... Presidentof the Republic of Philippines.
After checking into my hotel i took a jeepney to The SM Mall Of Asia. Once the largest Mall in The Philippines (When it opened in 2006), now the third largest and conveniently located next to The Bay Of Manila. As you arrive at the Mall you are welcomed by a large steel framed globe on the roundabout at the southern tip of Epifanio de los ...
... his perfect white teeth and saying 'hiiiii' in this really surprised tone- we think he had a bit of a thing for jimmy- he liked what he saw on his drivebys haha. We're excited to get into seeing the islands- 1700 in Palawan alone, with over 7000 in the Philippines. The next day we found the Tao office in town and met an energetic kid called Jimboy.

This island is supposed to be very original, i.e. less developed with lots of untouched nature and very idyllic with lots of options for hiking, snorkeling, swimming and kayaking.

Central location if Malate is your style. Stayed in the dorm. 16 beds, try and get a top bunk so that you can feel the fans as the room is very hot. Lockers can be rented for 20 pesos a day, perfect for leaving things in Manila to be picked up on your next stop through!
