    hi =)
    As far as I know the citizens of Philippines do not have to get a visa ...they need to pay a little amount of money at the airport (it was around 30$)
    And it is valid for 30 days..if you want to stay longer,you should apply for a visa.
    and ?f you want a cultural location tour ? can help you
