Banking

Banking in the Philippines and especially in Tagaytay, is a breeze for overseas visitors as well as for out of town Filipino's. A proliferation of ATM cash machines that spew out cash (pesos) from international debit, credit and ATM cards are located almost everywhere. We've found that the Equitable PCI Bank, Allied Banking Corporation and RCBC Bank offers excellent service for overseas visitors. Other decent banks are PNB (Philippines National Bank) and BPI, The Bank of the Philippine Islands.

Western Union has signs and outlets everywhere, mostly at the major banks. So in the event you need money sent to you, that is easily available to you. If you require a USD bank account, that too is easily accomplished. A few hundred USD will open an account in USD for you. A few thousands pesos, (about $40) will open a peso account.
