Hello TP people! I'm Anne, currently living in the Philippines. I've never been outside Asia and I'm on this mission to try to visit (or at least see) all the islands of my country.

If you have any questions about visiting my country or just some general information, please don't hesitate to ask, I will try my best to answer them.

~take care! :)

Thank you for your welcome Ahila! :)

I just realized that what I typed in here is a bit odd. I'd love to visit other countries as well, in fact I know some German, and for the longest time have wanted to visit Munich (where my father studied) and the UK (for the sole reason that I have a big weakness for guys with accents, hehe) but I feel that I must explore first the country of my origin to appreciate and understand before going off to other parts of the world. And besides, the Philippines has about 7,107 islands (number is dependent on the tide...) waiting to be visited. :)

There was nothing odd with what you typed, Anne. Most people start their travels by exploring their home country more thoroughly before they venture abroad. Have fun in your explorations and hope you get to visit Munich and UK some day! ;)

I know I will surely be visiting Philippines one day and maybe I will write to you then for some travel advice!

Hi redhaze, and welcome to TP.

You want to do ALL the islands of the Phillipines - aren't there about 5000 seperate islands?

ANYWAY! Good luck with it . . .

Good to have you with us.

All the best,

Actually 7,107 islands, depending if it's low tide or high tide...hehe. Well, realistically I'd like to at least try to see all islands of the Philippines and visit every one of them as much I can...:)

It's only dangerous if a foreigner would go about bragging how superior their race is and start insulting the locals...but otherwise it's a pretty safe place. In fact, Palawan actually has some foreign communities here (well mostly Germans around the great diving sites). The rest of my advice is regular travelling stuff, like don't go out walking alone at night especially if you're female (in Palawan there is greater risk of you running into a snake at night on undeveloped areas than trouble makers), don't go around showing all you money and stuff...Oh and if you can try learning some Filipino words, so that other vendors would think you just live around the place and won't charge you high amounts when you shop :)
