- Bangkok - Manila:
Philippine Airlines -
sometimes there are problems to book tickets with non-Philippine credit cards
on the Internet portal. Try to book in normal travel agencies or in the city
offices of Cebu Pacific.

Sight Seeing: There are some sights in Manila, but we have been only three days in Manila.
- Chinese Cemetery of Manila:
This cemetery is the biggest one and the second oldest of all cemeteries of Manila. It is like a small town inside the big town with an own history.

- Mall of Asia:
This shopping mall was the world wide biggest a few years ago. If you need equipment for your journey or something for anything, you will find it here. You will find as well a lot of entertainment possibilities (IMAX cinema!),
restaurants with international delicious cuisine, different beauty and wellness salons. It is not really a sight, but we spent our last entire day in Manila inside this shopping mall - it is quite easy to waste time in a pleasant way... ;)

- We were accommodated in Manila in the The Townhouse Hotel Manila.
There are totally different opinions regarding this hotel. It is a small and cheap accommodation (650 PHP), which is located a little bit hidden
in a very small side street of the Roxas Boulevard. Our opinion is: It is cheap and very close to the Manila Airport. The personal is friendly and willing to serve.
But if you have a special requirement at comfort, do not book this hotel. The rooms are small, noisy and equipped with old furniture. The electrical equipment is not
really on the state of the art. Earplugs for the night are recommended! Free WIFI is available... But we had much fun with the staff.
Ask for Jocelyn "Joyce" Samaniego - she is the soul of this hotel and will organise everything for you...!
