moving from melbourne to manila, cultural change
There’s actually a huge difference between Melbourne and Manila. First of all, safety. You need to be very alert in Manila because there’s a high crime rate in the city. You also have to be careful of cab drivers as they tend to scam foreigners. Better to use Grab in booking rides. Second, foods seem to be expensive in a lot of places. Try to look around for cheaper ones first. Public transportation is also very different. It’s very time consuming and crowded. But people are usually friendly and are good in speaking English.
