Safety in Angeles City

hello

I'll have to make a stop of one day to Angeles for connections with flights to Boracay I heard around that there are security issues, robberies, muggings, etc. have told me about teenage gangs that surround the unfortunate to rob bags etc and many shops defend themselves with armed guards.

the thing I was afraid I would not ruin my vacation to have to spend a few hours here ...............

someone can give me some info??

are these things true??

thanks

greetings

I've been to Angeles several times and its not that bad.

Use common sense and you will be fine.

There were many tourists there today and I walked around my hotel last night to go out to dinner. Security guards at the front of hotels and establishments.

We lived there, visited friends there and pass thru there often and have never heard of or witnessed what you described. As noted, always take common sense with you.

cris54,

What you have mentioned is true but ........ such incidents also happened in other countries, not just Philippines.

Do not do what you will not at home.

Dress down and do not flash your valuables. If you see some street kids, just walk briskly and avoid them.

Do not bring too much cash with you. Just bring enough to last you for what you wanted to do.

Bring your common sense with you. Don't leave it at home. :)

thank you for your answers

I will use common sense as you recommend but it is good to be informed

sure that can happen anywhere, not only in the Philippines ........................

I live in Italy but here there is not much crime in the streets

so I'm not used to thinking of this

I hope I will not have problems

greetings to all

I'm not familiar with the various neighbourhoods there, but perhaps some regulars could recommend some of the better hotels or areas for the OP to stay?
