While we are still here… we might as well enjoy and bank on the memories with the family and friends that we left here when I migrated in New Zealand and now as ex-pats in Abu Dhabi and at the moment staying in the Philippines. I say I am lucky to experience different “World” for a longer period.
Come with me and enjoy the sites here around Manila and I hope you will appreciate it the way we do. Please click the photos to enlarge.
THE FAMOUS VGC @ BGC – This is where most ex-pats and tourists stay for a longer period. VGC stands for Venice Grand Canal @ BGC means Bonifacio Global City and someone told me that this is the 2nd place in the world who is allowed to copy the famous Venice Canal in Italy which we also visited last year August and hope to post about Italy after completing some backlogs. Update: Click the link Venice to go there.
AYALA MUSEUM in Makati – I always passed this place every time we go shop or explore Makati by foot, and this time we really plan to come here and spent half of the day here. Actually, we didn’t finish checking about history unfortunately and it’s near 7pm when we departed this place and we go hunt for some food to eat.
SOFITEL HOTEL & RESORTS, MANILA – We spent our wedding anniversary and Christmas here. It’s a relaxing place and looked luxuriously homey when you sit with those many comfort sofas around the bar and the piano. It’s also a resort so the whole family can enjoy. Just check the photos!
NUVALI PARK @ Nuvali Sta.Rosa, Laguna – It’s only 1 hour and a half away from Makati or Manila and depends on the traffic and highways or shortcut you’re in you can make it within an hour if you are lucky by car otherwise going here by public transport it’s best to get to Alabang and just 30-45mins you are already there using a white van at the side terminal before you reach the South Station. Just ask around no worries! It only cost P50 pesos per person. Very affordable.
There are some more places to go to around Manila for sure and some I already covered in my previous posts aside from added photos that I shared here. If you are looking for some nightlife… yes Manila has it all but sorry I don’t cover it. If you are looking for some shopping destinations, Manila has hundreds of big malls everywhere you go and lot’s of restaurants that are affordable too and some pop-ups food stalls.
Thanks for reading and hope you could check my older post in other parts of the World.
