The Slums of Manila, Philippines  

The Slums of Manila, Philippines   | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it
The hidden side of the City of Manila
Dave Gatenby's insight:

No better quote can describe this experience than these sentences from the post ......... 
"As we left the slums and got back into the heavy traffic of Manila i no longer felt vulnerable. I looked at the streets in a different way. Now i didn’t see beggars or homeless people i saw hard workers and courageous parents. I wasn’t scared anymore, i felt calm inside and actually not shaken up or nervous but in awe of peoples determination to live and their ability to smile."

Backpacking Pilipinas: Calaguas: My Best Beach Experience Ever

Backpacking Pilipinas: Calaguas: My Best Beach Experience Ever | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

I wish not to see Calaguas suffering the same fate as those of other major destinations in this country. I don't want it to succumb to the perils of heavy influx of tourists: too much commercialism, over-development, noise and littering. I don't want it to be just like another Boracay, another Puerto Galera, another Anawangin.

PinoyMountaineer picks: Best hikes for beginners near Manila ~ Pinoy Mountaineer | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

Even though these mountains are relatively 'easy' and can be done by beginners, they should never be underestimated. Always be sure to orient first timers about the basic principles in mountaineering. Importantly, they should be told not to leave their trash behind. Before doing the hike make sure they have all the necessary gear, enough food and water, and even if it's a dayhike, make sure they have headlamps.

12 green spaces in Metro Manila you should go to now | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it
Go (coco)nuts! Share this story with your friends. These days, Metro Manila appears to be in a relentless pursuit to build more buildings and malls. Progress is good, but the huge appetite for urban space seems to overlook the need to develop more parks or conserve more open green spaces. Which is depressing when you consider how studies have long shown that parks and open spaces provide both health and economic benefits to a city and its people. There’s growing evidence that “proximity to parks
