    i live in white sands, maribago beach, for 5 days and the staff are honest and friendly. whenever you are ready to hit the road to your tourist attractions, ask the staff in your hotel before hopping into a taxi. ask the staff how long and what's approximate meter cost of taking a taxi. i trust my hotel staff more than anyone else in the area.

  • BE CAREFUL OF OVER-FRIENDLY LOCAL PEOPLE

    by macauchick Written Nov 25, 2008

    i was wandering at mactan shrine and a guy who appeared to be very nice and friendly and followed/guided me to the lapu lapu statue and etc where i can go there myself because there are all right in front of me. when i asked him was he giving a free tour and he said it was totally up to me. after the 10 mins tour and i hopped in a taxi which is believably driven by his "friend", he asked me for 30 pesos!!! since im travelling alone and i dont wanna have any troubles, i was forced to pay him for walking around with me without my consent!!
