Power Converter

Travelling from Canada do we need a 110 to 220 converter for items like flat iron, hair dryer? Also do they sell flat irons that are 110 in Manila? Thanks!!

Always ask if 110 volts is available in your hotel room. 110volts is not a standard household voltage in MetroManila. 220volt is norm.

To be sure, bring the converter. As the previous post says, the norm in the Philippines is 220v. There are flat irons for sale here that are convertible from 110 to 220 with the turn of a dial. However, if you're staying at a hotel, why not ask them if these items are provided? Would save you space and weight in your luggage.

Most 4-star/5-star hotels have at least 1 power outlet with 110 voltage. Do you have a power converter? If you will be travelling around the country you need a power converter which you could get in malls and hardwares. I got mine here in Manila for just US$10.
