AC is more violent then Pat's we've known this for years... but it's no reason not to go there. Keep a level head and you'll be fine.

Hi All

 

Disturbing news, but every city has its own share of psycho's - my home city included (including I suspect, several of my neibours). Just try & be vigilant & take standard precautions.

 

Anyway, I recently returned from my first visit to AC - comparison trip report pending - & I was not shot at. I felt relatively safe - main danger was crossing highway intersection at SM Shopping Mall. Traffic coming at you from all angles. Also stay off the many dark unlit side streets at night is probably good advice.

 

One thing to be aware of, which I was not, is the airport departure tax at Ninoy International Airport in Manila. 750 pesos or $17 cash. My assertation that my understanding that my KLM all-inclusive airport tax tickets covered this fell on profoundly deaf ears. These tax guys were not budging. Incidentally, this is in that part of the airport after passport control, but before duty free. It's unclear what happens if you genuinely don't have the cash...

 

I remember on my first visit to Bangkok in October 2006 being hit with a departure tax of 700b which was a complete surprise to me just before entering passport control. Never been asked for this again, so don't know if it was a local airport scam.

It's not a scam, the airport taxes in the Philippines are not included in the ticket. You can see this if you book with Cebu Pacific for example, where they add the airport tax for the incoming flight from Bangkok on your price, but not on the the return flight. Manila is 750 Peso, Clark 600 Peso.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
