So how has everyone been treated while visiting or living in the Phils?

Personally, i have lived there for a few years and when I wasn't, I was visiting on a monthy or every two months. I have been all over the country north of Mindanau and I have never once had an issue. Other than the small petty things like having to pay a little more in a taxi because I didn't quote first...
