dog, at nite, find a safe place to stay and talk to locals, english is a 2nd or 3rd language to many people! the poor just speak 1 language but filipinos are very friendly. there are rebels and terrorists there so watch out. im pretty sure if your on the beach, you'll find waves but you need a typhoon season. cloud 9 is a great bet! Surfline.com has accomidations to it!

try to befriend the locals..they'll tell where you should be and shouldn't be.. no place in this world that is 100% safe and secured. just obey the rules, follow instructions and you'll be safe . the news you heard are exagerrated...if the whole 7,107 islands of the phil is not safe... ther'll be no filipinos anymore...we're all dead...you know...von voyage!!!

just got back from the philippines...manilla can be a bit sketchy, but is generally safe, if you don't go looking for trouble....Siargao where cloud 9 is, is a really nice little island and you don't have to worry about any crime there, everyone's just really friendly...if you go to Cloud 9 stay at Siargao Inn, highly recommended!!!
