Day Trips from Manila - Candaba Swamp Wildlife Reserve by JohnSmart on Sun Jan 04, 2009 2:00 pm
The day started as usual – I woke up, always a good sign. Today, I said, I am going to check out Ace Durano’s concept, that birdwatching offers a good option for Philippine holiday destination activities.

How many times I have passed the sign on the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx), near Pulilan, that says: Candaba Swamp, Wildlife Reserve; complete with iconic image of an Egret, or something similar.

Taking my copy of Birds of the Philippines in hand, a pair binoculars, Canon Digital EOS300D and sturdy Manfrotto tripod, and donning some suitably drab coloured clothing, we set out from Manila for the Pulilan exit on NLEx.

We stopped for a quick bite to eat at Burger King, at the Shell Bacaue service station; two exits later, I asked the tollbooth attendant for directions to the Candaba Swamp Wildlife Reserve. Her hesitation in saying, “er . . . go . . . right” did not add any confidence to my otherwise enthusiastic approach to the unfolding adventure but turn right we did.

Intramorous by michaelcole on Tue Jan 27, 2009 12:21 pm
I am taking every Saturday to do trips to different places I went to Intramorous last week.

It was a nice sunny day and the wife and i have not been there for a long time.

So we all jumped into a taxi an headed off to Intramorous.

The driver took the scenic route, I looked really like a tourist.. But actually the cost from Makati was only 110 Peso, So no real compaints there.

Once there we were dropped off at the church, which has done some work on the front and added a glass door inside the old wooden doors, Some people have no ideas how to keep a place historical..

Anyway it is a beautiful church and very nice inside and out.

From there we walked up to the clam shell, you can find it on our maps..

They had a show about the south of the philippines and we wasted at least 1 Hour walking around the stands looking at their wares, They had some beautiful wood carvings and some scarves and the wife and daughter picked one up each.

After that we went down to the Memorial for the Fallen...

Metro Manila by michaelcole on Sun Jun 15, 2008 7:33 pm
So You travel to the philippines and need ideas of things to do in Metro Manila.

There are some very large shopping centers, which can take a while to walk around, Perfect to waste some time.

There are some trips around China Town which i have not done, Remember don't look too much like a tourist.

If you want you can head over to the American Cemetery in Fort Bonifacio that is a sight in it self.

They keep it up and it really is worth a walk around. If you cannot walk that far or getting a little old like my parents they have a shuttle to take you from the car park to memorial.

What else? There is the Manila Zoo, they have made some improvements but it is not up Australian Standards. You will get to see some of their animals which is nice.

There is Intramuros, this is the old City, they have some horse rides, it is a good day out walking about and there is an area setup which changes every month or earlier to show off different provinces and their products.

I will update this with...

My Tagaytay Trip by michaelcole on Wed Jun 04, 2008 8:53 pm
Tagaytay is a nice trip for anyone wanting to get out of Metro Manila for a day.

Being stressed and knowing that the school year is about to start i decided to take my family away during the week.

We headed off on a Tuesday morning about 9:30-10:00.

Picking up two other people for the trip we headed off down, to Tagaytay.

To get there is a real easy drive. It is from Metro Manila onto the South Super Highway down to the Santa Rosa exit.

Once you are there just turn off and after passing Coca Cola on the right next to the Toll gate turn Right.

Now just drive...

It will take a while to get there, so take some snacks for the kids and some drinks.

If you forget you can pull off the highway and get some at the service stations.

You will arrive in Tagaytay at a T intersection. To get to the town turn right or if you want the Picnic area turn left.

At the Picnic area there are lots of tables and places where you can set up a little barbque. They have a really nice walk where you can...
