One Stop Advice for those new to the Philippines

20 posts in this topic

As the forum is perhaps the Premier and Go To Expat Site for the Philippines.

There is so much information here on LinC, but sometimes it is very daunting to find especially if you dont really know what you are looking for

I thought it would be an idea to have a dedicated Topic for do's and Don'ts for those visiting for the forst time

Everyone has had different experiences and will have some advice to share. 

 

So please share your thoughts (or even links to previous posts) that you feel will assist those new to the PI

 

 

 

 

 

I will start the ball rolling by saying that I believe this video should be compulsory viewing.

I heard from an aid worker here a similar story that happened to a poor Filipino they helped. She called the police on her neighbor because her neighbor was beating her (own) children. A little while later, the neighbor filed some sort of case against her in revenge----and since she did not have bail money, she stayed in prison for six years awaiting trial. Eventually, the aid organization liberated her from the Philippine justice system Now she works for the aid organization.

Not just the Phils, saw this program on the weekend about the Jakarta Intercultural School Child Sex Abuse case...the indo justices system seems just as broken.

This stuff really scares me.  I never have trusted "authority."

Should I be afraid?  How common is stuff like this?  How much is the payoff they obviously demand?  Talk to me, please?

The Philippines will never be known for their excellent police work or justice system. The police are mostly criminals in the Philippines, it is indeed a travesty.

It's just all about being in the wrong place at the wrong time and with whom. It can happen in any country. Just be observant, know the area and avoid mingling with the wrong people.
