  • General Information
    1. Iloilo City, Iloilo

      Known as the City of Love due to its kind and welcoming people, Iloilo City is located in the Western part of the Visayas region, one of the three main geographical divisions of the country. It is composed of seven administrative districts namely: Arevalo, Molo, Mandurriao, La Paz, Jaro, Lapuz and the City Proper. Iloilo’s rich heritage is showcased in its delicious cuisine, treasured historical buildings, cultural traditions, captivating natural landscapes, and in the many exciting festivals celebrated throughout the year in the province.

    2. Weather

      As September is the wettest month of the year in the Philippines, rain showers are to be expected. However, there still are pleasant periods of sun and partially cloudy skies. Visitors can expect high humidity and temperatures ranging from the mid 20°Cs (77°F)to the low 30°Cs (86°F). Visitors are encouraged to regularly check local weather forecasts and stay indoors during severe weather warnings issued by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) such as in the case of an announced storm signal of no. 3 or higher.

    3. Time

      The Philippine Standard Time is 8 hours ahead of GMT (+8 GMT). DST is not adopted in the Philippines.

    4. Currency

      The official currency of the Philippines is the Philippine Peso (PHP). Retailers in the Philippines will in general not accept other currencies, so it is necessary for visitors to change foreign currency into Philippine Pesos to make cash payments. Delegates may wish to change their currencies at NAIA after clearing immigrations and customs. The average exchange rate is USD 1 = PHP 44.5.
      Following the regulations of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (Central Bank of the Philippines), Philippine currency brought in or taken out of the Philippines must not be more than PHP10,000. The transportation of foreign currency is legal; however, foreign currency in excess of USD10,000 or its equivalent in other foreign currencies brought into the Philippines must be declared before the Customs Officer at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA.)

    5. Credit Cards

      Visa and MasterCard are accepted at most establishments. However, only cash payments in Philippine Pesos are accepted in public transportation, small shops, and small restaurants.

    6. Tipping

      In general, tipping is not a mandatory practice in many hotels, restaurants, taxis, and other services in the Philippines. However, if you are satisfied with the service, you may wish to add10% of the total bill as gratuity.

    7. Electricity and Water Supply

      The power supply in the Philippines is 220-240 volts, 60 hertz. Outlets are mainly made for two-flat pronged plugs. Please check the voltage requirements of your appliance before using the wall socket.
      The tap water is not always potable. Thus, we advise the participants to consume bottled water, which can be purchased at the hotels or any nearby convenience stores and groceries.

    8. Restaurants

      Information on local restaurants shall be available at the APEC Information Desk.
