Anybody here from the Philippines?
Well, we are going to the Philippines in March next year.
Never been there before and looking forwards to some great diving, beers and fun.
Having spent hours of fun and excitement doing some research, we have decided to visit Cebu district. We have realised how huge and scattered the country is, and how long it takes to travel around internally.
We are going to Bactan first, get over the jet lag etc and do some easy scuba diving.
Next, one of my bucket list places, Malapascua. Famous for its Thresher shark diving. No cage, and 20 feet and 500 kilos of sharks gathering around you. The dive is at a cleaning station, where the sharks go to get small fish to eat the parasites off their body, so they are not in hunting mode and even seem somewhat hypnotised and trancelike ( a bit like when we go to the barbers )
Then a ferry over to Panglan, to Alona beach. More world class scuba diving on pristine reefs but with a bit more civilisation thrown in.
Now, we have met many Filipinos. Great people, lovely. Never on their home ground though.
Is anyone on here Filipino, who has been to these places, or has anybody else visited the Philippines?
Apart from Manny Pacman and Efren Reyes, I don't know too much about the country, its customs and any 'Do's and Don'ts'. What's the food like?
Any useful advice from somebody in the know??
If God wanted us to be vegetarians, why are animals made of meat ?
