I visited the city of Manila in May 2006 to attend working meeting and took the opportunity to visit this interesting city and surroundings such as Tagaytay and Villa Escudero thanks to arrangements by Cielo (VT member jasmine_trias). In Nov 2007, I went to Manila again to attend another meeting and managed to visit the Makati area as well as go for a day trip to Corregidor Island thanks to advice from Jing (VT member yellowbell).
The visits to Manila were enriching experiences for me, especially learning about the history, culture and some major attractions here. Let me share with you the experiences and photos of my trip, which hopefully will be useful to you.
The Philippines Airlines is the national carrier and one of its planes is shown here at the Ninoy Aquino Airport, which is the major national airport in Manila while the domestic airport is a short distance away.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Cielo (VT member Cielo_Algaeed) and the staff of her former tour company, Regent Travel (http://www.regenttravel.com.ph) for helping me to organise my enjoyable land trip in the Philippines. Besides Manila, I also visited Tagaytay, Talisay, Taal Lake & Volcano as well as Villa Escudero. All these places are featured in my VT Tagaytay, Talisay and Quezon province pages so do drop by to have a look.
