The inhabitants of the Philippines are called Filipinos. They like to call themselves Pinay or Pinoy.
It's hard not to like Filipinos. They are hospitable, open, open-minded and like to get in touch with travelers. This works particularly well since most of them speak very good English.
The Filipinos are culturally more like the West than other Southeast Asian countries. This is mainly due to the Spanish and American colonial times. Kindness, harmony, courtesy and good manners are particularly important values for the Filipinos. The family is particularly important.
In his spare time, Filipinos like to sing karaoke, play basketball and rehearse dance choreographies. Another part of the culture is cockfighting, where bets are placed.
