    Tag 29/30/31/32: Manila

    February 6, 2017 on the Philippines ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    _Tag 29_
    Flug von Puerto Princesa wieder nach Manila :D zurück im Hostel in Downtown Manila. Den restlichen Tag verbrachten wir relativ entspannt und genossen das Großstadt-Feeling inklusive Sonnenuntergang am Abend 😍

    _Tag 30_
    Shooppiiing 🤗 in der rieeesigen Mall of Asia.
    Nach dem erfolgreichen, aber anstrengenden Tag gingen wir mit unseren Philippinischen Freunden zum feiern und Bar-Hopping 🎉😊

    _Tag 31_
    Etwas müde aber weiterhin motiviert besichtigen wir "Intramuros", einen historischen Stadtteil mit einem sehenswerten Rizal Museum, und den Chinesischen Friedhof (der eigentlich mehr einem Stadtteil gleicht als einem Friedhof 🤔).

    _Tag 32_
    Letzter Tag auf den Philippinen!
    Packen, schreiben, lesen und noch einmal durch die uns mittlerweile bekannten Straßen Manilas schlendern...
    Wir besichtigten den Militärfriedhof, the "tomb of the unknown soldier" und besuchten gegen Abend das "Upside Down - Museum" - sehr cool aber sehr verwirrend 😂 und echt witzige Bilder!
    21 Uhr dann also unser Flug über Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) nach Chiang Mai (Thailand).

    Manila to Dasmarinas

    April 14, 2018 on the Philippines ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    After a 12 hour long haul to Hong Kong, a short layover just enough for a coffee, and then a short hop of 1:30 to Manila, Phillipines.

    Unpacked and assembled the bike inside the terminal building, supervised by a very curious security policeman. Next challenge was to navigate away from the airport, and then find accommodation.

    Compared to 8 day endurance events, this is a different skill set negotiating the traffic. I'm now 30km outside Manila but the traffic is still hectic.

    Manila, Philippines

    February 27, 2014 on the Philippines ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    We left Airlie Beach and made a brief stop, anchored off Cairns to allow Australian Customs / Immigration officials to embark, do their work and disembark and then we headed north to The Philippines. On the way we had an extraordinary day. The sea was flat calm and bright blue. Slowly it turned to turquoise and then a bright green before turning to silver in the evening. It was a spectacle that amazed all the passengers. We headed to the northernmost point of Australia before turning west into the Torres Straits with Papua New Guinea on the starboard side. We sailed past Borneo before passing through the Sulu archipelago, the southernmost region of the Philippines. We arrived in Manila at 8am and it was 28C. We were given a wonderful welcome by a large band of musicians playing on the quayside and locals dressed in colourful costumes. We had booked a tour to see old Manila and off we went, firstly to St Augustin Church, a UNESCO world heritage site, which was a lovely building, richly ornate. We then visited the Casa Manila, a house furnished as it would have been in the C16th. We saw Fort Santiago and the tropical gardens and then Rizal Park, a large park named after Dr Jose Rizal who had been executed by the Spanish in the 1890s for rebellion. Lastly, we went into the Hotel Manila for some rest. A beautiful hotel! As we left the quayside in the ship, a large band was playing. We had a most friendly welcome and departure!Read more

    November 9, 2016 on the Philippines ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Onze laatste drie dagen in de Filippijnen hebben we in Manila doorgebracht. Vanuit Coron hebben we een ferry gepakt op zondagmiddag en maandagmorgen waren we in Manila(een ferry met bedden). Hier sliepen we in een geweldig mooi appartement, wat was aangeboden door mijn werk! Manila staat bekend als een gevaarlijke en vieze stad, maar de wijk waar wij verbleven was echt vet. Het Manhattan van de Filippijnen! Alles netjes en schoon, mooie winkels, veel restaurants, een heerlijke foodmarket, echt een aanrader. We zijn ook nog op bezoek geweest bij ITSM, een zusterbedrijf van mijn werk. Erg leuk om iedereen een keer in het echt te zien, want deze collega's sprak ik normaal alleen per mail of telefoon. Al met al was Manila een (onverwachte) heerlijke afsluiter van geweldige weken in de Filippijnen! Wil je zon, zee, strand, lagoons, watervallen, prachtige omgevingen en top duiken? Dan moet je hier zeker naar toe!Read more

    Manila, Philippines

    November 23, 2009 on the Philippines ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Hello Philippines! We are blessed that when we go to the motherland, our family is there to come "home" to with a driver and a beautiful house for us to stay in. Auntie Arlene, Kheem and Kheyt have always spoiled us whenever we're there. Our first stop after a long flight? A full body massage at the spa of course! That's what gets us through a long flight actually, the rewards of a 2 hour pampering after. :) The last picture was Auntie Arlene's awesome bird, Basilica. She had an amazing ability to copy things that Auntie Arlene would say. Hahaha.Read more

    Manila, Philippines

    November 24, 2009 on the Philippines ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Family time! The only reason Filipinos go to Philippines. Lol. We visited with our amazing family (those that are with us and no longer with us). That first pic is Jaime and Jayden visiting Jaime's grandma who passed away the year prior to our visit. I love the fam! By this time, we've already eaten lots, drank lots of chuckie chocolate milk, and hung out at Mall of Asia.Read more

    Manila, Philippines

    December 5, 2009 on the Philippines ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    The party aftermath - majority of us woke up in Auntie Arlene's suite even though we all had our own rooms! Hahaha. We had a lovely room service breakfast as a family, recovering and reminiscing about the previous night's events. We then checked out of Shangri La Hotel and went to Dampa for lunch. It's pretty much a market where you're greeted with stalls after stalls of fresh seafood. We picked out what we wanted for lunch, took it to one of the restaurants there and then they cooked it for us in whichever way we requested. Delicious!!!!Read more
