Welcome to “Live Philippines.” I’m a Midwesterner who has lived in the Philippines for over seven years. The goal of this website is to inform and entertain those adventurers thinking of moving to the Philippines and those brave souls already residing here.
I simply refer to myself as “The Kano”.
If you’re thinking of retiring to the Philippines, I believe you will find it a very hospitable place and you should be able to live a comfortable life here even with a modest income.
There are many cultural challenges to living in the Philippines, or any foreign country, for that matter, but it is my hope that this website can help you recognize those challenges and give you advice on how to deal with them.
