Life

Hi Pete,

In over ten years I have found the Philippines anything but quiet. But it is or can be relaxing and enjoyable.
Subic Bay to me, would be the ideal place to regain peace of mind and body. Yea, the country has really changed a lot over the years and there are many places to enjoy life. Subic has great housing areas as well as restaurants and shopping malls. Take a look a Jon's links and see what ya think.

Good luck and hope ya find the "right" place;)...

I don't think price will factor too much as everything is pretty inexpensive.

I think what it will come down to is how "native" you want to go. Do you want to stay with all of the amenities, or do you want to go back to nature a bit?

welcome aboard.

Pete might be a good idea to take a vacation first and look around, peace will be hard to come by here when out and about, services aren't up to par with the Western world unless you have the cash and want to live in Manila and patience is a virtue, your personal space will be shortened some, could end up being a nightmare for you because most men come here to find a women or start a new family.

Drama is very big here & good friends means you pay for everything, people will love you but it's all on you, you run out of money your friends show back up on pay day.

This post just about sums it up in a nut shell. 100% truth and would also suggest a good vacation here before any move...
