As I noted in my column yesterday, the tourism related websites of the Government of the Philippines are, unfortunately, in a mess. There are simply too many such websites, and each of them seems to be pulling potential tourists in a different direction. In addition to that, much of the information listed on these sites […]
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!

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 […]
When we think about the Philippines, luxury is not usually the first thing that comes to mine, is it? Most of us think about a simpler life, cheaper living, less stress and such. Certainly these things are all true, but luxury can be part of the overall lifestyle in the Philippines too! Since moving here […]
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 […]
