Lol, your budget is going to be blown wide open>Fast internet
You must be a first time visitor too>Easy visa
You don't need a visa, just turn up and get your 30 days. Before this 30 days, go to BIR and they will scam you...yes, even government offices will SCAM you. First up you pay 5400 pesos or some random number. They tell you that you need to use the express lane, to use the express lane you must pay the express lane fee.
So to pay your visa fee, you need to pay a fee to use a lane to pay the fee. Makes total sense. If like me, you're not in a rush and refuse to pay the express lane fee, they will tell you that you can't do it and you WILL be paying 1000 pesos to use the express lane
In regards to meeting others, you'll never truly make a friend. Never. You'll make heaps of acquaintances but people will come and go all the time, plus the Philippines attracts perhaps the biggest selection of fucking weird loser retards probably on earth they all gravitate to the place more so than Thailand but less than Cambodia. Be very very careful about being in a 'friends' hotel, apartment whatever....you could get yourself in a world of shit just by association.
And finally, dress like a slob most of the time. Well not a slob, but dress down. If you look like a broke mother fucker, you'll have less problems than if you're dressed to the mother fucking nines every day
Don't trust Pinoy men and don't drink with them. Don't trust the women either, but drink with them it's fine.
Don't fuck with married women unless you like prison.
