There’s so many things to do in the Philippines — wakeboard, waterskii, hit the beach, rock climb, cliff dive, hike… and all the usual city stuff like party and enjoying the food.
I can’t really say that my country is at all perfect. In fact, I hate the rainy months so I don’t recommend tourists to visit between July to October. But it’s those typhoons that make the land rich and the beaches become blue, so we needed that.
In terms of the famous ‘women,’ my country isn’t perfect in that, but every country has a red-light district where it’s even legalized. And I feel terrible for men who patronize these prostitutes without even looking in their eyes to see that they don’t like this life. And this goes for all of these exploited women because I’ve seen them in Bangkok, where prostitution is legalized unlike here, and I felt sympathy for them instead of thinking them as a tourist attraction.
Finally, a lot of people in my country know English and are very kind to foreigners. Call it whatever you want but at least as a tourist, you get to have a huge priority for Filipinos here and you don’t have to use any kind of sign language just to get your point across.
Filipinos know English. And they’re exceptional at it. They know better than those who diss their country and spell the word “scenary” (sic).
Give it a chance. It’s very cheap to come here, you know. For foreigners, a few dollars can get you the best looking beach in the planet better than the dollars required in the French Riviera. What have you got to lose?
