Planning a trip to Philippines - Enpiti - 06-19-2017

RE: Planning a trip to Philippines - shalabadoo - 06-19-2017

Unless you only go for sex (which I personally think is pretty sad, I mean there's nothing wrong with banging international hotties but there are other things to life) I wouldn't stay in Manila the whole time. Manila is a very uninteresting city, to be polite. Go for a few days to enjoy the nightlife, but the real worthwhile places in the Philippines are outside of their boring-ass large cities. Palawan, Boracay, Negros, Bohol... move around.


RE: Planning a trip to Philippines - Dash - 06-19-2017

I think you need to see other countries also as travel is cheap. What I would do.

Manila - 1 week

Bangkok - 1 week

Jakarta - 1 week

Beach Town - 1 week

Id take one of your favorite girls to a beach town for 1 week to chill and relax and explore. Rent a motorbike.

This will make for the most fulfilling and satisfying trip in my opinion.

If for some reason yo insist on staying in Philippines for 3-4 weeks id do this

Manila - 1 week

Cebu - 1 week

Davao - 1 week

Beach Town - 1 week (bring your favorite girl)

Id lie and say im 25 if I were you.

For accommodation use airbnb.

Don't need any vaccines.

For places to visit just check google / trip advisor for the city you are in. (also look for cool day trips to take)

I'd make mini data sheets of nightlife and other stuff to do and see in the cities before you go. You want to be organized, informed, and prepared when you arrive.

Pipeline 2 weeks before you go and put the girls in a spreadsheet and rate them on looks, DTFniss, and how much you want to meet them.

Good luck

I disagree. Get Hepatitis A & B vaccine. Especially the prevalence of the latter is pretty high in Philippines. You don't want to catch it, it's pretty severe and 10% of adults will develop chronic hepatitis. Plus it's sexually transmitted and I suppose you'll be having the occasional encounter.

Shouldnt one get that on their own regardless of travel? 

Id also get HPV vaccine OP if you havent already, you might be too old though for it.


RE: Planning a trip to Philippines - fellowtraveler - 06-19-2017

Travel questions:
-My idea is to go there about 3-4 weeks, all of them in Manila, it is ok? or would you go to Cebu or other places?

I think Cebu is more enjoyable than Manila. Plenty of girls here, and you can day trip to a lot of nearby exotic locations. Also a LOT of young foreigners (Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese, Vietnamese) about the same age as you, that come here to study english, so you can potentially meet a variety of nationalities. Manila is just malls and nightlife. Cebu is malls, nightlife, and beautiful beach getaways a daytrip away.

-Where to find the best acommodation quality/price?

AirBnB. Rentpad.com.ph may have short term listings as well. Stay near a mall or business district if in the city. 

-Places that I have to visit 100%.

Depends on your personality, if you're a nature person, lots of options nearby Cebu - take a ferry to Bohol, a quick plane ride to Camiguin, list goes on, etc. etc. You can meet locals here also and perhaps plan trips out if you're here for 4 weeks.

-Do I have to get any vaccines?

Hep vaccines.

-What to prevent in the PHL?

-How much money will cost this trip?

3-4 weeks in the Phils shouldn't cost you much more than $1000 USD (not including airfare), that's for accommodation, food, drinks, etc. You can certainly spend more than that if you want to, but not necessary. 

Game questions:
- Do you think it is ok to say my real age or it would be easier saying I'm 22-25?

Just say you're in your twenties.. If they ask for specific age, repeat.. "I'm in my twenties"... and leave it at that. You don't need to lie, but just give a general answer. As a man, you're not obligated to answer every question someone asks about you. The age question is a very common one in the Phils, I think I've been asked hundreds of times. Always same answer, "In my thirties".. and move on to their next question. Filipinos will ask a lot of questions - How old are you? Do you have a girlfriend? What are you doing in the Philippines? and the list goes on and on.. May want to hide or adjust your age if using apps. But if your pics are amazing, the age is just a number. 

-I've seen some 30-35 that are very hot. It is much more difficult to get laid with them?

It might be difficult for you, being 20. But also, keep in mind, if a Filipina is "very hot" and in her thirties.. it's almost certain she has kids (likely more than 1) and maybe married, divorced or separated. She will probably be busy with her career/family as well if she's a single mom, and not so interested in sleeping with another short-term foreigner. You'll likely have more success (and more fun) with girls in the 18-24 range. And there are thousands of them available.

RE: Planning a trip to Philippines - 20Nation - 06-19-2017

Man your mind is going to get blown. I was pretty young my first trip to South East Asia as well. It's what I wrote my book The Single Guy's playground about.

Also have to disagree about traveling to the Philippines mainly for girls. If you've spent the last 20 years of your life in a non pussy paradise, nothing will make you happier than getting laid like crazy for a month straight. And life is about what will make you happy. However, I would still recommend enjoying the culture, food and incredible nature that the philippines has.


RE: Planning a trip to Philippines - guys - 06-20-2017

pretty sure this dude only wants to get laid and doesnt care about beaches and what not, if so (and he doesnt want hookers) either get a place in makati or the fort in manila or in IT park in ayala

i wouldnt move from city to city if getting laid is the main goal, the longer you stay in one place the better they get and both cities have plenty of girls

Agreed. If his goal is 100% to get laid, posting up in one spot will work the best. The edge maybe going to Metro Manila, as it's more densely populated.

If Makati, recommend a place next to Greenbelt Mall
If Cebu City, recommend a place next to Ayala Mall or It Park.


RE: Planning a trip to Philippines - Dash - 06-20-2017

Yea but he can get laid like a champ moving around a bit.

Id rather get a bit of both worlds. See more while also getting laid a lot.

And your point is? Yeah it's possible to go to Cebu and not find it boring. Just that the overwhelming majority of visitors do find it boring, due to its utter lack of what most people find interesting (cuisine, an art scene, architecture, history, general vibe, nightlife that is not 90% hookers or prude Koreans or crappy EDM music). But yeah it's got plenty of single LBFMs and a casino, I guess.


RE: Planning a trip to Philippines - billyga - 06-20-2017

It was meant to be a joke.


RE: Planning a trip to Philippines - mike - 06-20-2017

I'm no an expert on the Philippines, but I'd avoid Cebu. It's a dirty, uninteresting 3rd world shit hole. I spent a good 5-6 hours a day walking around the malls and saw very few cute girls. Nature is underwhelming (though I went canyoneering which was pretty fun). Majority of girls I matched with on Tinder were ladyboys. Out of desperation I banged a 5 on my last night there and felt disgusted with myself afterwards. I also strongly disliked Manila, but at least there are plenty of hot girls there. Personally I'd chose Thailand over the Philippines. Girls look better, they're easier, and it's less of a shit hole. I also thought that food was terrible in the Philippines. Too much greasy, unhealthy processed food.


RE: Planning a trip to Philippines - Traveltothemax - 06-20-2017

Mike sorry to say it but you are really mistaken. There are so many easy chicks in Cebu. They may not be 8.5's like Bangkok, but a plethora of 6.0-7.9's. They also speak English better. The only big advantage is the food in Thailand is much better than the Philippines.


RE: Planning a trip to Philippines - Dash - 06-20-2017

Look decent with decent game you will bang 6-7s in both Thailand and Philippines.

So that is a none point in my opinion.

If you are lucky you can get an 8 in either country as well.

As the poster above pointed out, only advantage Thailand has is food.


RE: Planning a trip to Philippines - guys - 06-21-2017

definitely easier to get laid in phils than thailand, but in bangkok u do have the blowjob bars as a backup plan

thailand has better infrastructure, is cleaner, easier to navigate, and more touristy stuff to do

but if you just care about getting laid with non pros post up in makati for the duration of your stay, filipinas are flaky and lazy the longer you are around the longer your chances of finding them when they are bored and motivated to do something other than lay on their bed and like pictures on instagram

if you hop from city to city you have to do more work pipelining and only give yourself minimal time to reap the rewards in each city

plus you might find one superstar and it would suck to only get a night or two with her and fly to some new city hoping to find better knowing it likely wont happen

And infrastructure, prices and nightlife. I would rather say only advantage Philippines has is hornier girls who speak better English.

Infrastructure is fine to me in Philippines. Just order a uber and go to a destination close to my apartment. Hell sometimes I even walk. If I lived in Philippines and had to go to work everyday during rush hour then yea, infrastructure might would matter. But on a short smash trip, naw. 

Prices are comparable, esp when you are talking about a short trip. If you were living there long term you can certainly get cheaper apartment deals in Thailand. I found a nice new apartment in Manila on Airbnb for 15 bucks a night last time. You can find food for 1-2 dollars in Manila. Nightlife though I found was more expensive in Bangkok. 

I think there are more and varied nightlife options in Manila. You got Makati, the Fort, Malate, Quezon City, Pasay etc. Each place with various bars and clubs to choose from. 

Seems like in Bangkok people resort to Hooker freelance spots or harder to pull ONS places like Route66. 

I am not an expert on BKK nightlife so, I wont say for certainty which is better. But Manila nightlife would be hard to beat in my opinion.

For a smash trip, I mainly only care about

1) Easiness of girls

2) Number of options of girls

3) Cost of coffee, lunch, cinema and nightlife

4) Nightlife options

5) Language barrier


RE: Planning a trip to Philippines - guys - 06-21-2017

infrastructure is 10x better in thailand, if all we are talking about is ease of transportation the BTS is all you need

you can find food for a dollar or two in manila sure..... it wont taste any good, but you can find it

hotels are much better value in thailand

for non pro girls manila beats bangkok for nightlife, but if you are going to stay in the fort where much of the best nightlife is it will be costly, all the rest is pretty spread out making it hard to get a place nearby unless you only plan on hitting up one or two places
