Living in Philippines

The Philippines is an attractive place to live and work because of its relatively low cost of living compared to many other locations in South-East Asia. The Philippines consists of over 7,000 islands with the capital, Manila, located in the northernmost island group. The Philippines is unique in South-East Asia in that the religion is predominantly Catholic, and the culture has a strong Spanish influence. You can see Spanish architecture in the country's churches and universities, and many towns are designed around a central square. However, Spanish is no longer widely spoken so much as English. Many businesses and schools use English as the lingua franca, and young people enthusiastically embrace American culture. The Philippines has a year-round warm tropical climate and is susceptible to extreme weather during the monsoon season.
