All prepared for your next great escape? Ensure you don't miss out on any action in Manila by brushing up on a few things about it before you head off.
If you weren't aware, this lively city is the capital of Philippines.
With plenty of things to do in this corner of Luzon, it's easy to understand why 1,600,000 people choose to call it home.
It's not every day you take a vacation, so why not indulge in a little luxury? The Raffles Makati (1 Raffles Drive, Ayala Center) and the Makati Shangri-la Hotel, Manila (Ayala Street and Makati Avenue) are some of the top upmarket properties in Manila. That being said, you don't go on vacation to stay in your room all week. If you're searching for a more economical option, think about the Agustina Apartments (9 18 St. Kalusugan) or the Eurotel Makati (Chino Roces Cor. Arnaiz Avenue).
So many places to see and so little time. If you're keen to experience what the city has to offer, add the Baywalk and San Agustin Church to your travel itinerary. If you have an extra day to spare, stop by Ayala Center and Rizal Park as well.
