I'm going to be in Manila for a few days at the end of February. If anyone is wanting to get together then, that would be awesome! I'm getting married to a Filipina in April and we are going to be in Manila Feb 23-25 to take care of some of the items at the US Embassy. She's not met any VT'ers yet and I thought Manila could be a good place to introduce her to the awesome people here on VT... :D
Feb 23rd (saturday) is probably the best day for us so if anyone's interested, let me know! (If there's interest I'll post a meeting if no-one else beats me to it.)
Hello dear friends!
Does anybody know where can we find local dairy products (either carabao or cow) of reasonable price (not like Mr Moo in Tagaytay). I can move to almost any place within Metro Manila. About 2 months ago there were such products in Robinson's and in ShopWise, but no more. They told me that at palengke we can find only early in the morning because the sellers do not have ref, is this info correct? Any manufacturer's names and addresses?
We want to travel from Manila airport to Tagaytay and stay two nights. Can anyone suggest a travel agency that can help us?
We need hotel and travel package for a couple.
My boss's parents are coming to Manila and is planning for a 4 days trip to Banaue from June 30 to July 3. I am looking for a private car with a driver who possesses considerable experience motoring throughout the mountain province and familiar with places of interest and scenic beauty.

We need a reliable and safe but not expensive as Avis and Nissan. I would appreciate if you could give me other recommendation. Thank you all in advance.

I'm an American backpacking around Asia, and I am currently in Cebu. After my time in Philippines is over, I'd like to travel to China. Does anyone know if it is possible, and easy, to get a China Tourist Visa from the Chinese Embassy in Manila? The Embassy website says it's do able, but are there any special rules like: Me being a permanent resident of the Philippines, or having to have a letter from someone in China - that kind of "special rule." Additionally, I'd like to be in Manila as short as possible; I all ready travelled to Manila, so would expedited passport handling (rush processing) actually work. Do travel agencies in Manila have Visa services? Please help.

I have to travel to Manila, Phillippines.
Following are the details of my flight:
1. Kolkata to Singapore by Air India. I would reach S'pore at about 4 AM.
2. Thereafter, I have a separate flight (NOT connecting, booked separately) at 10 AM to Manila.
I am yet to book tickets and need help with some queries.
1. Do I need to take transit visa when I land in S'pore so that I can catch my flight to Manila?
2. If yes, how long does the procedure take?
3. How much does S'porean transit visa cost?
4. Are there an inherent issues in booking separate flights? fyi - iam going with separate bookings because it is turning out to be a lot more cheaper than connecting options.
Any other issues that I should care about. Thanks in advance.....
Are there any good Cabaret / Variety shows or nice relaxing acoustic bars in Manila that my wife and I could go and see? (Chicago. Burlesque or Moulin Rouge type)
Our friends have made a few suggestions like Club Mwah, Jools, etc but we are NOT interested in Bakla shows or places which are just a front to brothels/bar girl places. Our friends took us to 22nd St Comedy Bar up on Marcos Highway but I got angry at the bakla's on stage suggesting what they would like to do to me in the CR. Disgusting!
I'm told that Hobbit House could be worth a look.
Please help. There must be somewhere nice for a family or couple to enjoy in this huge city!

Hi VT members @ The Philippines...
I read about the recent hostage drama that happened in Manila. I will be traveling to Manila for my long planned holiday in the next few days....as a tourist! May I ask how is the current situation in Manila? Is it ok to travel there now? I read so much about Intramuros and I am looking forward to my visit there....until I read about the unfortunate event! :(
I'm going to Manila on Friday for just a short stop, then heading to Puerto Princessa for a couple of days and back to Manila - what area should I be staying in, and any hotel recommendations?
Also in the near future I'm considering spending a longer time there, so have a few questions related to that. (Probably end of this year)
1. How much should I be budgeting, to rent a condo on a monthly basis? Will be probably taking out a 3 month contract.
2. Any problem renting a condo on a tourist visa? I have no problem to renew, or enter/exit to get further 30 days entry if required.
3. I need a reliable internet connection to allow me to work from home for an overseas company - I'm guessing this wouldn't be a problem if I'm staying in the Makati area?
Thanks in advance for any advice !
