To whom it may concern:
Long story short: I want to visit the Philippines in August, and I need some information.
Is it really such a bad time for a visit? I know it's rain season but rain doesn't bother me. I am more worried about the temperature. From all Asian countries I was only in Thailand and it was 36 degrees in December...
I would like to avoid crowded places and go to some smaller towns to relax and get to know the local people, can you recommend the good place for that? I was thinking about the Luzon region(Cabanatuan City loooks good on the map), or Davao.
Do you know the places where I could ask someone about life in the Philippines details/ what should I prepare for arrival? When I googled a "chat with Filipino", I received dozens of date sites...
Can recommend some good sites for a foreigner so that I can read something about the local culture and learn some basic phrases.
Or maybe someone knows typical mistakes that I should avoid? -> (with the exception of traveling in August, this is my only deadline...)
Thanking you in advance.
