15Avoid the Philippines altogether. It's not safe there. They have mass shootings almost every week now. Wait a minute.. my bad... That's the US I'm thinking about.

The elections were a great cause of concern to some tourists in the past, because all bars closed on election day. Is this still the practice?

19Three days, bounty? Yikes, that is very disturbing news. Are you sure? Should tourists avoid the Philippines until after the elections?

20This is pasted from the 2010 elections...from midnight Friday to Midnight Tuesday...Hotels are exempted..
"MANILA, Philippines Those planning to go out and celebrate ahead of the May 10 voting had best damp down their party spirit for now.
The Philippine National Police warned Friday it will be strictly implementing the nationwide election liquor ban imposed by the Commission on Elections.
At the stroke of midnight tonight, the selling and consuming of beer, wine and other alcoholic beverages will be prohibited in public places, said Chief Supt. Leonardo Espina, the PNP spokesperson.
Espina said the liquor ban will be imposed until midnight of Tuesday."

22Well callippo, I can assure readers that even during elections you can get alcohol in bars/restos etcin Thailand. They usually serve it in tea/coffee mugs.
I've even drank it while Police looked in every now and then...
Mind you, the Thais are not as law abiding as Filipino's
