Filipinos are one of the most hospitable people in the world. The moment you land, you are greeted by the friendliest people who can guide you through the ins and outs of the city. Cab drivers – who also speak good English – will make a conversation with you and can act as your tour guide for the rest of your ride, if you’re lucky! Wherever you go, locals have a way to make you feel at home and entertained whether it’s island-hopping on boats with other tourists or backpackers or binging on local beers and crispy pork skin (chicharron!) while singing your favorite Whitney Houston song on karaoke.
