Asawa was there 6 Months ago for a funeral. She flew into Zamboanga. From there, she and other relatives drove to Dipolog in a Car. She said there were many check points along the way. I saw some really nice Baywalk pictures she took from there. But it is Mindanao so as a Foreigner go at your own risk.

Zoom in on street view to check the place out.

Many pages of news from Dipolog here. One shows a Brit is in trouble for punching a hotel manager there recently.

hey joe

I know it seems there are warnings out from everywhere not to visit Mindanao. I lived in Tagum just outside of Davao city for 9 months. There was never a problem there. I wouldn't move into the middle of a war zone if you know what I mean. I also wouldn't flash around a lot of wealth either if I had it. I read that Dipolog and Dapitan was very safe. Those 2 cities are 8 miles a part. They are 3rd class cities.

thanks

Exactly even when my asawa was living in ComVal when she had to go to Tagum she took off all her expensive jewelry and tried to act like she didn't have a lot of money.

hey cyberfx

in most places it is safe in the philippines. people bring a lot of crime on themselves by flashing around they got money. I lived in Orlando, fl but I wouldn't walk downtown at night flashing jewelry and etc. you are asking to get robbed. I never wondered around at night in the Philippines either. I wouldn't move in the middle of the Muslims either. It would be dangerous from the bad ones. I read that Dipolog was a safe city without the Muslim population. also attitude goes along ways with people.

Yeah my wife is the type of person that will try to head things off before something starts, so she doesn't like to bring attention to herself at all.

When we lived outside of Los Angeles we had a friend of ours who was from around Dipolog and he was always saying it's a nice place with no violence.

What’s wrong with Muslims?
ALL crimes are committed by economically disadvantage people and it applies to ALL religions ?
Just come over to the US. Most crimes here are committed by Xtians. What gives?

I'll chime in.

Suggest you educate yourself on Mindanao. Muslims have wanted Mindanao to break away from Visayas & Luzon for Ions. Read about the history (links below) of Christians who have tried to settle there then you will better understand Mindanao.

Atheist Foreigners likely qualify as first degree Infidel offenders and are placed at the front of chopping off the head line. LOL :D
