2. DO I NEED A VISA TO COME TO THE PHILIPPINES:
NO you do not need a visa to come to the Philippines all you need is a passport.
3. HOW LONG IS THE FLIGHT TO THE PHILIPPINES:
This of course depends on several factors such as where are you departing from and which airline you are taking to come to the Philippines. The least amount of travel time to the Philippines in most cases is Philippines Air Lines (PAL) although it’s not the best or the least expensive airline. From Los Angles (LAX) the flight on PAL would take you 16 hours to get to the Philippines on the way to the Philippines. On the return back to USA from Manila (MNL) to LAX is 12 hours. The big difference in the time is because of the jet stream. You can fly directly to Angeles City which the airport is called Clark Air Field and there is one airlines that does this and its Asiana Airlines. Asiana air lines have great service and usually the best prices. But there is usually a layover in Soul South Korea on both the way to the Philippines and back to the USA.

We are based in Angeles City, Pampanga, Philippines which is in the Luzon Island in the northern portion of the Philippines. We are about 70 kilometers northwest of Manila which is the capital of the Philippines. If you fly to Manila (MNL) we pick you up at the airport and it’s about 1 hour and thirty minute drive to Angeles City depending on traffic. If you fly to Clark Air Field international airport we are about a 5 minute drive to the Playboy Mansion.

Our location where you will be staying is in a gated and guarded community to add to the privacy and highest possible level of safety for our guest. Also on the tour at all times I or another tour guide will be with you anytime we go out to explore for all activates.
11. WHAT KIND OF MONEY DO I NEED FOR THE PHILIPPINES:
You only need to bring US dollars or whatever your local currency is and then it can be converted once you arrive and get settled in at the Mansion. The Philippines has their own currency and its call Filipino Peso. All money transactions that are done in the Philippines are with the local currency which is the Filipino Peso. You can bring a credit card but most places in general with the exception of Manila don’t take credit cards often.
12. HOW MUCH FUN MONEY SHOULD I BRING WITH ME:
This depends on how much you want to tear up the town and what additional activities you want to take part in outside the Playboy Mansion. Your base fee includes airport pick up and drop off, room, food and drinks at the mansion, laundry services, unlimited phone and Wi-Fi, and all transportation around Angeles City. What’s not included is anything that is not on tremendous and outside the Mansion such as going to restaurants, and drinks, alcohol, nightlife activities, golf, airfare inside the Philippines. I would suggest you bring for a 7 day trip a minimum of $1,500.00-$2000.00. It is important to note that there are lots of different ATM machines available and Citi bank as well which all of the ATM’s automatically converts US dollars into Peso for you.

16 Why is the Philippines sometimes on USA Government Travel advisory list?
I have lived in the Philippines for just short of a decade and never has there been any terrorist activities anywhere near where we are located. The island we are located on is the northernmost island called Luzon which is almost all Christian and Catholic and has never had any issues at all with terrorism. The very bottom of the country which is over 500 miles away is called Mindanao and the main religion is a majority Muslim and from time to time does have some small and minor terrorist activities. Any and all of these actions are directed at the government as the terrorist group MILF (Not Mothers I like to fuck lol) seek to make the far southernmost part of the Philippines a different country. I have been to Davao which is the biggest city in the Mindanao which is Davao and I felt very safe and the people were very friendly. Long story short when the Philippines gets put on a governmental travel advisory list they should list an area of the Philippines as opposed to the whole country.
