OK, we’ve been traveling around the Philippines looking at different Cities around the country, and trying to which one might be best as a place to live! Well, today, let’s go way down South to Zamboanga City. I know, I know… the first thing that most foreigners think of when it comes to Zamboanga City […]
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!

Once again, today we will look at another City where expats might want to consider settling down! Today’s Overview is of Iligan City, and I was helped out by my friend, Marc de Piolenc. Marc is a dual French/US Citizen, and I’ve known him since the early ’90s online, and in person for nearly 10 […]
We looked at Cagayan de Oro City through AmericanLola’s eyes a while back, but as we can all appreciate, a new set of eyes can bring a different perspective. With that in mind, let’s have a second look at CdO, this time through the eyes of Mike Farrell. Mike has been living in Cagayan de […]
Today let’s head up north and look at Naga City, in Bicol. Anybody who has been around the Philippines much has heard of “Bicol Express,” which is a super spicy cuisine that reigns from Bicol (of course!), this is about the only part of the Philippines that specializes in spicy food! But, we are not […]
Today’s City Overview is of Cebu City. For many years, Cebu City has been a favorite destination for expats wanting to live in the Philippines. These days, it is perhaps a little less in favor, due to it’s rapid growth. Growth can bring new problems (overcrowding, pollution, traffic, etc) to a City, and a lot […]
