I recently spent good money on a nice set of fitted dress clothes and I don't want to throw them away or leave them behind when I fly to RP. But if I
pack them in my backpack they'll get all wrinkled up. So I was thinking of wearing them on my flight to Cebu and then on the internal flight from Cebu to Iloilo were I'll likely be staying for several weeks.
An advantage to this is that the airline personnel and customs/immigration people will probably treat me with a little more respect and ask less questions if they think I'm a business traveller. This is particularly important as I might want to take the risk of entering RP w/o an exit flight ticket. (why throw away $300+ if you can avoid it?)
The disadvantage is that everyone says you'll be a big target of thieves, scammers, and pickpockets if you're dressed too nicely. (I would only wear the dress clothes to and from airports. I'd change into casual clothes at the hotels)
What should I do?
