Philippines Packing List Tips by hunwagner Top 5 Page for this destination
Philippines What to Pack: 38 reviews and 20 photos
Miscellaneous: An outstandingly informative and beautifully illustrated, 520 pages long guide to trekking, diving, rafting, surfing, biking, rock-climbing and ecotourism throughout the country.
Covers plenty of truly obscure spots you won't find in any other guidebook.
Unfortunately, as with the Moon guide, it is now out of print and unlike with that one, you would have to search hard and be very lucky to locate a copy. If you do find one, buy it quickly!!!
Miscellaneous: My favourite guidebook to the country. It is certainly the most detailed one, covering every single province, and has info on lots of remote places way off the beaten track.
Excellent cultural background, too.
However, its practical details are now rather dated - back it up with the next book for those.
Miscellaneous: Even though English is widely spoken, learning a few words in the country's other national language can be fun, and in fact useful if you go really far off the beaten track.
This new edition actually contains words and phrases in various major local languages in addition to "Filipino"!
Miscellaneous: Birdwatchers heading for the Philippines should certainly not leave home without this excellent field guide, the only one to the birds of the Philippines.
Miscellaneous: This beautiful book is the only guide to the Philippines for ecotourists, and it is an excellent, inspiring one.
Miscellaneous: Currently the only guide to diving & snorkelling specifically in the Philippines.
Divers should find it worthwhile.
Miscellaneous: General concesus holds that this is the most detailed and updated practical travel guide to the country. The author used to write Lonely Planet's Philippines guide until their ways separated. Note that LP now gets poor reviews for this country!
