My Amazing Trip to the Philippines

I took a leave to visit the Philippines for a couple of weeks and gosh I love the place. It’s a paradise. Perfect beaches, friendly locals, beautiful nature, and it’s a cheap country to travel to. We spent 4 weeks in the Philippines and my gosh… The place blew my mind. I wanted to stick to the common South East Asian route of “Thailand-Laos-Vietnam-Cambodia” but I’m glad I didn’t stick to that and I’m here to tell you why. Shopping You’ll be surprised at how big the shopping malls are and how many people go there. They say that many Filipinos go there for the air conditioning and it actually makes sense because the Philippines is a tropical country. Tip: It’s better to get a taxi or a GrabCar going to the malls. Driving in the country can be really stressful because the motorists are crazy. If you plan to stay longer and it can’t be helped for you to drive, I found this useful website that provides free LTO exam reviewer, driver training and education resource. If you plan to drive in the Philippines make sure you can check out their article about foreign driver’s license. Friendly & Hospitable
