"I was only two days in manila..." Philippines Favorite Tip by Carlo-B.

Philippines General: 221 reviews and 248 photos


Favorite thing: I was only two days in manila and in my opinion it needs no more than that to see what there is to see. The city has not highlights with the sole exception of intramuros which is the old spanish town with part of its walls still in their places.
One our from manila there's the hideen valley which i liked very much. Those are natural clear water sources in the middle of the jungle. Ther is a nice resorts (but very simply one) near to those springs. One of the most famous higlights of Luzon (the island where Mnaila is) are the rice terasses in North Luzon. It take 10 Hours by car to go there and 10 H to come back to manila so you have to consider 2-3 days only to see that. It worths anyway because they are unique. Then Philippines are very famous because of their sea. Clear water and super reef for divers. So if you go to japan or to china and then you want to enjoy a tropical paradise, you're surly right in the filippines.
There is to possibility: The first one ist to go to the famus isalnd of Boracay. The very best beaches are maybe there. There is super resost there (but without electricity9 which is called the frida^y beach resort.
Another way to enjoy the see is the romatic badian island, very near (10 min. by boeat) th the coast of cebu. Ther is a vera confortable resort there, called 'the badian island beach resort' absolutely the best for pure relax. From there u can easiliy go diving. I had my best diving rigt there.
