When leaving Ninoy Aquino International Airport, we suggest taking a yellow metered taxi. The white coupon taxis were charging exorbitant prices. For example, a white coupon taxi driver told us it would cost 550 pesos to get to Makati even though their huge fare charge quoted a price of 350. Riding the yellow metered taxi, we paid less than 300 pesos!

We pre-booked our three-night stay at Prince Plaza II through Agoda. Our first room looked nothing like the photos on Agoda. When we asked reception about the discrepancy, they told us that only some of the rooms had been remodeled. We later moved to a remodeled room, which was more comfortable. The location is the saving grace of this property; it's right in the heart of Makati, a bustling business district.

On day one, we went to Greenbelt and Green Hills Shopping Center. Greenbelt is literally right next door to Prince Plaza II. It's an upscale complex consisting of five connected shopping centers. It's filled with great restaurants. We highly recommend the fruit shakes at Maman and the brunch and desserts at Bizu Patisserie!

Green Hills looked and felt like an indoor market. While Greenbelt was upscale, Green Hills seemed to be the place to go for good deals. Tim scored a new dry bag there!

We had hoped to do something outdoors on our second day in Manila, but the rain kept us inside. We spent the ENTIRE day in Mega Mall! Of the three malls we visited, Mega Mall was our favorite. In addition to clothing stores, restaurants and a cinema, it also has a bowling alley, ice skating rink, hair salons, art galleries and more! It was truly MEGA.

Thank you for watching!!

Happy travels!
