The prices in the Philippines next to impossible to compare! There are several layers of prices depending on if you're a local, fresh off the boat, expat whose been in country a couple years and local markets by size and location. I've bought bananas at SM Fairview Robinsons for 29 cents a pound and a week later 59 cents! This is one of the largest stores in the Philippines. I've picked bananas off the tree 250 php pesos for 10 kilos! Go figure! Depends how bad the seller needs cash!!

Can a family of 4 live with USD$ 1500 a month? We won't be paying for rent.
Mike on Nov 30, 2017:
the person who said that they live comfortably as a family of 5 with only a 24k monthly income must not be aware of some of their expenses or they must not be renting a house. the average apartment in quezon city is around 15k to 20k i do not see how they survive with 24k monthly.
