May be visiting in June or July for a few weeks, my husband's family...
If I get a chance.....
Will try to plant boxes in Manila area, Cebu, and Dapitan City, Mindinao...

Trick is to find people to keep an eye on them for me....

Thinking local tour guides and hotel managers might .... If I do, will let you know.

Does anyone in those areas actually letterbox? I could barely find geocaches in Manila, most were micro sized or virtuals. Definitely needs to be at high traffic tourist areas. Anyone who's been to Manila knows traffic is so bad it takes hours to cross the city. So travelling to find a letterbox could be pretty nerve-wracking...

My husband knows the manager of Shangri-La Resort in Cebu. If we go there, we will ask her to keep one at the hotel...thisis a 5 star resorrt, people from all over stay there. So might be a nice place to start off letterboxing...

Might even be able to swing a discount for letterboxers... :)

Oh! I so wish that discount existed a few months ago! We stayed there a while ago and loved it. It would be a great place for letterboxes.

No, no one here letterboxes and the armed guards all over the place have dissuaded me from planting anything while living here. That and the fact that if anyone finds it, it will probably be blown up by the bomb squads. Ha!

Just checking in again... Philippines trip coming up in June. If we stay at a resort where we know the manager, we will leave a box behind, probably indoors. Not sure where else we would find a good spot...
Come and look for it!
