    how badly do I need an onward ticket to fly into Bangkok?

    I just had an experience in February 2014 when flying from Bangkok to the Philippines. The reservationist wanted to see my onward ticket from Manila but I didn't have one. She wasn't going to let me board the plane. I tried to explain that Delta won't issue my boarding pass until 24 hours before the flight. Luckily I had printed my E-mail with my itinerary and she accepted that. All my flights throughout SE Asia were one way and this was the only airport where I had a problem. almost 6 years ago

    How safe is it to travel alone around Philippines?

    I just returned from 2 days in Manila in February. I had a car from the hotel pick me up at the airport and I arranged for a day tour since I was short on time. I did venture from the hotel in the evening only down two blocks to a Starbucks to purchase something for a friend. I did not take a purse. I stuck my charge card and ID in my pocket and walked like I knew what I was doing. There was a guard in the Starbucks. There were many unsavory looking people on the street. I am a senior citizen who likes to travel and can't get friends to go the places that I want to so I tried to use common sense wherever I am. Going out in the evening was not the best idea but it was about 8:30 so I took a chance. almost 6 years ago
