    • Medical/Health Insurance Question

      Manila 18 hours ago

      To the Expats and foreign students who live in the Philippines, I am researching what health/medical insurance company to sign up with, preferably US based, that will provide good and reliable coverage while a person is living in the Philippines. It appears there are quite a few companies out there. One I found that seems to have comprehensive coverage is GeoBlue. Anyone have any experience with GeoBlue? Any other companies that you had good (or bad) experience with? Thanks.

      Hello,

      I would like to inquire for directions going to Luna, La Union from Cubao, QC if I'll take public transportation. I have inquired to Partas earlier and there is no direct route to Luna from Cubao, which means that I have to drop off in Balaoan. Also I would like to request for directions going back to Cubao. Please advise. Thank you!

      Where to stay in Puerto Princesa

      Palawan Dec 16, 2014 at 7:04 PM

      Hey all, we are backpackers traveling to Palawan in late Jan. We land in the eve and are looking for a good place for 2 nights. Preferably a place with pool. We will spend up to $50ish per nite because we want comfort after a 27hr flight. (after that we will be back to backpacker budget) It would be ideal to find something in walking distance or bicycle to restaurants, beaches,etc.
      Can anyone help out with recommendations.
      Thanks SO much :)

    • Where to go to avoid the typhoon?

      Philippines Dec 3, 2014 at 4:34 PM

      I'm in Oslob now after swimming with whale sharks which was awesome btw. I had planned to spend the next week on Cebu and Bohol then a few days on Boracay before flying home. So my question is I guess is there somewhere else in the Philippines I can fly to, from Cebu, to avoid it then fly back early next week? Somewhere with nice beaches and snorkeling would be good. N.B. I've already been to Puerto Galera. Lastly after seeing how low lying the land is around here I hope if the typhoon comes this way everyone will be ok as a storm surge would cause a lot of damage.

The U.S. Embassy in Manila has issued a warning this year about kidnappings, specifically in Mindanao. Am I taking too much of a chance in meeting a local woman there?

      4.Are there any reliable and reputable spa/massage service around the vicinity of Lantaka Hotel.

      5.I would like a single room facing the sea and the pool.Which floor would be the best to ask for ?

      Balikbayan, 31 year old male returning to the Philippines for a vacation am considering visiting Zamboanga around the last week of September. Need a tour guide for maybe 2-3 days to show me around the city and maybe places around it to tell me about the sites, so if you have a Tourism degree/experience (or are a tourism student) that's a definite plus but not a requirement.

      Meals and transportation costs while we are together will be covered by me. Please send picture, a brief introduction and your proposed daily rate in pesos to be considered -- please take note that it will probably take more than 8 hours of your day so send an all inclusive rate and tell me if it's negotiable or not. My only requirement is that you speak English well enough and that you are knowledgeable of the sites that you plan to show me, hence the requirement for the introduction.

      This is open to men and women of any age. If you or someone you know would be interested, feel free to get in touch with me at co1791@yahoo.com

      Hello.
      I was going to travel to meet my friend and stay also in Zamboanga city. Another Filipino said i should not because it was not safe for me. Now im not sure and I am thinking I should fly her to Manila instead, but I really would rather see her there in her city (Zamboanga city). Can anyone give e thoughts on this? Also what hotels near the sea would be nice....doesnt have to be 5 star at all. Lastly If I decide to go ther what is the best way to make sure safe travel from the airport to the hotel? I travel to Asia twice a year and this will be my second visit ever to the Philippines which I admit is a little scary with all the guns I see. The people i have met have all been very nice. Please advise me.

      And how much does taking a pumpboat usually costs? We're going to Sta. Cruz island, Bolong and Dakak. I'm not sure how far they are from each other but if I want to go to these beaches is a day trip island hopping enough? If not, can you suggest a more doable itenerary?
