no wonder people try to kill his family.
I went to Mindanao my first trip to the Philippines but I was a little nervous there, but no problems, I avoided the western Mindanao and stuck to the north/northeast and it was fine, the rest of the country was fine too. I avoided Mindanao altogether on subsequent trips, I just didn't see the need to take chances when the rest of the country seems safer. I wouldn't hesitate to go back right now in spite of the travel warnings, I suspect it's safe.

I just got back from the Phillipines after six weeks there and i dont really understand why the travel warning.Most people know that the island of Mindanao can be dangerous due to rebel activity but most of the Phillipines that i have traveled in is safe as long as you follow basic travelling etiquette.
