1000 Things To Do and See in the Philippines – Metro Manila 21-25
21. Check out the Malate Night Life. For years, Malate has been the favorite destinations of Night Owls. Malate and the nearby Mabini earned its reputation of being the red light district of Manila during the 70’s and early 80’s. Nowadays, the Nakpil –Orosa Street intersection still host interesting nightspots. You can catch a drag show and dance the night away at O-bar. Go clubbing at Bed at the Orosa Courtyard, and Chelu, or just simply have a beer or two at the many establishments along Nakpil. Café Adriatico is the only remaining landmark at the Remedios Circle and it’s worth a visit. Try the Hot Chocolate or the Suman sa Lihiya with Salabat after fun night out.
22. The Ortigas Area competes with Makati as a Business District. Giant Malls are side by side within Ortigas Center. Tiendesitas at the Corner of Julia Vargas and C5 offers a different shopping experience with their Native Pavilions housing a wide selection of clothes bags, jewelries, souvenir items and food.
23. Try out the Hydro Massage Pools of Ace water Spa. Now, they have two locations, one in Quezon City and their newest branch in Pasig. The water spa is a good refuge after a tiring day at work. The water from the indoor pool is temperature regulated so there’s no need to worry about the weather. Just make sure you bring your own towels and swimming trunks to avoid additional charges.
24. Try the Manila Bay Cruise. It’s an hour-long experience that gives you a different vantage point on appreciating Manila Bay. There are 3 scheduled trips, and the cruise includes a live band and a set dinner. Contact Sun Cruises for details.
25. Picnic at the La Mesa Ecopark. This is also in my wish list. I’ve heard a lot of fun things to do in this place and got excited by browsing thru their website. The park is divided into sections that include an adventure zone picnic ground, fishing lagoons, and a mountain bike trail. Also by visiting, we help save the La Mesa Watershed.
