When I read his article about the Caribbean, I had to laugh and saw so many parallels with the Philippines. I had to to adapt it to my own observations here on our small island in the Bohol sea.
Booking a trip to the Philippines seems simple enough. The islands are just a longer hop and then it’s sunshine. A 30 days visa-waiver is given for free. All you need to do is jump on a plane, hail a taxi, beach yourself on a patch of sand, and wait for people to start fanning you.
But as you’re happily, blissfully letting your guard down, you have to be prepared for a totally foreign experience. In this former American colony the rules are so different. First-time visitors naturally make a lot of mistakes, and even when you’ve been going for as many years as I have, you keep finding more to make. In hopes that you don’t, I’ll share with you the stuff you need to do (and not do) to make the most of your trip.
