Customer Travel Tip: Use as a hub.

Liked: I wasn't visiting Manila as a holiday maker or back-packer, I was simply passing through, so cannot comment on what Manila has to offer. It's a fine enough city though I prefer Davao by a long way.

Customer Travel Tip: Confirm price before taking public transport, bargain lots when you meet tricycle drivers, sometimes they even raise price 10times higher like 200piso then you can even bargain to 20 piso.... It is rediculous. Any quetion just ask security people they are very nice and more helpful for information, and safe also.

Liked: foods, shopping, people

Disliked: public transport is not convinient, no bus and taxi or tricycle drivers always barginning or ask for tips without good service, raise price when you ask price. lots people wandering on street or stay on street and like to beging for money or foods, esp. their childs. Some adults just asking for money directly when they saw a tourist coming through... it made us feel not conformtable.
