While visiting or living in an exotic tropical country seems so much fun and excitement, one should see the other side of the coin. The Philippines is not for everyone. Filipinos have a very different culture than us Westerners do and you will face it on a daily basis. You will get a culture shock regardless how seasoned traveler you are.
This might not be just traveling, you may want to live there among them. You will interact with the locals every day and maybe you will become part of a Filipino family if you marry a girl. There is poverty and there is crime. There are scams and tricks you want to avoid. There are rules and laws that are not for the benefit of a foreigner but rather protectionist. You can’t own a land or most businesses. I want to be fair with you - the Philippines is a mixed bag of positives and negatives from a foreigner’s point of view.
