Tips and tricks for visiting Manila

Travel safe

Manila is a developing city and certain parts of the city are prone to petty thefts. Try to stay within the tourist-friendly locations, watch out for your personal belongings in crowded, public places, and if you are out in the night, try to avoid secluded, unlit streets. Avoid drinking tap water and ice from street vendors. It’s best if you purchase bottled water at your hotel as well as when you move around exploring the city.
