    How safe is Manila?

    I must say I found it pretty safe when I was there 3 years ago. I stayed with friends of mine who have been living in Makati for a few years. Makati itself is very safe it's just apt blocks, hotels and malls so noting like the real manila but you feel very safe walking around there. We did go to other parts of the city too and always felt safe, the filipinos are so friendly and helpful never felt threatened at all. This hostel looks like a good option for manila. http://www.hostelworld.com/hosteldetails.php/Our-Melting-Pot/Manila/36336 Here are a few other questions i answered on the phillipines if you're going further afield. http://travellr.com/questions/philippines/1275/are-there-some-recommended-diving-spots-in-the-philippines about 9 years ago

    Are there some recommended diving spots in the Philippines?

    I did my padi a couple of years ago in this place in Anilao, about 3 hrs drive from Manila. Anilao has some amazing dive spots nearby, cathedral and twin rocks were my favourite. Outrigger resort is a great spot, delicious food and right on the sea. Stunning! We were lucky enough to go to the local village of mabini with our dive instructor and there was a festival on, was so much fun. http://www.outrigger.com.ph/ about 9 years ago

    Are there any great travel deals for Philippines beaches going on?

    Well here is the perfect place for you so, coco loco island, paradise and very reasonably priced. http://www.cocolocoisland.com/ Further down the other end of Palawan is club noah, quite expensive but worth it, food, staff, location and perfect! http://www.clubnoah.info/index2.html The pictures probably don't do either place justice. I got engaged on Coco Loco two years ago, very fond memories of Palawan :-) over 9 years ago
