Traveling to most people is a social activity. We travel with family and friends. We travel with our colleagues from the office or with acquaintances who have the same interests. There are times when nobody in our circles shares the thirst for traveling. In such cases, we can either travel alone or not travel at all. The second is not an option for real travel mistakes.
Many people travel for themselves for this reason. Instead of enduring the alien society in tourist groups, for example, individual travelers prefer their own, love freedom of choice and change, get to a place, leave early or late to get acquainted and chat with people, one would not usually talk if he was not alone. The Philippines are friendly to individual travelers. The Philippines is one of the places to be welcomed and generally hospitable for lonely travelers.

Local people are generally friendly to foreigners and there are many man-made and natural attractions that are usually not visited by tourists.
