    How safe is it for Western females to travel the Phillipines?

    Hi Sue! I'm a white Canadian English-speaking 26 year old female. I just spent 3 weeks in the Philippines in October going from Manila to Palawan to Bohol to Banaue. I also spent some time in the Manila and Quezon City slums. If you're visibly a foreigner you're very safe. The Manila airport has wifi and a bunch of places to eat. People are kind and many speak English (it's the second official language), plus the places you're going are all well-established tourist routes. I wouldn't worry about it. almost 3 years ago
