The Philippine currency is the Philippine Peso (PHP). You are well advised to bring cash money which may be changed at numerous money changers, who offer almost always better rates than the banks. Mayor credit cards are good to pay in shops, but in some cases there will be an aditional fee of 5-7 % for creditcard use. Traveller cheques are not adviseable. There are only a few banks that cash them, but this takes quite a lot of time, the fees are very high and rates bad.
Take every chance to change 500 and 1000 Peso notes into smaller ones (100 and smaller). Often people have not enough change.

Here you find a memorizer for the exchange rates to print out for your wallet. (Service of Oanda)

About your health and a trip into tropical climate, please ask your doctor or pharmacist. Good for your health are:

•A light sun hat (may be bought on Bohol)
•Sun lotion with high SPF (better bring from your country)
•Mosquito repellant (available on Bohol, mosquitos are only active during sunrise and sunset hours, especially in lower areas.
•The abstain of drinking tap water
•The abstain of foods of doubtful origin
•The way of slow motion of the locals, who are already adjusted to the climate.

The Philippines are all in all a safe country, as long as travellers follow the rules which are valid here as in other countries, too:
• Jewellery and expensive watches leave at home or in a banksafe. You are already rich for locals, because you can afford the flight to the Philippines, even you were a backpacker.
• Don´t go on photosafari during the night on empty streets.
• Just carry a small amount of money in your wallet. Put larger amounts of money and creditcards in a safety pocket under your cloths. -Pickpockets are all around the world at crowded places.
Like this, you may discover Bohol, the Philippines and the friendly people without stress.

Official languages are Tagalog and English. Beside these two languages there are many more languages spoken. The advandage is: Most of the people understand and speak English, which makes it easy to communicate with them.
