About the Author:

Marshall Cavendish is a Marshall Cavendish author.

Review:

This is the most up to date and comprehensive guide I have ever seen for traveling to the Philippines....

There is much humor in this guide and reading it along with my Filipina wife, we found that there are many details, quotes, and suggestions as well as analysis of the culture which are truly entertaining to us....

I can wholeheartedly recommend CultureShock! Philippines to anyone planning to travel there, in fact I recommend you re-read it after you return - you'll be surprised at how helpful and accurate this guide was for your journey - and this guide will definitely be with me when I return again, lest there were any details I'd forgotten over time. --San Francisco Book Review, October 2009
