Philippine Travel Advice - Kidnapping

Recommended Posts

 

Latest Philippine Travel Advice, updated mainly for terrorism (in relation to kidnapping). Most notable, for me personally, are the addition of Boracay and the Southern areas of Negros. These are updates based on the available reach of the southern based terrorists and should not be taken lightly but are only an advice!

Lol that reminded me of that old TV series au wiedershen pet when they got kidnapped in Thailand and drove the kidnappers nuts and the local villagers turned on the kidnappers ( I think it was one of the last few series )

IMHO Phils or Thailand same same but different

Its all about common sense

Don't flaunt wealth or be a Knobhead

Don't put yours self in dangerous situations (unknown  event with lots of pissed up poor locals etc).

Don't go way south in PI (terrorist infiltrate north from Malaysian islands. One of the largest Muslim countries in the world).

From my first hand experience the PI people are much more welcoming of westerner's than Thais.

Main reasons due to shared language and they are used to the Americans being there for so long. Probably most Americanised Asian country bar none (but they all think we are Yanks "Hay Joe" Locals slang/welcome for American Servicemen or GIs so GI Joe).

Then again I never really had any worries on all my trips to LOS nor PI, only trouble I ever encountered was with pissed up Tourists (honestly they should be banned from traveling :rolleyes:)

Stay Safe All
