Manila American Cemetery and Memorial

Reviewed By Mika E - Tornio, Finland

I have visited few times in Manila American Cemetery and Memorial. There are many walls of drawings, where is possible to see and learn, what happened during the war. The walls are also full of soldiers names, who died in the war. Place is also very beautiful and worth of visit.

Greenbelt Park

Reviewed By tommomelbourne - Melbourne, Australia

This park is beautiful and well maintained and located between Greenbelt 3 and Greenbelt 4 and 5.
Its a beautiful piece of greenery is one of the most populated cities in the world. Love water features compliment this park.
I did notice in the middle of this park there seems to be a smoking area. Not sure if it is official and unofficial but smoking should not be allowed here at all. As a non smoker it stank and I had to hold my breath as I walked past.

Ace Water Spa

Reviewed By LoviAlterado - Pasig, Philippines

We went here with my family last January 2018 since we all need a spa treatment but we opted for hydrotherapy this time. The staffs were all helpful and accommodating. We have tried all the amenities and boy it was all worth the money.
The water in all amenities were lukewarm. Me and my son loved the Lazy River where we just float on the foam while cruising the "river"
There are instructions for you to read. It includes the time for each area so you won't get muscle sore if exceeded.
Also tried their Sauna and Hot Herbal pools. It was all relaxing.
Some people talk loud but you can not hear them too much because of the sound of the water machine and the water too.
They are strict with proper attire so please double check their website for more info. They also offer swimwear rentals. We rented a trunks for my brother for Php 200.00

To sum it all up, it is must visit hydrotherapy massage spa for me and my family. You should try it too.

Greenhills Shopping Center

The perfect place for bargain shopping. You can shop for shoes, clothes, toys, and even car accessories and electronics!

Reviewed By tommomelbourne - Melbourne, Australia

We are regular visitors to Manila and my wife insists we visit this market when in Manila.
She spent some time buying clothing gifts and shoes for our children. She also bought some of the latest "after market" Nike "Air" shoes. Price was probably 20% of what we would pay in Australia and the shoes were of great quality.
I spent some time on the electronics floor buying phone covers, blue tooth speakers etc.
On the same floor as the electronics was a great massage shop where I had a pedicure, manicure, foot scrub and a massage. Price for the lot was under 1000P.
Enjoyable and safe market/shopping centre in air conditioning.

San Agustin Museum

Reviewed By Joan0452013 - Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

For a small fee we gained access to a wealth of information on the role of the Augustinians in bringing Catholicism to the Philippines and to Manila in particular.
The exhibits are housed in rooms off the cloisters surrounding a large, peaceful courtyard. The former Sacristy, for example, where priests used to dress for Mass houses enormous and beautifully carved chests of drawers that were one used to store vestments; the former refectory where the priests shared communal meals has a long table set for a meal as well as other related exhibits.
The walls of the cloisters contain murals and paintings. Temperature-controlled galleries house precious religious exhibits such as statues and richly embroidered vestments all of which are carefully documented or labelled.
Information boards tell the story of the monastery through fires, earthquakes, pilfering by the British and the destruction incurred at the hands of the Japanese and the United States during World War11.
One could spend hours here.

Entertainment location in an Singapore-ish environment. Many high-end hotel brands are here, amongst a huge residential community. Bonifacio High Street and Market Market are the centre of it all. Some secret bars (entrance within a convenience store) and disco hangouts here too.

A good place to get out the noise and dust of the Ortigas area. Cafe and small restaurant are good for a relaxing meal. for example Wild Flour.
