Much more than a travel guide, it spends more time on background and meaning of customs in the Philippines A 24-page full-colour section introduces the Philippines and its highlights, from the remote sun-kissed islands off the East coast to the lagoons of Palawan and the tribal villages of the Cordilleras. Each region of the country is covered in-depth, with the pick of the sights and activities listed at the start of the chapter. There are detailed and opinionated listings providing essential information on where to stay, eat, drink, dance, dive, surf, trek, kayak and sail. Finally, an informative and accessible background is given to Philippino history, culture, socitey, music, politics and environment. My book has become much larger than I had expected because there is soooo much to share. 172 pages published in December 2003

Henry Makow's enlightening new book is a must read for anyone considering a foreign relationship.  I highly recommend it.  I have a full page of details for you by clicking on this book cover.  jean

This is in many ways an update to Culture Shock Philippines. It give a good historical overview, then spends much of it's 168 pages explaining daily life, cultural issues family values and our focus on the family.   I recommend this as the most important book to read to start to understand us.

Culture Smart

One of the most important functions of a guidebook is to help the trip-planning traveler discriminate between great places and mediocre ones. If that's what your looking for, the Rough Guide is the best and my new favorite.   Take this book with you

Both original and expanded versions 2002 are still the best book on insights to our funny ways (except for my eBook of course :-)   It goes beyond the norm of "Travel Books" to share insights to our unique:
1. Body Language - what we say with simple eyebrow movements, a touch on the arm or curling under of our fingers;
2. We say it but don't really mean it - we want to be kind and gracious so sometimes we offer things but don't expect you to accept;
3. We say we are "traditional" and "simple" and "obedient" but what do "we" mean by those English words? A Must Buy >>>>>>>>>
The chapter entitled “The Country and Its People”  is an excellent account and analyses of Philippine history.  Even better than what is taught in school.  "I never expected to find such a treasure in a travel book. You will be ready to appreciate the country during your visit."  Lots of beautiful color pictures on high quality paper.  Sale<$10
