Manila is a big city by any standards, it has (or so I have been told) 12 million officially registered inhabitants, and approximately 3 million more that are not registered but still live in the city. It is a very diversified agglomeration, full of deep contrast.

You can find modern high rises, broad highways…

…construction sites of new shopping centres…

…not far from simple dwellings…

to downright slums on the river banks.

I don’t know what are the places to see in Manila, what I saw though, makes  me want to go back. Maybe next time I will discover how to move around the city of thousand faces in order to see all the so-called tourist attractions from all guides… I definitely wouldn’t mind having that opportunity in the future.
