopefully you find my observations helpful in your own adventures.
We are in San Jose de Buenavista Antique
Enjoy your travels Henry and stay safe!
I am amused that you consider Manila to be in the North. Well, I suppose it is compared with Mindanao, however the REAL North is the Cagayan Valley or Ilocos Norte.
Sure, occasional typhoons here, but I think just as many as the Visayas have. The Northern Beaches of Luzon are amazing and the weather not quite as hot as the South. Anyway, I shouldn’t talk it up too much, since I love to keep the secrets to myself! 😉
I’m shocked you went to Davao and didn’t come back to Cebu city.
Cebu has just about everything Philippines has to offer eg international airport, major ferry terminal, sm/Ayala malls, great exploring in the province….Also centrally located in the county.
At some point, I assume you will be back.
My opinion, Cebu City/ Cebu province is very hard to beat
Reekay, how long have you been back in the Philippines?
I haven’t heard a lot about violence, murder, and kidnapping in Mindanao lately.
I prefer Davao City myself. We have lived in Cebu for a short time, Bohol for a year and here in Davao for a little over 3 years. Ne is from Bohol but she has lived here for 28 years and knows it like the back of her hand which is nice. When that last typhoon hit Cebu & the upper Visayas. It sprinkled here. We get the earth though but not the Typhoons. No place in the world is perfectly safe.
La Union has rarely seen typhoons. I personally prefer Baguio. The food choices, University life, most creative city in the Phillipines, beauty, lake, and weather can’t be beat
could you do a vlog, for a 1st time traveller to the Phil’s, single guy, what are some cities to explore, maybe a top 3?
We are looking at properties near Negros Occidental. Maybe 2-3 hours from central of Negros since that is where Angeles’ family is living.
What does that have to do with scammers?
I am talking with a lovely lady near Tagoloan east of Cagayan de Oro on the north coast of Mindanao. Do you know that area? Safety concerns?
I have previously been to Cebu City,, driven around Cebu Island, Oslob, Manila up to La Union and to Poerto Princessa in Palawan.
Good to have you back with Vi exploring Philippines.
