What to do in Manila when you are not at the Convention

Though sometimes crowded, the LRT is often the fastest (and cheapest) way to get across the city—especially at peak times.

If you have the budget, you can hire a car and driver for the day. Most hotels will assist with this, and it can be relatively inexpensive for what is a luxurious convenience.

Try the food from the street stalls, especially in the afternoon, when there are a great many delicious “Merienda” (or light meals) available. Try Turon, Cassava Q, Bibingka…
