Our trips to Manila almost felt like visiting three totally different countries, the madness of Intramuros, the calm and history of Corrigador and finally we visited Makati, which was totally different again.
This is also my final post for our trip to The Philippines! It's now been a few months since we took this trip, but I still find myself thinking about The Philippines quite often, I think I said in one of my earlier posts The Philippines is probably the most challenge country I've visited and I've traveled quite a lot through South East Asia. The divide between rich and poor is so striking and the country has been so much turmoil. In fact my earliest memories of The Philippines was hearing about the horrible things that were happening there on the news when I was a child (during Fernando Marcos presidency).
I feel like I learnt so much during our trip and its a really amazing country to visit, I would love to go back again soon and visit some of the other islands. Also I have to say the Filipino people are so damn nice and so willing to share their history - even the painful and difficult parts. If you have a chance you really should visit, I'm so glad I went and I really want to go back, but next time for maybe a month or more.
