Customer Travel Tip: Keep a careful eye on belongings. Walking around really makes you appreciate where you come from.

Liked: We found the people here so nice!! We did a lot of walking around and yes there are many homeless people on the streets but hardly anyone begging. They just want to say hi. Still smart to take only what you need when going out but we were pleasantly surprised in comparison to what we have heard about Manila. The kids are so cute!

Disliked: Not much to do in the city. We spent more time playing with the homeless kids than anything else.
