What can you expect in the Philippens?
Friendly people that are willing to help you. (a typical working-class person makes 210 pesos a day. Keep this in mind if you talk business or leave a tip. Labor is cheap here.
There are many stalls on the street that sell items like beer, soft drinks, water, snacks, food etc etc. A 8 ounce coke cost 13 pesos. A stick of BBQ pork or chicken cost around 11 pesos. A whole grilled chicken cost max. 300 pesos.
If you have a strong stomach you can drink the water from the tap. I do that, but it takes a couple of days to get used to it. Bottled water is everywhere.
Food on the street is save to eat. But there are many supermarkets and restaurants. But since food on the street is so cheap, I never cook at home.
In the bar it works like this, entry is free, a local drink is somewhere between 60 and 110 pesos. A ladydrink starts at 175 pesos. If you buy a lady a drink, tell the waiters what kind of drink. A normal ladiesdrink is customary, if you buy the girl a SML that will cost around 250 pesos. But they are really happy if you buy a normal drink.
A trike from my place to Fields cost you 50 to 100 pesos. But its on walking distance in five minutes you are in the middle of Fields Ave. I drive a scooter, you can rent one if you like.
Do's and Don't for Angeles City Pampanga

Room has only the basic but enough for a pleasant stay. Location is great since it is very quiet but has everything that you need within 1 minute walking distance

I was very pleased with Nick; he is friendly and he helped to make my stay a good experience. In fact, I am going back for a second time and will be staying some at Nick's place....and you know that is the best endorsement you can get - a return customer.
What a top bloke! Super friendly and helpful, even took the time to show me around the place. The place is still being improved as we speak, but from what I can see it can only get better. I look forward in staying over again in the near future.
This accommodation was comfortable, clean and convenient. The host was accessible and helpful at all times and very accommodating to my specific needs. The rates were excellent and the accommodation was definitely good value for money.
This is an excellent alternative to hotel accommodation in Angeles City and was the perfect answer to my wish to live as a part of the community and not as a tourist in hotel environments.
It comprised of an open plan lounge/dining/kitchen with modular lounge, table & 4 chairs, TV on stand; lge bar fridge and 2-burner portable gas bottle stove; bathroom with basin, WC and shower; bedroom with QS bed and built-in wardrobe; wet room balcony with washing machine. Whilst the apartment was sparsely furnished, it was nonetheless comfortable and commensurate with any hotel room I have stayed in with the added bonus of kitchen facilities.
There are some excellent cafes and restaurants nearby within a 5 min. walk. For those interested in the bars and other nightlife, this is only a 5 min walk away, with the glitzier bars and nightlife of Fields Ave a 15 min. walk away. The large, western-style shopping Mall (SM Mall) is only a 15 min. walk away. All these times are reduced with an 8 peso jeepney ride or a 100 peso Trike ride (door to door).
The apartment is well-equipped, although I have made some small suggestions to the host for improvements to ensure client satisfaction.
I could not fault this accommodation as it genuinely suited my needs. I will stay there again and it will always be my first choice on any future return visits to Angeles City. A highly recommended option to fellow travellers!
Nick was great! From leading my lost driver to my apartment, to showing me the ropes. And he gave me some very useful advice on Philippine prices vs. Anglo prices. It kept my learning curve fairly inexpensive. The apartment was big. Way bigger than I needed since I did not throw big parties. And the air conditioner worked very well. It had all the basics and in time I think Nick will add even more pieces of furniture. Note: there are no street signs in the Philippines. Nor are there house numbers. You MUST tell the drive to go to the Petron station (everyone knows where it is) then go to the Blue Fields Hotel (everyone hanging around Petron knows where it is) and then you are 1/2 block away. Anglos are treated with such respect: "yes sir", "what can I do for you sir". I will miss being treated like royalty. And with guards everywhere, I felt very safe. I had lots of conversations with guards stationed in remote areas that I was walking around. Of course don't do stupid things like walking down a dark street after drinking too much. The city fathers really go out of their way to protect us Anglos. Again, it is really a trip to be considered "royalty" just because of where I was born. And in advance I will steer you away from Thailand and India. You are much more safer in the Philippines. And for some reason the price of electronics is about 1/4 to 1/3 that of elsewhere. I picked up some very nice stuff CHEAP. I did eventually start eating from the street side vendors. If I was quoted an "Anglo" price I walked away. If I was quoted a Filipino price, I stocked up. Like 3 lumpa for 10 pesos (about 23 cents) or 3 chicken egg rolls for 20 pesos. You can also eat normal American food for normal American prices, but what is the fun in that! I think everybody should experience at least a month in the Philippines.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
