Philippines Information

This page contains practical information about your trip to the Philippines to see a Psychic Surgeon.

As Psychic Surgery is mainly practiced in the towns of Baguio or San Fernando, these are the places I will concentrate on.

Philippines Map

The Philippines

  • A large coastal country with 7,107 islands
  • Three separate regions with Mindanao in the south, Visayas in the middle and Luzon in the north
  • Manila is the capital (about 12 millions residents with suburb)

About 100 millions people inhabit the Philippines.

An increase in population of 45% occurred between 1990 and 2008 making the Philippines the twelfth most populated country in the world. 

It is not unusual to see large families with a dozen children in the islands. These are often from poor parents, and few receive an education that leads to rewarding jobs.

Most Filipinos are gentle people. Young or old, male or female, will frequently smile at you in the streets.

Traveling from Manila to the Psychic Surgeon

During the week, the journey from Manila can take 7 to 9 hours depending on traffic. This is the reason why we like to pick people up on Sundays.

Traveling with us in private transport on a Sunday is not so bad, it takes about 5 hours. Only 3.5 hours if you land at Clark International Airport.

Transport in the Philippines

JeepneyA Jeepney
TrikeA trike
Motorbike as a cheap mean of transport..Cheap transport

Taxis are common in big cities.

Taxis in Manila unfortunately often refuse to set their meters, and request an inflated fixed price for the journey. This is not the case at Manila airport that is strictly regulated.

Jeepneys are frequent, and a cheap mean of transport. You must try them at least once on your trip.

Trikes are reasonably priced and they will take you anywhere locally. 

I would not recommend going on a motorcycle as these can be overcrowded...

Buses and private cars are the only transport available between Manila and the healers. No operational airport is currently close to your destination. 

Buses are often in the news in the Philippines as many of their drivers take too many risks overtaking in bends or on top of a hill. It is a dangerous mean of transport.

The Roads

Out of the 203,025 kilometers (126,154 miles) of roads in the Philippines, only around 20% of the total is properly paved.

Pollution from a bus - too often seen in the Philippines

Pollution in the Philippines can be horrendous.

Many Jeepneys, buses and some cars spew a black smoke when accelerating.

Bad news for the lungs.

If you are vegan or vegetarian I recommend the following restaurants near the psychic surgeon:

  1. Green Smoothie - Arguably the best health food restaurant in Baguio.
  2. Cafe by the Ruins - They change their menu every 3 months. There usually always are a few vegetarian choices.
  3. Check Happy Cow for a complete list.

Wheather Informaion

You can see Psychic Surgeons any time of the year in the Philippines. The less busy times are from June to mid-October.

If you don't like hot weather, come between the middle of October to the end of February. The surgeons are often very busy at that time so book early.

Temperatures are high between the end of March and the end of June.

Most catastrophes linked to bad weather occur in the south, or mid area of the Philippines. The furthest north tip of the island of Luzon is also often hit.

If you come between the end of June and September, I recommend that your bring an umbrella.

Check this web page for up to date Customs, Currency & Airport tax regulation details.

The taking in, and out, of Philippine currency in excess of PhP10,000 is strictly prohibited.

Foreign currency in excess of US$10,000 carried by the traveler must be declared at the Bureau of Customs Desk in the airport.

My information may be out of date so please make sure that you check this web page.

Traveler's' cheques are almost impossible to cash.

If you are coming to see psychic surgeon Laurence Cacteng, make sure you get some Euros prior to leaving your country. Laurence does not accept credit cards. He charges 70 Euros per treatment. Ten treatments are needed for a body clean up. More  than 10 treatments may be needed if you suffer from a serious medical condition. Talk to me if unsure.

If you still owe money to Patrick, this should also be in Euros cash.

My advice is to bring Euros cash with you. Laurence will ask you for payment for 10 treatments on day 1, and so will Patrick. This way your money will be safe.

The local currency in the Philippines is the pesos (Php).

Credit cards are not accepted everywhere.

ATM machines where you can collect cash with a credit or debit cards are plenty.

Getting cash with a credit card in a bank can be difficult.

Cost of Living

Hotel prices vary immensely depending on what you are looking for. 

A meal will set you back between 300 and 500 pesos depending on your choice of foods.

Same rules as in any other country:

  • Avoid going out at night unless you know the area is safe.
  • Do not accept lifts from people you do not know.
  • Do not flash your money around. Keep it hidden in a pocket or body bag. 
  • I would NOT recommend that you carry a bag with you when walking around.
  • Avoid cheap hotels.

The hotels we recommend all have a safe where you can store passport, money and other valuables.

Emergency number in the Philippines: 911.

You may have heard stories about kidnapping and insecurity in the Philippines. All happened in the southern island of Mindanao where groups of Muslim operate. I have not heard of such incidents happening in Luzon where you will stay.

Plug used in the Philippines

Many islands only received electricity at the turn of this century.

Current is 220-240 Volts.

Plugs are similar to those used in the USA (see picture).

You can purchase plug adapters at most airports.

Mosquitoes are not very active in Baguio. You can purchase a cream or spray from your local health food shop, prior to your departure, if mosquitoes tend to bother you. I do not recommend products with Deet in it as it is toxic.

Mosquito feeding time is mainly at sunset and sunrise.. They usually leave you alone during the day.
