Every now and then I come across discussions about terrorism in the Phils and some seem to think it's a risky place to be. Honestly though, what's the real deal with this? If you look at the list of incidents on Wikipedia it seems that something goes down fairly regularly there, maybe once a month or more... but truth be told is this a big issue for those considering relocating there someday?
I myself favor either the Cebu area and surrounding islands or Mindinao, which is where the highest concentration of muslims seems to be.
Just want to be sure as an American white dude i won't be a big fat walking target.
The odds of you encountering terrorism are minimal. You are more likely to be pickpocketed by scums there. Anything is possible, but the danger is too miniscule to worry too much about.
However, some people draw bad people more than others.
