Are there personal security concerns to be aware of at this post? Please describe.

Don't walk around alone at night. Generally safe during the daytime. If you get into serious conflict with anyone of any power, you are subject to drive-by assassination, a frequent occurrence in the Philippines. There is no really functional police force here, they are paid next to nothing and often corrupt. - Aug 19, 2017
