  3. Hi all , hope this question doesn't appear to daft. I was just wondering about communication when in the Philippines. I have a UK iPhone 6+ on three network. When I arrive in the Philippines can I just buy a local sim, insert and make calls? Thank you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Many thanks. I'm on the same page now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I'm sorry if I'm not getting this. I would just like to clarify. When I arrive I will try and get the visa extension to 59 days before passing through immigration at Cebu airport. Assuming that goes ok I then need to present myself to an immigration office on 58th day renew my visa for the remaining 3 days before flying out of Cebu? By leaving it until 3 days before flying out will I have all the necessary cards and paperwork to pass successfully through immigration? I do appreciate all comments and help given so far, thanks.

  6. After 59 and when I extend for the remaining couple of days I have to get an ACI card although that's not issued immediately? If it's not will I have any difficulties when trying to leave the country without the ACI card? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I'm just in transit, just don't want to risk anything that might mess up my visit. If I wanted to see a doctor to get a prescription how easy is that? Thank you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks for all the replies , very helpful. I'm traveling through Dubai they don't sound very tolerant. Not sure what the regulations are regarding passing through. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Found Viagra to be a big topic but couldn't find anything specific regarding bringing into the country when searching. I'm coming to the Philippines for a couple of months and would like to bring some viagra or generic similar with me. Could this be a problem when entering the country? Thank you.

  10. So many replies very helpful thank you. It's a real shame but the majority favour aircon so that's the way I'll go. I was surprised the apartment looks beautiful but in there wisdom they never installed aircon. I need to find soon as I've noticed most good places are getting booked up for Marc already! Thanks again for the excellent advise. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks everyone for your helpful replies. It seems to me aircon needs to be present in the bedroom from the replies. It's helped me make my mind up. Thank you Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hi all, Still in the process of booking my accommodation for my up coming trip commencing March 2nd 2017. I've found what looks like a very nice apartment/house on Bantayan Island lots of positive reviews on Airbnb. The only downside being it only has fans no aircon. Would this be a deal breaker for those coming from a colder climate (UK) It could be a tough one to answer as we all have different levels tolerance. Any thoughts appreciated. Patrick
  13. Thank you looking like my best option Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
