Having been working in the Phiippines for 5 weeks and being stuck in Makati I was desperate to find the real Manila.And its not easy to find.
I did the "Lapu Lapu" tour combining both the "Binondo Food Wok (walk) in the morning and the "Intramuros" half day tour in the afternoon. Be prepared for a Chinese feast and don't have breakfast. Ivan knows his stuff and is very knowledgeable and takes great pride in his Chinese heritage and its importance to modern day Manila. In the afternoon it was simply myself and Hanson and he was kind enough to deviate from the planned itinerary and was very excited to show me HIS Manila. And for this I will be eternally grateful. Taking in Intramuros , the old walled city and the hi-lite St Agustin Church. In my opinion the number one attraction for those visiting Manila. It was afterwards with a number of rides/transfers on a 'Jeepney" I was able to visit "Quaipo and Santa Cruz" and experience some of the street life in this huge bustling and often confusing city. Thanks Guys.
