Embark on the Philippines Expats Life

From the country's summer capital at Baguio to 2000-year-old rice terraces, the Philippines has much to offer to expatriates, tourists and travelers from all over the world. However, the sizable expat Philippines community is mainly attracted by its economic opportunities, e.g. in the electronics sector, and the urban development in Manila and Cebu. Expat living in the Philippines surely can face a challenge once in a while, but at the same time it is a wonderful intercultural experience you will never forget.
