An Expat Talks about Moving to Angeles City, Philippines

Jul 17, 2017


Angeles City, Philippines

An expat in Angeles City, Philippines advises others moving to the Philippines to do your research and be wary of locals with hidden agendas. She found a home in a lovely sub-division that cost a mere $180 per month, which is a fraction of what she used to pay in Germany.

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Angeles City

Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.

I wish I had brought a couple of air condition units as most landlords do not provide them. Also, fans will help cut down electricity costs. A quality mattress is an important buy and so is a T.V.. I shouldn't have brought a fridge, lounge suite and curtains, as they are inexpensive there.

What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

Do your research and trust your instincts because although locals seem helpful, they often have hidden agendas and you'll definitely pay more for everything than you should. There are loads of homes in safe sub-division areas that have an office with efficient staff who are governed by a strict board.

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

It's a beautiful two bedroom house with a large kitchen, garden and two bathrooms. Ideal for a small family and a lot of expats live there too.

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

Accommodation is in abundance, but safety was key when I was looking for a house. After much research, I found a lovely house in a well guarded sub-division called Timog Park Homes.

I found a lovely home which had all we needed, and more, at a fraction of the rental costs in Germany. We paid a mere U.S.$ 180 per month for this two bedroom house.
