Hello group, I am a British lady, currently living in Nairobi, Kenya. I have also lived in several countries in the Middle East. My husband may have the opportunity to take a role in Manila, so I would really appreciated any insight on what to expect, and how it compares with life in the UK.
I would be grateful for any feedback on the following:
1) expat community - I won't be working and I have no kids, so I will need to find English-speaking friends and build a social life. How easy will that be?
2) Safety - will I be able to move around freely and safely, using public transport?
3) Cost of living - in comparison to the UK (housing, groceries, eating out etc)
Anything else I should be aware of!!
Many thanks to everyone who takes the time to reply - it's much appreciated.
