Iloilo does not get nearly so many foreign tourists as Cebu and Manila.Places like Boracay, Dumaguete and Bohol see more tourists and have many more resident foreigners than Iloilo.
I find Ilonggos, male and female, to have a reserve and seriousness which differentiates them from the more outgoing Cebuanos and even Tagalogs.
They seem serious, proud, industrious, honest, and pious compared the more fun-loving Cebuanos or Tagalogs.
Beyond the reserve, I find Ilonggos to be honest, kind, and courteous, but don’t expect them to fawn over you because you’re a foreigner.
There’s certainly nothing unusual about young Cebuanas dating foreigners but this does not seem common here.
While Iloilo has a few “girlie bars” it does not have the kind of pervasive sex tourism/bar scene found in Angeles or Cebu City.
Casual dating of a “white” guy would not be considered proper by many Ilonggas.
I rarely see young Filipinas with older foreigners, a very common sight in Cebu.
Many of the Filipina-foreigner couples appear to be married couples who have grown plump together over the years.
In short, Iloilo is not the best choice for the foreigner looking for a good time.
The upside of this is that the foreigner is more a curiosity than an opportunity and is generally left in peace and treated with respect.
It’s unusual for me to be overcharged or otherwise taken solicited or taken advantage of because I’m a foreigner. Sometimes when I do see children begging money, they will approach other Filipinos or my wife but not me.
