I have not been to too many cities in the P.I. but I have to rate Dumaguete high on friendliness towards foreigners. Cebu was friendlier than Manila, which had the most bad vibes. Maybe I haven't been here long enough but I have to say the people in this Country have by and large treated me well, except for government fees and bureaucracy. Even the security guards here, much as I dislike not having free access to stores, have been nice in the main. In contrast to the USA where alot of people are mean spirited and rude. I think the poverty here is what drives most of the bad behavior when it happens. I have experience very little foreigner directed hostility so far, but I do occasionally get the "look of death" from the villagers nearby, but no more. What's your experience?
