6Yeah, I try not to pay premium unless I have to. I don't want to always be worried about my "stuff" while I'm at the beach...takes away from the fun of it. I witnessed a bad scene in Chaing Mai a while back...young European couple put a 1000Euros in the safe of their Guest House, and the owner took it and "borrowed" it for a couple of days...without permission...the kids were not too happy...and neither were the police. lol lol Let's just say I trust myself more than strangers. lol

9they are not so easy to find in the UK, especially in places where there are no diveshops. Also the quality of them varies. I'm not that happy with the one I have that I purchased at some outdoor pursuit store a couple of years ago and would like to find a better one. If you plan on riding a bike in the Philippines, a bigger waterproof bag (I have two) to keep your stuff dry will come in handy. A cool bag is also good to have. You can load it up with ice and drinks on days out or even perishable food itsems you might want to take from town to town like a cool box, but still use it as a conventional bag that is not waterproof but is at least water resistant.

11mrsteve - that was my first thought too but I did not want to be too sarcastic.
Actually you can get waterproof cylinders to put around your neck - OK for a room key and some money. Try to get your room cleaned while your are around. Lock your suitcase at all times you are out not just if you keep valuables in them.
Snaplock plastic bags are readily available in western supermarkets - would these suffice? It is not clear exactly how waterproof OP wants.
