i'm curious about the cost of rent and what kind of place you get for your money. can you give me an idea of what to expect starting w/a decent place and moving up to a nice place. i wouldn't need, but a 1 bedroom and even a studio apartment would be fine i think...thanks
Depends where you want to live. Manila is retarded expensive. Anywhere else from what I have seen is very cheap.
Check out the Living in Cebu website for some good threads on cost of living.
There are a few rental websites around the internet but they are full of owners trying to gouge naive westerners with inflated prices.
I'm moving out there in about a year- or a year and a half. I want to save up a years living expenses before I go. I'm a life-nit like that. I'll probably end up in Cebu.
