Hi guys. i`m from Europe, and i`ve been wanting forever to go to Philippine, for a vacation. I might just do that next year, and i want to ask you how much would YOU pay for a 15 days vacation in Philippines? I want to know "how much is too much".

500 bucks

500 bucks

How much you got?

The amount of money to spend on holidays is really up to you.


Excluding accommodation (chose a hotel from $20 a night to $1000 a night), I would budget for about $60 a day.


This includes:

- Any day trips you want to take (say, guided bus trips)

- Taxi fares (you don't want to waste your precious holiday time using public transport)

- Eating in decent restaurants (your stomach won't be able to handle the local germs so don't risk it or you'll spend your holiday on the toilet)

- Going out at night and having a few drinks etc.

- Buying souvineers for yourself/family back home

- Maybe you'll meet a new "friend" and want to treat her to dinner/new clothes etc.


$60 will be plenty of money; you'll generally spend less, but sometimes more. As you're on holiday it's better to enjoy your time rather than worry about $10 (remember, you just spent $2000 on airfare, don't worry about $10).


Also, allocate some extra money for any internal flights you want to take.


Enjoy your trip, it's a great place to go.





15 day cost

I Guess it would depend on where you will stay and what your plans are.

I plan to go to Cebu and my wife being from Cebu told me I will need about $100 a day @ current exchange rate of P45/$

 that was staying in a 3 star hotel plus paying for personal guide (in-law) basiclly to keep me out of trouble and not to get robed.

A "personal guide"??? Sounds

A "personal guide"??? Sounds like your wife is trying to make some money for her in-law.


You don't need a guide there. You can easily make your own way around or your wife can "guide" you if you really need some hand-holding.


hello my name is Randy can u tell me more boutCebu i want to take  trip there in the near g/f i from there

did u marry her there r u from the usa and then u mrry her there or here

thank you

MARRY EITHER WAY WORKS.... can marry your gf either in Phils. or in USA.  Your first requirement either way when you file to bring her here will be that you have known her and corresponded with her(mail. email. telephone, video chat, skype, etc.  etc.)Also, when you visit her be sure to take plenty of pictures with at least 2 of them showing a landmark of the Philipinnes.

My suggestion would be to seek out an Immigration attorney before and after you travel to meet her to find out which way to file will be best for your needs. A good Immigration attorney will be invaluable to you and will save you time and money. You will probably here from friends that the forms are simple and they are to a point but if you make just one mistake or forget to attach one document, it will be sent back to you and you must refile and start again.

I myelf chose the Fiance Visa because it gave us more latitude, ie., meeting her and then deciding to marry once she was here.  As far as Immigration processing time they both are 6-8 months to process IF she has all her clearences and passport up to date to exit the Philippines.

When searching for a good Immigration attorney, ask around as I did.  I have some Hispanic friends and they referred me to a great and even inexpensive attorney.

Good luck and best wishes.
