Philippines - Is it safe for a female to travel alone
Hi All,

I have booked to Travel Manila > El Nido > Cebu (possibly Moalboal) > Boracay and I have heard from a few people after booking it is not safe for a caucasian female to travel alone.

However, I have heard some bad reviews going on my own, which is freaking me out a little. I've never been bothered before but I guess that because I've had company in some way previously. Is there anything I should be aware of in the places I'm going to?

Since you just posted this on another thread, how come you are asking about safety here?

You should include the Philippines in your itinerary. Visiting the Philippines is big fun. Perfect beaches. Friendly locals. Beautiful nature. Plus, it's a cheap country to travel, you'll get a great value for your money.
