Hello all, I'm planning on travelling to South East Asia by my self for a year and I'm trying to figure out where to go. I've pretty much got it sorted but I've read a lot about the Philippines and how people have said not to go alone there cause its not the safest place to go for a westerner . Is this really the case? What's the best way to approach this? Want to go there but obviously a bit concerned about what I've read on internet about the Philippines. Is there places there this is not the case?
