6 Interesting Tours to Take In Metro Manila

Whenever I tell friends who are not from here that I live in Metro Manila, the capital of the Philippines, the first sentence out of their mouths is usually something around the lines of, “How do you survive the traffic?” (Answer: I work from home and try not to go anywhere during rush hour). Their second question usually is, “So what can I do there? I’m headed to [insert one of our many beach paradises here] and will be in Manila for a day or two.
