Phillipines

We arrived in Manila after midnight and was picked up by a taxi and taken to Best Western Hotel which we had pre-booked via the net. We stayed 2 nights and booked a bus and ferry trip to Batangas and Sabang Beach. It cost 900 P. return for 2. We left from Swagman hotel 8.00 am and it took 2 1/2 hours to Batangas and another 1 hour to Sabang where we landed on the beach and walked to our accomodation. There is plenty of accomodation available in Saban and a man we meet paid only AU $ 300.00 for a 1 bedroom apartment for a whole months incl.own kitchen and fridge but no aircon. Still very cheap. Be carefull with money changers as they give you a great rate but try to pay you in small notes and when you have a big bundle they steal a lot of it without you even seing it. We lost 4000 P at a blink of an eye. They use a 3 rd person to distract you for a second at the point of handing over the money. Make sure noone stand near you. Otherwise the Phillipinos are very nice and helpfull people. Have fun.
