DAVAO | CAGAYAN DE ORO | CEBU | ANGELES | MAY 2017


ABOUT ME

Korean-American. From California. Mid-to-late twenties. 5'11". 170 pounds. Athletic build.


DAVAO


DURATION OF STAY

1 week


EXISTING INFORMATION

The most recent thread was in 2014. Hopefully my datasheet can be a refresher on this city. The hyperlinks below will be listed under chronological order based on the OP's first post.

ACCOMMODATION

Magallanes Residences: I rented a small 1 bedroom apartment through AirBnB. I would highly recommend staying here. It’s right in the heart of Davao. The residences are safe, clean, modern and the AirBnB host I stayed with is a super nice. More importantly, you can bring girls back here no problem.


TRANSPORTATION

Grab Taxi | Regular Taxi

Sometimes the Grab taxi will not answer your request or there’s just none around. But the regular taxis are safe and just as cheap.


ONLINE GAME

Tinder | Filipino Cupid


DAY GAME

Even though it’s only open at night. The Roxas Night Market is an awesome place that’s open every night. They have cheap food and plenty of girls go there to eat, walk around, hang out. Great place for “day game” even though its night time. Also, a good spot for tinder dates.


NIGHT GAME

Most of the bars and clubs are on Polo St. The people who party in Polo St are more of your middle class and ex-pat folks. I will comment on the venues that I have visited or the locals recommend. Nightlife here in Davao is not the biggest but it has enough.


CLUBS:

WAV: Formerly “Acropolis”. I was here on a weekday and no surprise it was dead. The staff told me that it gets crowded on weekends. They have a good size dance floor. 100 peso cover (even on weekdays) but you get 1 free drink with that.

Grid: On Polo St. Weekends are crowded with a good ratio of girls. I’ve never been on a weekday but people tell me its decent. Medium size club with an outdoor seating area. Inside, the dance floor is small. Most of the club is filled with tables. I found it easier to open and chat up girls outside. Due to the loud music, small dance floor and everyone grouped in tables. It can be harder to open sets inside rather than outside. 100 peso cover charge that gets you 1 free drink.

Alcatraz: On Polo St. Next to Grid. Crowded on weekends. I don’t know how it’s like on weekdays. But just like Grid, people say it’s decent as well. Medium size club. Also, small dance floor. Tables consume most of the club. Good ratio of girls. 50-100 peso cover charge with no drink included? I forgot.

Club Echelon: I never got a chance to visit, but the locals tell me it’s the biggest hottest club in town. Upscale venue. Only open on weekends. From all the hype I hear about this place, I would say this would be your best night game spot.

[Image: club-echelon.jpg]


BARS:

801 Infinity Bar: Polo St. Next to Grid and Alcatraz. Ex-pat bar. 75% of the men there are ex-pats or foreigners. They have a live band. Old western theme bar. Some of the waitresses are hot. It’s a good place to start the night. Maybe give one of the waitresses your number and set up something on their day off.

Huckleberry Southern Kitchen & Bar: My favorite bar in Davao. Awesome date spot. I took my tinder date here and she loved it. Good place to have a chill night and drink.

[Image: Huckleberry.jpg]


SIGHT SEEING

Jacks Ridge Restaurant: This restaurant is on top of a hill that offers a good view of Davao. Good date spot.

Peoples Park: Cool park area in the city center. Nice place to take a stroll with your girl. A few monuments there that’s worth a photo.


MY EXPERIENCE

I enjoyed my time in Davao. Before Duterte became President, he was the Mayor here. He made sure that this city is the safest city in the Philippines. I would walk the streets of Davao at 3am and I never encountered a problem. Also, there is police/military posted on every street corner and they have round the clock patrols. There is no traffic, smoking in public is strictly banned, cost of living is cheap, there are no street beggars, no hookers or pimps pulling tricks on the streets. My first day here I matched this cute college girl on tinder and I spent my entire week with her. Expect to be popular on tinder here since only a few tourists visit Davao.

My ideal schedule would be:

Sunday - Thursday: Secure tinder/day game dates or follow up on day 2’s. If you cannot secure a date on those days, then night game is your only option. Try going to Grid or Alcatraz.

Friday - Saturday: Club Echelon or WAV. Try Echelon first.


CAGAYAN DE ORO


DURATION OF STAY

3 days


EXISTING INFORMATION

The only thread that has information about CDO. But it’s over 4 years old.

https://www.rooshvforum.com/thread-20905...an+de+oro


ACCOMMODATION

Red Planet Hotel: Cheap budget hotel but still one of the better hotels in the city. Not many AirBnB choices since it’s a small city. The location of the hotel is good since its next to the brand new SM Downtown CDO mall and the SM Premiere. But aside from that, it’s still a 2-star budget hotel. If there were better hotel or AirBnB options I would rather go for that.


TRANSPORTATION

Grab Taxi | Regular Taxi


ONLINE GAME

Tinder


DAY GAME

SM Downtown CDO Mall | Ayala Mall | Lifestyle District


NIGHT GAME

Cagayan De Oro is smaller than Davao. The nightlife is even more limited. Unfortunately for me I was here during the weekdays and it was summer break already for the universities. Many of the college girls went back to their province. So, my night life options were very limited. I think it will be better to visit when school is in session and on the weekends


CLUBS:

Pulse Live Music Venue: Super loud club can barely hear yourself think. Many of the locals come here. Crowded every day. Working class type of people. Watch out for hookers as I encountered a few asking for money. Hard press to find a normal girl here on the weekdays. Maybe on the weekends some normal girls come here. If not, you may have to try and shore one of these pros.

**Shoring or “shore” for short. Is a term, in which it means to convince a pro or freelancer to sleep with you for free**

Beat Club: Next to Pulse. Same type of crowd and vibe as Pulse. Watch out for hookers as well.

Kardinal: In the Lifestyle District. The Lifestyle district is a new and modern plaza that has many bars, restaurants and live band performances. Kardinal is the only club in the Lifestyle District, but it was empty when I was there. The staff tells me its better on the weekend and when school is in session. Hooray for me!

LIV Super Club: It was closed when I was there. Even though its closed on the weekdays. The locals told me it was closed down until further notice. The locals tell me that this club goes through many management changes. Which explains why it’s periodically closed for weeks or months. But when it’s open it’s open! The locals tell me it’s the biggest, nicest and most popular night club in town. Cebu also has a LIV club, located in Mandaue City.


BARS:

Somewhere Else Bar: Located near the Lifestyle District. This is my favorite bar in CDO. It was the best spot I could find on the weekday that had no pros. The first floor is a bar and the second floor is a small club. They play a good mix of old school hip-hop, Top 40, EDM etc… Good spot to start the night or the whole night for that matter. Good ratio of girls. Only issue is that it’s a small place. So even though there’s not a lot of people, it still feels suffocating because of how small the place is.

[Image: somewhere-else3.jpg]


The Gastropub: In the same building as “Somewhere Else Bar”. Chill restaurant/bar. Good for dates.


SIGHT SEEING

Vicente Dela Park: This park is in the city center. They have a big heritage monument that’s worth a photo op. Other than that, there’s really not much to see here. If you’re into white water rafting then you’re in luck. As Cagayan De Oro is known for its rafting.


MY EXPERIENCE

Due to my schedule, I was only able to visit CDO on the weekdays. Coupled with school being out of session and being in the city for 3 days. I didn’t have many options to go with. Tinder wasn’t as resourceful since many of the student were back in their province. Also, CDO is a small city so there’s not many profiles available to begin with. I got a few numbers from tinder, daygame and “Somewhere Else Bar”. But many of the girls were working on the weekdays or they would take forever to text back. Unfortunately, I struck out here. Next time I’ll go back on the weekend and when school is back in session. Hopefully you guys make good use of my intel and have better luck then me.

Knowing what I know now, and if I had 1 week to spend here. My ideal schedule would be:

Sunday - Thursday: Secure tinder/day game dates or follow up on day 2’s. If you don’t have any dates set up, then night game is your only option. Go to “Somewhere Else Bar” to start the night. If that place turns up empty, then “Pulse” is your last resort. You will most likely have to try and shore a girl there. But you may find a normal girl there. Maybe.

Friday - Saturday: LIV (If it’s open), Kardinal and Somewhere Else Bar.


CEBU


DURATION OF STAY

3 weeks


EXISTING INFORMATION

http://www.jakarta100bars.com/2016/12/ce...-bars.html: I really enjoy this guy’s website. I’ve referenced him in my Indonesia datasheets. He has a good night life list of Cebu that is current (2017).

https://www.rooshvforum.com/thread-3685....light=cebu:


ACCOMMODATION

Baseline Residences: I rented a studio apartment through AirBnB. The residence is really nice, safe, good view, modern and new. The host of the unit is really nice. It’s right in the heart of Mango Ave. You can walk to all the clubs there. If I were to stay in Cebu City again I would stay here. But I would also consider Mandaue City too


TRANSPORTATION

Uber | Grab


ONLINE GAME

Tinder | Filipino Cupid


DAY GAME

SM Seaside City Cebu Mall | Ayala Mall | SM City Cebu


NIGHT GAME

Many of the past datasheets about Cebu mentions Mango Ave, J. Ave Club, Alcohology Club. Well times have changed, as both J. Ave and Alcohology has closed down. J. Ave moved to Mandaue city and changed its name. They are now called “OQtagon by J. Ave”. But Mango Ave still has night life venues available. It’s just not what it used to be.


CLUBS:

OQtagon By J. Ave: In Mandaue City. Only crowded on weekends. Not worth going on weekdays as its empty. Really big club, upscale and new. Lots of Koreans and Japanese. No lady boys. Could be a few pros here since many Koreans and Japanese are the main visitors. But I never met a girl asking for money here. Good ratio of girls. I think it’s a 500 peso cover that includes 1 drink.

LIV Super Club: In Mandaue City. Crowded on weekends. Good ratio of girls. Not worth visiting on weekdays as it’s empty. Fairly big club like OQtagon but little smaller. Same kind of atmosphere though. Lots of Koreans and Japanese. I actually saw a few lady boys (I think) there so be careful. A few pros as well. 200 peso cover charge with no drink. Good ratio of girls. Only crowded on weekends

[Image: liv-superclub-cebu-cover.jpg]


ICON: In Cebu City. Medium size club. Good on weekends. Empty on weekdays. Middle class crowd. No Koreans or Japanese. Mainly local crowd. No lady boys. No pros. Good ratio of girls. 100 peso cover charge, I think that includes 1 drink…Not sure.

[Image: icon_h.jpg]


Club Holic: In Mango Ave. Medium size club. Really mixed crowd. Young, old, local, foreigner, ex-pats, tourists. A few gays and a few lady boys. But even with all these different kinds of people it’s still a fun club. People get down here and really go all out in dancing, drinking, smoking etc... Good size dance floor. I went here on a weekday and it was crowded. Weekends are even more crowded. Weekdays they have no cover charge. Not sure about weekends. Good ratio of girls. You just have to sift through the lady boys, old chicks and pros. Best spot on the weekdays

[Image: DSC06847.JPG]


Hype 2.0: In Mango Ave. Small size club. Really dark inside can barely see anything. Decent crowd. Okay ratio of girls. I just don’t like how dark it is inside. You have to be point blank to the girls face just to see what she looks like. No cover charge on weekdays. Not sure about weekends.


BARS:

Passion: In Mango Ave. Next to Club Holic. They have a live band every day. Chill atmosphere. Good place to start the night and it’s a good date spot too.

Sentral Bar And Lounge: In Mandaue City. Norkis Cyberpark. Medium size bar. I like it because it’s a new hip-hop bar. Only thing is that it gets really crowded on weekends. As in you can barely move inside. Good mix of locals and foreigners. Good ratio of girls. They have an outside lounge area which is pretty cool. Good setup to open girls. The inside of the bar gets so crowded that hanging outside is your only option really. I don’t know how it’s like on weekdays. No lady boys. No pros. No cover charge on any day.


SIGHT SEEING

Skydiving In Bantayan Island: Almost $400 USD. But it’s an awesome dive. The view of the tropical island is something else. You have to drive to the Hagnayan port. Takes about 2.5 hours in a car from Cebu city. Almost 4 hours in a bus. From there you have to take a ferry to Bantayan island which is about 1 hour.

Monastery Of The Holy Eucharist: In Sibonga. About 2 hours’ drive from Cebu City. A little longer if you take a bus. This place is pretty cool, it’s basically a castle turned into church. Good photo op.

Taoist Temple: Cool Buddhist temple. Definitely worth a visit. Good photo op.

Basilica Minore Del Santo Nino: Historic church that has a big courtyard that’s worth a photo. Also, Magellan’s Cross is right next to it.


MY EXPERIENCE

I really enjoyed Cebu. It offers the perfect mix of night life, tourist activities, girls and cost of living. But the traffic in Cebu is bad, not as bad as Manila or Jakarta. But still bad. One thing I noticed is that some of the night life is shifting towards Mandaue City. OQtagon, LIV and Sentral Bar and Lounge are in Mandaue. 2 of Cebu’s biggest clubs are in Mandaue (OQtagon, LIV). If this trend continues and more clubs and bars are starting to open in Mandaue. I would consider finding accommodation in Mandaue rather than Cebu City. If you’re not into night life then I would stay in Cebu City. But I don’t regret my decision staying in Mango Ave. It still has enough night life to make it worth staying in, and its right in the center of Cebu City. Especially on the weekdays, Mango Ave is basically the only night life option.

My first week there I went out almost every night. Went on a bunch of tinder dates. Brought back a different girl to my place almost every other day. But after going through the gauntlet of night game and tinder. I eventually settled on this one girl I met from tinder and spent the remainder of my time with her.

My ideal schedule would be:

Sunday - Thursday: Secure tinder/day game dates or follow up on day 2’s. If you can’t get a date lined up, then night game is your only option. Go to Club Holic and see where the night takes you.

Friday - Saturday: Any club or bar will be good. Try OQtagon or LIV first. If it’s not your vibe then Mango Ave is your next choice.


ANGELES


Normally I would not visit a city such as this, but I wanted to see if it was possible to lay girls for free here. As many of you know, this city is known as a sleazy sex tourism hot spot. The Philippine version of Pattaya, Thailand.


DURATION OF STAY

3 days


EXISTING INFORMATION

https://www.rooshvforum.com/thread-23425...geles+city: This is the only thread about this city.


ACCOMMODATION

Penthouse Hotel & Residences: I rented a room from AirBnB. The building is shared by hotel guests and residents who own condos. For the quality of the room, amenities and location. I would recommend staying here.


TRANSPORTATION

Grab


ONLINE GAME

Tinder


DAY GAME

SM City Clark


NIGHT GAME

There’s really only 3 places in Fields Ave where you can meet a normal girl. In the sense that it’s not a place where you pay the establishment for girls. That’s “High Society” “Sky Trax” “Rob’s Gastropub”


CLUBS:

High Society: Biggest nicest club in Angeles. I would say 75% of the girls here are working girls or freelancers. These girls come here after work if they didn’t find a client for the night. Which is why this place gets crowded at 2am, because most of the pay for play bars on Fields Ave close by 2am. The remaining 25% of the girls is what you want. These girls are a mix of foreigners, tourists, regular working professionals or college students. But even the non-pro girls can be a freelancer sometimes. They just want some extra money on the side. Also, many of the John’s like to take the girls they bar fined (girls that they paid for the night) here and party. I’ve had plenty of situations where I would approach a girl and she would tell me “sorry but I’m taken for the night”.

Every day this place is packed. They have a cover charge on both weekdays and weekends, with no free drink included. But the weekday cover charge is cheaper than the weekend. You have to approach like crazy to filter out all the pros. For me, I think it took the 10th approach for me to finally meet a girl who wasn’t working. She told she was a receptionist at a KTV bar, I don’t know if that’s true or not but I didn’t care. We talked, danced a little, drank a little and I asked her back to my place. She agreed and never mentioned money. The next morning, I was expecting her to ask for money but she never did. She called her friend to pick her up and she left.

Sky Trax: This is basically a smaller, lower quality version of High Society. Lots of Koreans go here. But to be honest, there’s tons of Koreans everywhere in Angeles. The music here is crazy loud, like your eardrums are about to explode. The same 75/25 ratio applies here as well.


BARS:

Rob’s Gastropub: This is the best normal club/bar I found. During the weekdays, it’s a regular bar. But on the weekends, it turns into a club and the ratio of pro and non-pro girls are better. I felt like it was the opposite ratio from “High Society” or “Sky Trax”, where it’s 75% regular girls and 25% pros. There’s a separate poker room connected to it called “Wild Aces Poker Room”. It’s a separate company but they share the same building. I would play there during most of the day and then go out at night.

[Image: Restaurants%2BPubs%2Band%2BBars%2Bin%2BA...2%2529.jpg]


SIGHT SEEING

Angeles Cockpit Arena: For those of you who are curious about seeing a cock fight. This is the place to go to watch these roosters fight to the death. They attach razor blades to its legs to make it more interesting. For those of you animal rights activists out there, I would give this place a pass.


MY EXPERIENCE

For me, I feel like a one-time visit of 3 days is the most I can handle. The pollution is really bad. The streets are dirty and crowded. There’s simply not much else to do here other than the night life. Luckily for me, I was able to occupy myself with poker during the day and going out at night. One night, I was walking along Fields Ave and one of the door girls from one of the clubs caught my attention. A door girl is basically a girl who wears club style clothes (short dress) and stands outside the girly bars trying to lure in customers. These girls do not wear bikini’s and they don’t get bar fined as much as the girls who work inside.

We started talking casually and she never really pressured me or tried to push me in her club. I can tell there was a mutual attraction between us. We exchanged numbers and I told her to text me when she’s off work. Sure enough, later that night she texted me that she was off. We met at Rob’s and had 1 drink. After that went we went back to my room and she never once asked for money. The next morning, we went out for breakfast and she paid for own meal. She was a kind girl. I can tell she hasn’t become jaded or hardened by the Angeles way of life. But for how long will she remain like this I don’t know.

My ideal schedule would be that to spend only 3 days here max. Preferably, come here on the weekends because even though Fields Ave is a seedy red-light district. It’s also the main nightlife area of Angeles. If you’re coming here from Manila, I would arrive here on a Friday and leave on a Sunday. Sunday is the best day of the week to drive in Manila as there’s no traffic.

Sunday - Thursday: Secure tinder/day game dates or follow up on day 2’s. If you can’t get a date lined up, then night game is your only option. Try and find the few non-pros at High Society, if that doesn’t work then try and shore one of the pros. Also, try the door girl approach. Find the one that you feel you have a good connection with. Exchange numbers. Wait till they get off work, take them to a regular bar (yes, they do exist even in Fields Ave) and then bounce them back to your room. If they mention money to you, tell them you don’t pay for that. If they persist then just leave them and find another girl.

Friday – Saturday: Go to Rob’s Gastropub as it was the best venue on the weekends that had more regular girls then pros. If any of you found another place that has regular girls, please feel free to mention it.


CONCLUSION

The Philippines is a very popular destination for men of all ages. Everyone speaks English, the weather is always warm/hot and the cost of living is cheap. But of course, it’s mostly about the girls. Manila gets the most attention as it’s the capital city with the best night life. But the traffic, lack of tourist attractions and the overall stress of navigating this city is daunting at times. I would highly recommend for you guys to explore the secondary cities of this country. Then go check out Manila and decide which city you like the most.

Till next time, Peace!

How did you write all this on a phone?

Have PI girls quality gone up in recent years with more modernization/nutrition/Dutertization?

Please rank cities by quality of girls & note any looks differences or do they all look homogenous wherever?

I wrote this on my laptop haha

Lots of western fast food chains here and I'm starting to see more chubby girls. But there's still enough thin/skinny girls to go around. More so than western countries that's for sure. Also, the option of riding a bicycle or walking is not great as the sidewalks are poor. The pollution is bad, especially in Manila. So that also also deters girls from walking outside.

Sorry brother but I don't do rankings. I just provide my observation, relevant resources and recommendations.

RE: Secondary Cities Philippines: Davao | Cagayan De Oro | Cebu | Angeles Datasheet 2017
I wouldnt say CDO is a "small" city I think its a million at least.

Ive heard cebu is just redic for getting new girls everyday.

im in . smaller much more relaxed good everyday living place that might not be the best for girls bc its small but it has the complete package (barely any traffic) (not so heavy pollution) and a decent food scene and some decent sized clubs.


I think the Phils is super underratted right now. I fell in love with this place but its not for every1 I would think

eidt/

theres a shit ton of expat old men in my city liking the living style

but the city is still small enough where a lot of people know your name (for better or for worse <mostly for better?) and wave at you in the street or call your name from afar. Its very charming and kind of like being on Cheers. Trikes are popular and are 10 cents to get around the city mostly (maybe up to 50 cents if your unlucky for distance). Im kind of a grouch sometimes for no reason, and Everyday I am reminded of how inspiring filipino people can be, they always smile at you here in my city and literally always would like to talk 99% of the time. They are genuinely so curious about you and where you come from and its never a fake interest they really are wondering. No one EVER scams you in my city which is great. I never watch my back here as it is extremely safe with tourist police (they dont do shit but they are here for added protection) but the vibe is very safe and I dont think much happens here. Smart phone instagram addiction is here but its limited bc the internet usually sucks so its so refreshing that mostly people will quickly put down thier phone and have a nice convo with you. I havent traveled a ton yet and im not slaying gals every night here but theres been enough of that and im looking for quality of quantity. There hasnt been that much reason to leave and I rather hunker down and work and infrastructure in this city is considered "good" by the countries standards.

hope this helps someone

Great report by Cool Runnings....I'll second the crumbling infrastructure and side walks being crap ONLY for Manila and outside Ayala St area..I was in Manila 8 months ago...for 10 days

Smog in Manila (and I smoke) ...coughed for weeks after I left (maybe had bad jet lag also)

Chicks not as amazed by foreigners (I did have some moments of fame?...but by old middle aged women smiling and saying stuff)

Traffic beyond horrible all diesel spewing.

Chick quality basically is what has already been stated ...in my case I had a Arbnb in a shit area (so I was cheap..shoot me!) next time pay more and stay around Ayala St area. (there's other areas of manila with good infrastructure/neighborhoods but ..too late to check them out)

I got so worried about the traffic and missing my morning flight to Guam I got another AirBnB closer to airport (pretty shitty infrastructure even around the airport)

Roaches everywhere I stayed....maybe it was just my luck

Bought some US $ from a money changer at airport...after check in...from a security guard!!!!..if you can believe it.

OH...took the PNL (Philipines National Railway) partway to AirBnB for airport...10 peso's......don't do it
Railway has no real schedule...they wait to see if a broken down diesel locomotive passes the station...then start selling tickets (100 degrees in a line up) because they hope the train returns going the other direction (crap shoot)
The train when it arrives...I got into the first car behind the locomotive...WRONG...the first two cars are only for women....of course I was promptly booted out ....men get "STUFFED" into cattle cars with no a/c too the point the doors can't even close ...but hey it only costs 10 pesos! and you'll lose 20 pounds in sweat.

Cebu trip for me coming up...just hoping for less smog...nothing more (well maybe less guards around with shotguns)...Glad to see Mango Sq...still has stuff to do around it.

Well I'm glad someone finally got some use out of my Angeles City data sheet, what a fucking dump. Nice trip report +1 from me.

God damned them all, I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold, we'd fire no guns-shed no tears, now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier, the last of Barrett's privateers!

Premium I had small roaches at my place to. I had to spray every nook and cranny but after I did that they never returned. I stayed in a decent building too.

I had none in bgc, but a couple small ones in makati. There are huge ones in puerto galera on the pavement above the beach close to town.

I stayed in Makati and saw no roaches in my apartment, did see a lot on the street but that's how a lot of Asia is from my experience.

I've never been to the Philippines. I know most of girls are mediocre but I've heard that higher end girls can be found in Manila if you know where to look and dress well.

Are there similar girls in some of these cities? Where do you find them?

Which city in the Philippines would be the best for higher end girls other than Manila?

Cool Runnings, +1 for all your datasheets, I especially like how you include links to other threads and websites like http://www.jakarta100bars.com/

Cockroaches - yes they are rampant in Manila (too), even in luxury condos. Especially the small ones. They just crawl in through the sink and shower drains.

Go to True Value (they have one in Glorietta next to the entrance to SM, and there's also one in Century Mall) and buy filters to cover the drain holes with. They cost pennies and come in a few sizes. Do not buy them at Ace as they cost 3 times more there.

You'll also need to spray since they usually already hide beneath the sink etc.

And... this will alleviate the problem, but it will not solve it. They'll still be coming.

The only real solution is to order fumigation for your unit.

If you're renting short term, ask the owner beforehand if the unit is fumigated ("no cockroaches"). Have it documented in your Airbnb conversation, so once the cockroaches show up you'll have a case for a refund if you want to leave early.

There's also the large flying cockroaches. These just come in through the window. So either keep your window closed at night or at the very least don't have a light on near the window.
