    I'm planning to go to China for four days at 추석(Korean holiday). Are there any recommendation? I like forest, calm place or water fall. Thx

    Suzhou... Beautiful gardens and rock formations, it's where IM Pei was born and thus is his inspiration for most of his architecture. His personal museum is located in that area as well. over 8 years ago

    what is a good hotel in Kowloon, that doesn't have minute sized rooms, and is relatively up to date, maybe redecoratedetc.

    I normally stay at Mira, Prince or Marco Polo, but they're bit pricey. Try Luxe Manor or Hotel Benito ... both are boutique hotels and relatively cheap. Clean to say the least :) over 8 years ago

    What are the best places of interest in Singapore? Like tourist spots, museums? Or what places shouldn't be missed by a tourist?

    For boutique shops with interesting local finds try Ann Jiang Hill which is near Maxwell Road (near scarlet hotel) which is also where you'll find the Bourdain approved Hainanese Chicken rice at Tian Tian. over 8 years ago

    How safe is Manila?

    Avoid Malate. Unless your looking for a cheap lay or gay bars. Makati or Greenhills is generally safe... Or at least as safe as city can be :) over 8 years ago

    What to do/see in Manila in one afternoon/evening?

    Like Erika mentioned Celdran tours are really your best bet if your looking for culture. However, if you're looking shopping, try Greenhills, they sell real pearls that are great for gifts as well as other things and get ready to bargain. It's like an indoor Camden market but cheaper and minus the punks. For night life, local clubs such as Opus, Attica or Republiq are great for dancing and listening to loud pop/techno music. But if your looking to hear local bands and mingle with the artist community, try Saguijo or the Collective in Makati, San Antonio village area ... ah, and to hang with local directors, musicians and comic book lovers, try Mogwai at Cubao X in the Araneta area. If your looking for midnight eats, try Mercato market in Fort Bonfacio, Taguig, open fridays and Saturdays, 10pm to 2 am. As a local, I avoid Malate and Greenbelt (specifically Cafe Havana during Fridays or Saturday's-- anywhere else in the mall is fine though) because it's a tourist's area and generally riddled with prostitutes ... sad to say. Though Greenbelt 5 during the day houses the most posh of our local brands, such as the Celestina bags which are sold in Barney's, which anyone should definitely check out if you have cash to burn. Greenbelt 4 is also connected to Ayala museum, which is a nice museum to visit especially when the have special exhibits. Please do try to get a massage while in Manila. It's around £10 for an hour and a half, which is dirt cheap. Though, I would recommend sticking to the Greenhills or Makati area since it's a generally local area that won't mistakenly give you a "happy ending". Generally, Manila is a big city. It's best to have a Filipino friend to bring you around... but if you don't have one yet, JUST DON'T BE STUPID. over 8 years ago
