Health and the Weather, Manila: 13 reviews and 7 photos

During the wet season, please make sure you're equipped with insect repellant. Unfortunately, when too much water stays inland and leaves stagnant water, it becomes the perfect breeding ground for the mosquitoes that carry Denggue Hemorrageic Fever. It's not a joke to have it. I've had it once several years ago and I was delirious with 41C fever for days and needed a blood transfusion. It's scary, but it can be avoided so don't let it stop you from visiting the tropics.
