Many hate it. Some tolerate it. But a whole lot simply love it here!
Manila has many sides to it...
The old Manila area has historic Intramuros and Luneta (shown in the pic) and Manila bay sunsets, Makati is the business district where you also find the hottest night spots and best places to shop, Quezon City has Eastwood which has now become the IT capital of the city, then there's Pasig, Ortigas Center, Greenhills, etc. All these are part of Metro Manila where you get the big city feel including traffic and pollution.
Come visit anyway. The longer you stay, the more you will see why those who've come and experienced it at its best, keep coming back.
