Also known as Metropolitan Manila or the National Capital Region (NCR). Manila is the capital of the Philippines and where yours truly was born and have lived most of her life. Even if this is the most populated (and polluted) area in the Philippines, I still and will forever be indebted with this place. I was born here, grew up here and have learned a lot from here.
Being a Manileña, I was able to adapt myself in the fast pace of the metropolis. I have learned how to go about the place and got accustomed with dos and don’ts in the street, the traffic (and the flood). I became a street-smart, independent type of person which in one way or another has helped me with my travels in and out of the country.
Since this is the capital of the Philippines, there are a lot of things to do and see here. Aside from the historical places and churches, most of the business hubs are located here. Also, this is where most of the gigantic malls are situated as well as bar and restaurants that suits the interest of locals and tourists alike. Manila is like a one-stop shop that will certainly awaken your taste of excitement, relaxation and fun.
