  2. Cebu Zoo CLOSED July 2017
  3. Thanks for the info. I made a search in the news, and it seems it was closed last July. Carmen is 1.5 - 2 hours drive from Cebu city + travel from national highway, up the mountain 20 minute to the Zoo. Maybe 2.5 hours each way from Cebu city, to get to / from the zoo. Can't see too many tourists willing to travel so far, just to see another Zoo. Sad news for Cebu city, that lost a tourist attraction.
  4. Time Square next to Park Mall Cebu, is the new place to eat, drink, dance, party. With LIV Super club as the main attraction, Time Square attracts more and more people. Many restaurants and a few bars. It's a small place, so don't put your expectations too high. It's not Manila or Angeles, just a small place with expansion plans.

  7. Links to Tripadvisor, about things to see in Cebu. Whale shark swimming. Bohol day tour. Cebu island hopping. Oslob whaleshark. Moalboal Island. And many more. Some of these seems expensive, can cut cost travel to location by public aircon bus, or ferry. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Products-g294261-Cebu_Island_Visayas.html https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g294261-Activities-Cebu_Island_Visayas.html

  11. Ok hehehe some new info there. Look at it this way, in Philippines you get + - 42% more for your US $ than in Thailand. Thai Baht has been unnatural high for years. As you said 2.5 yrs, many things can happen.
  12. Good topic. For myself I prefer a condo with kitchen. However most units ask at least 1 month rent + 2 month security deposit (some even more) Example, Ramos Tower near Robinsons fuente typically rent for 20 - 25000 php per month. I will use 22.000 php in this example. 6 months lease will cost me 132.000 + 6x electric (2500) = 147.000 php for 6 months. The hotels i used ask 31.000 php or more per month. No kitchen. No electric bill. No minimum 6 months lease. = 186.000 php for 6 months. But full freedom to pay month by month. No 6 months lease. Airbnb, same size unit in R
  13. Hi topcat. With 2000 $ a month, you will have a comfortable life with your wife in the Philippines. If you are able to comfortable live in the province, without getting bored to death, I expect you will not even spend 1000$ a month. I spent only 30000 php or 600$ myself, when I lived in province together with girlfriend. As legally married, you qualify for 13A visa, so visa will not be a economic burden for you, as it is for us singles. City life, rent alone can be 200$ unfurnished - 600$ furnished a month. Dining out etc, I would guess you end up spending 1200-1500$ a month if you h
  14. I understand what you are saying. Im from Europe myself. I been active on forums since 2004 and topics about politics government army church, often become very heated, and what I call groups gangs clans on forums, just love to attack anyone who dare have a different opinion than them. Some forums are very USA and Army oriented. Not sure what direction this forum will take, since it just started up a few days ago. Very hectic days for the owner of course. I don't think the owner is from USA so I think we will see a more neutral forum here. In the end, it is us the members who make a forum
  15. Are you consider moving to Philippines or SEA and become a expat? Next year it's 20 year since I made the big step, sold out, and moved to south east Asia. This was before internet took off. I planned for a year, read all books I could find related to expat life. The first years I lived in Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, before Philippines caught my attentions. Looking back, I did a few mistakes. I sold all I had. If I could do it all over again, I would still have sold the house, but I would had bought a small apartment. Back then I had enough of my home country, cold weather, living cost a
