Manila is a world of its own - hectic streets, local neighborhoods, children running wild and free! While I only had one full day to explore the city of Manila, I managed to fit a lot of action into 24 hours in the big city before heading up into the Northern Philippines.
I started my morning with a quick hostel breakfast (nothing to write home about!) and headed out on my own two feet to explore the city. Many visitors tend to just see Chinatown and Intramuros but while I was wandering around I saw a whole different side to the city of Manila - a vibrant and lively local Manila!
