It’s another episode of the Expat Answerman Video Cast today! No monologue today, I have several viewer questions that I want to address! We start out today’s show with a question from an anonymous reader! He is wondering about bringing a laptop or other electronic device to the Philippines. The difference in voltage concerns him […]
Travel in and from the Philippines
Firstly, travel inside the Philippines gives the opportunity to experience many different cultures, languages and scenery. The Philippines has regions that are so different that it is almost like visiting a different country even just going from one town to another. As a group of 7,107 islands, the cultures present in the country are multiple. You can spend a lot of time traveling the Philippines without seeing all there is to see.
The other great thing about travel is traveling from the Philippines to other countries. Within just a short flight from the Philippines you can literally visit a dozen or more different countries! Take that out to 6 hours or less of travel and you can expand from a dozen to several dozen countries that are at your doorstep! It all leads to some great travel adventures from the Philippines without the need for long trips!
Of course, if you travel from the Philippines, coming home is always a great experience!

Online shopping in the Philippines has not always been the best of experiences, but things seem […]
Alaska was a nice little adventure for me, and now that that’s over, I’m back in the Philippines. I’ve made the trip once before without any issues but this time, I can’t say the same. For this trip, I actually traveled with my younger brother. We’ve never traveled together and I’ve never traveled internationally with […]
Today was a fairly busy day for us. We had to go out and get sim cards for our phones from a carrier that works in Alaska. We did some research and found out that they have an office in Portland… Well, at least according to their website they do. We go there only to […]
Earlier this week, I wrote about What You should know about Martial Law, and I mentioned about my trip last weekend to General Santos City. General Santos is between 2 1/2 to 4 hours travel from Davao. That is a big spread, but the difference depends on the level of traffic, the driving of the […]
