I somehow survived two nights in Manila. I slept in an airport to save $$, got ripped off on a tuk-tuk tour, went to an international basketball tournament, hung out at a casino, and had a mural of Jackie Chan plastered to my hotel wall. Manila is very useful in the sense that it is STEP ONE to get to the other islands… but don’t spend too much time there.
**If you have had a good experience there please let me know.**
