Be prepared for an assault on the senses. Loud, dirty, polluted air and lots of poverty. Homeless children, families and pregnant women living under bridges. Don't forget to visit Smokey Mountain - real people living on a garbage dump, so cute.

I would say it is a very typical south east asian capital. DIrty, full of people and pollution... I still think it was a good decision to go there, as I got a sense of how real Asia was (not only the beautiful things you see in pictures). However, if you don't have much time, I would rather spend time in other places.

I m curently living in Manila and it s a wonderfull place if you love to discuss with nice people. Pinoys (filipinos) are amazing and always ready for a good joke, to help or to share a good meal. Once you visited Philippines, you might come back more often to discover the rest of the country (Rices terraces, White sand beach, Surfing spots and more !)
