    LOL. The question is a bit open, but will share my view. I love the Philippines and the natives can be great people. They are friendly and kind. And the beaches and many areas are so natural.

    Many nice places can be enjoyed for little money. I love to sit near the beach and enjoy a 35 peso beer and maybe some grilled chicken for 35 pesos. I enjoy the views of the mountains each time I go for a walk.

    Different from some places I have lived in Asia, the people have a very authentic style--more honest, more real. You can actually make friends with them (not like all places in Asia).

    That said, there are things to watch out for. Maybe food, theft and corruption are highest on the list. For example, I like the food, but it took me several months before I could eat it without getting sick. At first I thought that children coming to me table to greet me seemed nice but one time I noticed my smokes suddenly missing. I made some noise and a local yelled at the children and (most of) my smokes were returned. As for corruption, please look at my other answers on safety in the Philippines.

    YES! Definitely!
    1. Hospitality and friendliness, are 2 of the main reasons why a lot of people including the famous ones are so happy and anxious about. That's why they keep coming back to the country.
    2. The delicacies. Ranging from the most exotic to the most amazing like balut, alamid, pinakbet, halo-halo, mangoes, sisig and a whole lot more! And yes, Filipinos love to eat!
    3. We have a very good grasp of the universal language. People from all walks of life can communicate effectively without confusing you. Not to mention, Philippines is still the best country in Asia when it comes to the English language.
    4. The Philippines is 1 of the richest countries in the entire world when it comes to natural resources. That being said, we have amazing landscapes, sceneries which are world-class. We have 7000+ islands where you can indulge yourself and relax.

    Philippines maybe chaotic and corrupt at the same time, but I'm telling you those negatives are not enough to damage the positivities and great things about the country. You will be shocked with the beauty that lies in the country. over 6 years ago
