Pesos for the Philippines


The currency in the Philippines is the Peso, PHP. The fact that the currency has that name, just like former Spanish areas of interest e.g. Mexico and Argentina, isn’t so strange. Up until the Spanish-American War of 1898, the Philippines were a Spanish colony and were administered from “New Spain”, i.e. today’s Mexico. After first American and then Japanese occupation, the country gained independence in 1946.

The Philippines have about 90 million inhabitants and the country is comprised of over 7000 islands. For a long time backpackers have laid claim to the divine beaches, but today are accompanied by “normal” tourists too.  This excludes Mindanao and Sula archipelagos in the south, to which the Swedish Foreign Office warn against travelling due to the risk of being kidnapped and the acts of terrorism carried out by Islamic separatists.

The Philippines have three seasons, with a rainy period from June, sometimes until November. Hurricanes are frequent during this period.
