Living Costs

One of the big benefits of studying and travelling in the Philippines is how cheap most things are compared to Europe and even other Asian countries. The extra amount you may spend on your air ticket getting here will be more than made up for by how little you need to spend while you are here. 

Below are some prices in the Philippines. If you want to compare the Philippines with your country, check out this link: http://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/compare_countries.jsp
