... just so kind and thoughtful. They had to be somewhere in the evening so we went for a walk around the city and got some food (in case you're wondering, yes it was awful).
On our second day in Manila, we ventured to a dive shop in Makati. It had been reviewed well and Dave had a big list of things here wanted to buy. He managed to get everything for half the price it is in England so he was happy. After a successful morning, we decided to get a taxi to ...
... and we trapse off round the park, which in all fairness is reasonably lovely. There are people selling kebabs with cheese for 80p, (I dont buy one here either) and hats depicting the minions from despicable me. I am very tempted to buy one as they are very silly. The whole park is centered by a giant fountain, in which the are some people are washing, wading and swimming. There's also a bunch of busts/statues of important Philippinos. More finger up nose shots and there's ...
... guess. Anyways, lunch. Lunch was buffet style and included paella, roasted potatoes (for the carb loving girl in me), buttered vegetables, barbecue chicken and beef stew... all very delicious! We continued on our tour after lunch and saw some of the destroyed barracks. Random story, but so typical Ellaine... she kept talking about the barracks and of course she had this Filipino accent so I could understand where some may not have understood what she ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsMakati Apartelle
Make sure to print a map before getting in the taxi. We spent almost 2 hours in a taxi. The manila drivers will try to fix a price (never in your favor) so get the meter running, and make sure he actually knows where it is.
The place it self, is nice and clean, but the neighborhood is dirty and unattractive. As a turist you get a lot of unwanted attention in the streets around the Makati Apartelle, and it's difficult to get a cap.
The rooms are nice and big. It's actually a small apartment rather then a room. That said it's to expensive, the location considered.
Nice place. Bad location.
