Customer Travel Tip: Travel outside rush hours. Use jeepney for simple journey and avoid the city trains. Plan what to do and don't stay too long.

Liked: Manila is the chaotic capital of the Philippines. Escape the noise in Intramuros, and enjoy the A/C of the two museums when the outside world becomes too much.

Disliked: In the tourist areas you will be pestered by touts. Outside those areas and there's not much else to see.
