Risk of Kidnapping in Southern Cebu

I'm not so  sure so many Chinese will want to visit Phils, one thing all Chinese hate is heat and strong sunshine, on Friday the weather here was a sunny day but cold, around 10 degrees, almost everyone was using an umbrella as a sunshade!!

 

You might be right, but I'm guessing they're going to be the casino and nightlife crowd.

It'd be pretty sad if the Philippines ends up being a casino and nightlife destination when outdoors and beaches are the obvious reason to come here.

I think you are assuming that the Chinese will make it easier for mainland Chinese to travel, but I don't think that is so certain; How many Chinese do you see in Macao other than locals, and that is the gambling centre of the world. The reason is because mainland Chinese have to get a special travel document to go to Macao, Hong Kong, it takes time, money and not always a guaranteed result.

The Chinese Government is still wary of their citizens travelling abroad and then spreading gossip on their return home.

It took a year for my Chinese Gf to get the document allowing her to pass through HK and visit Phils, even then I had to prove that her wellbeing in Phils was within my financial means.

I'm sure the wealthy Chinese can find a faster solution, but those Chinese want to visit Europe, Australia and even the USA, the Phils wouldn't even be on their bucket list.

I thought their (Macao's) main target are the wealthy mainland Chinese? True, hard for the 99% of the population to go there to throw away their money but even if they allow 1% to go there that's plenty. I think you might be right though about that it might not get any easier for regular Chinese to travel.

 

The Chinese (tourists) I've seen in the Philippines are in the casinos, the language students I don't count as tourists. Would really want to know what happens behind closed doors in Manila casinos. The fact that a Manila casino was part of the Bangladesh central bank case doesn't come as a surprise.

Don.

There are Chinese tourists flooding Thailand and Vietnam.

 

Many Chinese speak a little English, but they do not speak 

Thai or Vietnamese, so that might be one reason for them to

go to the Phils.

 

The Chinese flood the beaches in the mornings and evenings to

take selfies to post on Wechat.

 

I worked in China for 8 years, and it seemed as though everyone I talked

to had visited Thailand.   The visa process is much easier than Western countries.

Cheer up. If they are the casino and nightlife crowd they wont be in the outdoors or on the beaches.
