John had booked us into an apartment for 4 nights as a …
Well we made it. The 13 hour flight from Toronto to Tokyo was LONG - imagine that. We fly into the sun so it never got dark the whole time. The TV's have improved so much - it made the flight go by at least that much quicker.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBoulevard Mansion Manila
Nice to have plenty of space and own kitchen, more like a mini apartment. Good location, nice view of Manila bay and very helpful and polite staff made our stay a good one. Not the cheapest place to stay, and rooms a little dated but comfortable and makes a nice change to just a hotel room.
