Traveling to the Philippines in a few weeks? You don’t have to worry too much. Culture shock will be pretty minimal compared to visiting other Asian countries. While other Asian countries often give foreigners a hard time adjusting, the Philippines will feel just like home. Well, almost.
This book had been written to introduce foreigners to the complex but very fascinating culture of the Filipino people. Having been among Filipinos for 10 years, I have been through all phases of immersion into a whole new different culture. It had been both tough and fun for me. I hope to make it mostly fun for you by sharing my thoughts and observations through this small book.
