Security in the Philippines

As in all large cities, it is essential to observe reasonable security precautions and to guard against the danger of falling victim to any of the fraudulent practices to which tourists may be exposed to, for example, spurious requests for financial assistance, offers of goods and services, exchange of foreign currency, etc. Thus, prudence and sound judgment should be practised at all times, whether in the hotel, on the street, in a taxi or simply telephoning.

In case of any emergency, the Regional Office's 24-hour telephone numbers are (+63 2) 528 8001 and (+63 2) 303 1000.
