Philippines 2012

Biz trip to Metro Manila in Aug 2012...



Airline: Cebu Pacific Air (personally, it's a disaster)
Accomodation: Somerset Olympia (Makati City)
Places visited: Intramuros (Fort Santiago, San Agustín Church, Manila Cathedral), Resorts World Manila, Manila Ocean Park, Binondo (Chinatown)

Unfortunately, Manila was a boring place for me personally. It falls short on sightseeing destinations and food variety/quality (one of the rare asian cities that does not have their own distinctive "national" food). Accomodation was sub-standard and flight experience was quite horrible for me.
