The Philippines – Know Before You Go!
Be sure to check out our Official, extensive, informative and educational web page at: http://www.philippine-travelers.com/page_3.php , as well as this blog.
This Blog is prepared and presented to you by the ORIGINAL “Philippine-Traveler”. More than Fifteen years on the internet. Many have copied, and even used names that sound like ours, but we are proud to say that WE are the ORIGINAL. Some who are not even on the net as long as we have been, try to put us down. (That is called the “crab mentality”) But we are still here for you! Also be sure to check out our blog!
Philippine Travelers Blog hopes to gather and present valuable information on where to stay, eat, explore and visit in the Philippines. We also wish to advise you that no matter what you do, “It’s always more fun in the Philippines!”
All are welcome to post herein, however, top priority goes to those venues, (hotels, resorts, restaurants, or other travel adventures), that are easily accessible and/or staff that is very hospitable to seniors and/or persons with disabilities (handicapped) including but not limited to those travelers requiring wheelchairs, walkers, canes, etc..
We especially appreciate your comments and feedback based on your own adventures, activities and experiences (both good and bad). However, please be sure to be specific as to the comments you make, so that we might investigate, and other might consider your comments in formulating their travel plans.
We will also consider invitations and links from venues in the Philippines who feel their facilities and/or staff are friendly and accessible to senior citizens (elderly) and/or those who may be disabled, especially wheelchair access. Any and all such venues should provide us with photos showing wheelchair accessibility, as well as a link to their website, as well as telephone numbers, so our readers can make reservations. We shall allow your posts immediately, but be prepared for our field researchers to show up and verify.
We make several trips per year and will do our best to verify any and all locations and comments presented.
Finally, we all know that the Filipino (Pilipino) people are among the most industrious, hospitable and friendly people in the world. But much of the Philippines is not wheel chair or walker friendly. (Due to typhoons and tropical storms, many areas have curbs that are 12 inches or higher, and no shaved curb crosswalks.) Therefore we ask you to post both suggestions and warnings on places to go. Please be SPECIFIC in your suggestions. Name the exact locations to which you are referring. (Examples would be restaurants, hotels, resorts, fishing boats, ferry boats, dive resorts and/ or other adventures which are easily accessed by wheel chairs, containing ramps, etc.; or, as we know, most beaches are very hard to access, however, some may have a dock or wharf (called pantalan) from which a handicapped/disabled person may be able to access and fish from, or just enjoy the breeze, such as those found in Gingoog City, Dipolog and others.)
Don’t forget to add us as a favorite, as this section will constantly grow with little tidbits of information.
God Bless and Mabuhay!

FEEDBACK: As always, your comments, questions and/or suggestions are invited and greatly appreciated! Also, Should you have a “Philippine Based or Related” story you would like covered, please feel free to contact us! (Priority will be given to disability-related stories and comments, but all are welcome.). Questions and comments regarding guide and/or Immigration petition assistance are also welcome. We are also interested in great Pilipino foods! If you have a favorite Carenderia or restaurant you think makes the greatest dish, or, why do you believe your favorite hotel or resort in the Philippines is worth sharing? Let us know about it and what makes it excel.
We are also always searching for host families in the Philippines, for our reporters/verifiers to stay (usually just 2 or 3 days) , this allows us to save money, help host families, and be neutral in reporting since it saves us from having any fiduciary interest or link to the location/s we are reporting.. Dont worry about the size of your house, or even if it is finished, we are adaptable. Even Bahay Kubo or Dampa, we have seen and experienced it all! (Any and all Host family contacts or identification is strictly confidential.)
