I have been told that I should not travel on my own in Metro Manila. I am going there for a conference and would like to be able to explore the old city like museums etc, I was told by a family member that is it not safe.
we get asked this from time to time.
Here's a recent answer that applies to your circumstances.
Pretty safe in the popular tourist areas, but if you want to go deep into the city to explore you will be best served to get a local guide. about 3 years ago
Thank you for your answer, I appreciate it. It looks like I will stay with the tourist spots. I thought for an older person it was a bit safer as I know pretty well to keep myself safe, however I will take every bodies advice and not go exploring. :-) Also no night life for me anyway. :-)
