    Dont forget as this is the phillipines;

    --Foreign office Advice--

    We advise against all travel to Mindanao because of ongoing terrorist activity. There are frequent terrorist attacks against civilian targets throughout Mindanao. Most recently, on 5 October 2007, two bombs exploded in Kidapawan City reportedly killing two and injuring 30 others.


    We also advise against all travel to the Sulu archipelago including Basilan, Tawi-Tawi and Jolo, where there are ongoing military and police operations against insurgent groups.


    There is a high threat from terrorism throughout the Philippines. Terrorist groups continue to plan attacks and have the capacity and the intent to carry out these attacks at any time and anywhere in the country. Attacks could be indiscriminate and against civilian targets in public places including those frequented by expatriates and foreign travellers.


    There is a threat of kidnapping throughout the Philippines. We continue to believe that terrorists and criminal elements plan to kidnap foreign tourists from islands and coastal areas in the southern Philippines-i.e. Mindanao and the Sulu archipelago. The most recent kidnap of a foreign national occurred in June 2007. Kidnappings from other parts of the Philippines cannot be discounted, with boats travelling to and from offshore islands and dive sites possible targets.


    The typhoon season in the Philippines normally runs from July to November. This is also the rainy season and flooding and landslides may occur. See the Natural Disasters section of this advice and Hurricanes for more information.


    Around 65,000 British tourists visit the Philippines every year. Most visits are trouble-free. The main type of incidents for which British nationals required consular assistance in the Philippines in 2006 were for replacing lost or stolen passports, running out of money or overstaying their visa. You should be alert to the risk of street crime. Also penalties for illegal drug importation and use are severe.


    We strongly recommend that you obtain comprehensive travel and medical insurance before travelling. You should check any exclusions, and that your policy covers you for all the activities you want to undertake. See the General (Insurance) section of this advice and the Travel Insurance for more details.

    Malaria, including malarial encephalitis, exists in parts of the Philippines. There are also periodic outbreaks of Dengue Fever (including in Manila), for which there is no vaccination or immunisation.

    Rabies is endemic and can be fatal if not diagnosed and treated quickly.
