    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Manila is so commonly criticized, you could be forgiven for deciding to give it a miss and heading straight off to the islands. Most of the criticisms are true: it is shambolic, corrupt, polluted and startlingly busy, but to leave it at that is to tell only half the story. Put aside all the negatives, and you’ll find a city that’s collection of tiny towns feel gives it a ‘just let me look around one more corner’ feeling, and despite the fast-pace, it’s a great place to relax.

    Put aside the sprawling concrete-jungle mass of the whole, and focus instead on the individual districts and you’ll soon start to feel the love. The sights here are invariably astonishingly quirky, like the Coconut Palace, built for the Pope’s visit several decades ago (he refused to stay), which is built entirely out of coconut shells and palm wood, oddly mixed with 24-carat gold bathroom fixtures.

    The modern, stone version if Intramuros (Manila’s fortified city) date back to the 16th century, and can be accessed via seven impressive drawbridges, while the Spanish fort of Santiago now lies in ruins, and has become a city park where the Japanese massacred prisoners and drowned them in the flooded dungeons during World War II.

    Malate is the place to go for Manila’s vivacious bar hopping scene. From seedy girlie bars to rooftop beer fests, there’s not much in the way of alcohol-based carnage you can’t find in Manila, and plenty are here just for the party. If you prefer to relax, shop for knock off souvenirs in the bubbly markets, grabbing bargain DVDs and perfume to try and sneak back through customs.

    Manila occasionally finds itself at the heat of some torrential flooding, which - though for tourists who have a bit of money to escape – is more of an inconvenience than a serious danger, but can certainly destroy your holiday. Time your visit to avoid the floods, though, and you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the vibe of this pleasant city shambles.

      • Makati
        The City of Makati, or simply Makati, is one of the cities and municipalities that make up Metro Manila or the National Capital Region of the Philippines. It is the major financial, commercial and economical hub in the Philippines.

        Makati came from the Tagalog word kati, which means tide. This primarily refers to the rise and ebb of the tide of the Pasig River on the city's northern border. The city was also known as San Pedro Macati during the Spanish era.

        Makati is also noted for its highly cosmopolitan culture, also being a major cultural and entertainment hub in Metro Manila. This is where you can find all the posh malls offering signature brands and vibrant nightlife.

        Today the city is one of the most modern cities in the country and the Philippines' major global economic competitor in Southeast Asia. However, it faces challenges due to the disparate gap between the new city in the west, which contains the Central Business District, and the old city in the east, which is largely poor and where most of the city's slums are located.

        Makati has the tallest skyscrapers in Metro Manila. Also, this city is the first to test the hybrid bus services and e-jeepney.
