This cunt at Rizal park overcharged us 4x the agreed rate for a calesa ride
I wanted to just walk away but gf was afraid of getting in trouble. So I paid.
I'm still pissed about it
>>
I always had the feeling that Filipinos were the slavs of asia but last night, all my doubts were dispelled when I heard someone blasting legit slav hardbass in the neighborhood
>>
>>1405610
Most calesa riders do that nowadays. I usually just bike around Rizal, it's more satisfying.
>>
>>1405610
God I hate those fuckers. You should have just paid him the agreed rate then added like P50 for tip and walked away.

>I wanted to just walk away but gf was afraid of getting in trouble
yeah like we're going to believe it wasn't you who pussied out, fag
>>
>>1406114
what's he going to do, unless u r expat with local connections its foreigner word VS local and police will always side with the scamming driver (and then prob increase the scam so they get paid too).

can't punch out the manlet driver either unless u want to get arrested. If however you live here in flipland it's a different story that scammer is rekt

If weather was the determining factor should I go to El Nido in August or wait until January/February would be my next option.

Also el Nido is'nt a firm destination yet. Coming from US
>>
>>1406507
google average weather for El Nido, pretty sure August is rainy season filled with mosquitoes you prob want Jan/Feb
>>
>>1406497
Srsly tho just record this kind of shit next time and when they demand for higher rate show the fucking video. That should shut them up. He also had a local with him but she’s too much of a pussy to do something

Been here for almost 2 months, I will now rate the foreigners I've run into in a purely anecdotal fashion, from multiple conventions and hotels and just in the streets.

>Top Tier
British, Australian, South Africans (Including black south africans), Germans, French, Russians - Not cucks, don't bring up politics every second recycling CNNspeak, don't act like kings, generally decent blokes.
>Mid Tier
Rest of Africans(nigeria/cameroon), Koreans, Japs, Chinese, minority of Americans (mainly the black Americans), and foreign flips back for vacation - Semi cuckish, always with a bargirl, Africans always go on about how rich they are in 'stock market' despite clearly being full of shit, Chinese often act like kings, Koreans tend to act ridiculous getting mad nobody can understand their babbling Korean and pointing to things plus complain nonstop if they speak english. Saw two American black guys trying to pull the 'I'll buy this but then pretend I don't have enough money and you'll just let me have it after I make a gigantic scene' game. At least no politics from any of this group.
>Shit Tier
American 'Tech industry' bums, all Kiwis, Spaniards, Ukranian men - kiwis are total cucks beyond belief, one kiwi actually stood up in a cafe and ranted how mad he was a blonde girl was there outside. "Doesn't belong here!" and the rest of the Kiwis I met were utter trash, drinking in public and just complaining how much they hate white women. None of them work and all live here somehow just bumming off family. Every American guy with a laptop pretending to work in cafes was totally broke and just trying to sell me a scam, while at the same time unable to stop talking about racism, Trump or Duterte to the point I ran away from them. The Spaniards act like they own the Philippines and are always with bargirls. Finally, Ukranian men, I have no idea how they get here but they are all pissed wasted, complete assholes and constantly picking fights with everybody including cops.

Oops I forgot the Indians.

Turbo Pajeets. All stay on one hotel floor with 10 guys per room, leave doors open and just yell Pajeet babble to each other across the hall. Set up literal blowtorch stoves in their hotel and cook a giant curry pot which stinks up the entire floor. Outside of living next to them they are OK and not cuckish plus zero of them pursued bar chicks and were actually there doing work not pretending to work, so I guess Mid Tier due to 3rd world shenanigans.

How's the whoring in Angeles City at present? Do the prostitutes take the summer off or is it their busy season?
>>
>>1407078
they also have the most authentic-sounding tagalog when they know how to speak it

>>1407163
Cebu is a shithole

>>1407163
Stay away from big cities. Moalboal was cool.

I'm staying Makati. Do you have any suggestions?
>>
>>1407163
Malapascua sounds pretty dank

>>1407430
Expats here seem to like the Jazz Residences. I looked at the airbnbs and they’re not bad. Previous thread had a discussion about this, might want to check that out
>>
>>1407430
Shop at the malls
Stay in the hotels/condos.

Why the fuck is craft beer here so expensive? Jesus all I want is a good stout that doesn't cost 4-5 dollars. Help me out here brehs.

Wew

Anon also shouldn't bother with restaurants and just get takeout, all Filipinos just stare at their phones the entire time uploading pics to Facebook and don't even talk to each other, or worse make nonstop video chat calls to other people with the vol maxed out. Imagine an entire country of preteen girls but they're adults.
>>
Question, why don't flip cops round up all those Mindanao pickpockets all over Manila? 3am and like dozens of little kids running in the streets stealing shit.
>>
>>1407901
They're like Hydra heads, if you get rid of some, more will come.

Currently working out an plan for a trip:

>Manila - 3days
>Fly to Cebu - 4 days
>ferry to Bohol - 2 days
>Ferry back to Cebu then fly to Coron - 3 days
>ferry to Palawan - 5 days
>fly back to Manila

Thoughts?

Don't go to Oslob for whale shark tourism if you care about animals. The whale sharks there are suffering from wounds they get when grinding their mouth towards a boat and stress from tourists. If you want to see whale sharks in their natural habitat, that means seeing one swim around, you should go to Samar, Bicol or Puerto Princesa

because they are children. They are rarely caught simply because they cannot be sentenced and jailed.
You know that they were actually trying to lower the age of criminal responsibility from 15 to 9 and the entire world went "OH NO THEY WILL LOWER THE AGE SO POLICE CAN KILL MINORS, THE HORROR, THE HORROR"
I don't know what happened to that bill, but it surely is necessary to deter these little monkeys that crime syndicates use as they are immune from the law. Street children can even technically kill without consequences as there is no ID system out yet to point out who their parents are

Pretty good.

Going to Davao for a week in July.
Wondering if I should go anywhere else though; elsewhere options are Cebu and Manila although I only care for beaches and scenery and food.
Not a big clubber.
Will be going with a girl I've already been talking to for a year+ who will be staying with me in my (hotel or condo: which should I get?)
>inb4 she's a he.
dw about any of that anons, just need advice.

Also is it wiser to book a trip from
>current location to manila to davao all in one booking
or
>[self] to manila / stop in manila / book a new flight to davao while in manila?
>>
>>1408433
Clarifying the 'with a girl'.
Not 'travelling with her from my current location' but 'meeting her there'.
It's already clarified in the following sentences but w/e..
>>
>>1408369
Can't the districts in Manila simply pass curfews to keep the stealing monkeys off the streets though? Every other major city on earth manages to do this (except Rio). Even Yangon, which is vastly more poor than Manila, and surrounded by gigantic shanty towns, there's no gangs of thieving kids literally in the middle of the street all hours of the night. You can't smoke in Manila without getting a fine yet Mindanao mothers can lay on the side of the road and send their kids out to steal 24hrs a day.
>>
>>1408433
>current location to manila to davao all in one booking
This one. You'll save more money.
>>
>>1408436
They do have curfews in some of the districts. Others tried but was protested with "DURR DIS VIOLATES THE FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT OF YOUTHS"

Seems not; only retardation ensued from the airlines when attempting.
Prices are ridiculous: look.
>>
>>1408946
>$6k
Wow. Then [self] to manila / stop in manila / book a new flight to davao while in manila is indeed your best choice.

Is Banaue worth the 9hr bus trip there and back to Manila?
>>
>>1409335
Yes.

How is the Phillipines for a white tourist near Manila, a couple friends apparently want to go get a tattoo from that granny who practices that dying art. I don't care for it, but it might be fun to go if I don't get robbed.
>>
>>1409512
Get your Hepatitis B shots if getting a tattoo in the 3rd world.
>>
>>1409512
There’s a shit ton of white tourists all over Philippines. Just be cautious of your belongings and don’t be stupid. Like if you’re in a crowded place/sketchy place with a lot of sqauatters, you might want to put your backpack in front and not put anything in your back pocket. But overall you’ll be fine. And the granny you’re talking about is probably Whang Od https://www.thebrokebackpacker.com/tribal-tattoo-with-whang-od/
>>
>>1408436
They already did
it didnt work because the kids were homeless
>>
>>1408187
Just go straight to coron and palawan

>>1409561
they moved from Mindanao to get high and beg from tourists, they aren't refugees or anything just drug migrants.

Is Resorts World a good place to gamble on? Or is there a better casino for me to gamble on?
