I recently spent two weeks in Manila for work. I had to work US hours (10pm-6am in Manila) which means I got very little sleep but was able to explore the surrounding areas during the day with my boyfriend (who tagged along to keep me company). If you’re headed to Metro Manila yourself, here are some of my favorite things to eat and do from those two weeks!
During my work trip to Manila, my boyfriend and I did a weekend getaway to Boracay. Boracay is best known for their beautiful white sand beaches and if this place isn’t on your travel list, it should be! We spent most of our weekend walking along the beach, exploring one station after another. And at night, we wandered under a blanket of bright stars. My highlight was definitely snorkeling in open water and seeing all the colorful fishes. For me, snorkeling here was better than in Hawaii!
