Lo­cal Lingo

TH­ESE EXPRESSIONS AND PHRASES GIVE TOURISTS AN EN­TRY POINT INTO LO­CAL CUL­TURE.

Town & Country (Philippines) - - LOOKING GLASS -

Some would ar­gue that im­mer­sive travel is the best kind. No longer is it just about dis­cov­er­ing the un­fa­mil­iar; it’s about know­ing a place like a lo­cal. It all starts with listening to the merry talk in neigh­bor­hood pubs or ob­serv­ing the cus­toms of a town off the beaten path. If time al­lows, one can en­joy the perks of be­ing well-versed in na­tive phrases—in­sider expressions that have a con­stel­la­tion of mean­ing (de­pend­ing on the con­text) and that of­ten re­sist a di­rect trans­la­tion in the vis­i­tor’s na­tive tongue.
