Cost Of Living In Angeles City (2009)

Cost of Living in Angeles City, Balibago Barangay

Gene said: "Olongapo proper and Angeles City proper are about the same. Both are quite dull with very little to recommend to visitors."

I must refute this assessment. It is unfair to the thousands of expats who live, work, and/or vacation in Angeles City (AC) and Olongapo.

First, let me remind our readers that Angeles City is a moderately-sized town, both in population and area. AC has a population approaching 300,000.

Cost Of Living In Ermita Manila (2009)

I live in Ermita Manila, so I will do my best to answer some of your questions. Keep in mind; these are my experiences which surely will differ from others.

Tap Water: In the almost year and a half that I have been living in Ermita Manila, I have not had any water shortage problems. I know of an individual that lives in another area in Manila and he has weekly water truck deliveries. The water that comes out of my faucets look like ordinary water, however I do not drink it. I purchase five gallon water jugs for 50 Pesos each.
