Cost of Living

The Philippines is a group of Islands in the Pacific Ocean off the East coast of Vietnam and surrounded by Taiwan and Indonesia from the North and South. A country of varying geography, the Philippines is defined by its majestic landscape of smouldering volcanos, naturally warmed swimming spots, lush greenery and serene, isolated beaches all interspersed with surprisingly lively urban areas.

With numerous islands to explore and a selection of exotic and ancient locations to visit most tourists return home regretting the short duration of their trip; living here will allow you to fully explore everything these islands have to offer. The Philippines’ dramatic landscape makes it the perfect place for extreme sports with rafting, surfing, mountain climbing and diving all popular pursuits for tourists and locals alike. The harmonious combination of Eastern and Western influences has created the perfect environment for expats to start an adventure and try new foods and activities, while still preserving the homely comforts of the West.

Manila, the capital, is one of 16 Filipino cities and only the Philippines’ second largest. Manila varies between its modern centre of business and the collection of small rural villages that make up its outer reaches. With an undefinable raw energy and smiling locals, traditional markets dotted throughout the town and an impressive, modern shopping mall this city is just one of many worth a visit.
