I need some safety advice travelling alone to the Philippines in Oct this year. I have three days in Manila, then an 8 day dive course in Taglibaran. I've been googling safety tips for travelling alone in the Philippines, and I'm now getting a bit scared due to the fact that I'm a white Caucasian female travelling alone. Does anyone out there have up to date travel tips and advice from arriving at Manila airport onwards. How do I handle airport employees, porters, taxis etc? Is it safe to walk around Manila alone during the day? I look forward to any replies. Have a great day.
