PHILIPPINES CITY


                                            TOURIST INFORMATION FOR TRAVELLERS TO MANILA,



There are many 7/11s in the Philippines and they are across the boards selling all the necessities you may want. Most have a security armed on guard as you will find the odd poor kid hanging around outside wanting money. The 7/11s have milk, bread, and all the drinks you need and open 24 hour in true 7/11 fashion.


Theres many places to eat but the best is the Robinsons food centre on the 2nd flloor. Cheap inexpensive you will also see JOLLIBEE fast food for your hotdogs and spaghetti bolognaise dishes; Pizza Hutt and many food outlets ij this centre which is the best in Manila plus it has a supermarket.. See menu below. There are also many Pizza parlours, Wendys, MacDonalds, Starbucks and Kentucky Fried outlets and the breads and cakes are really cheap and excellent. Best to eat out away from Hotels as the food it too expensive but remember its Hotel food and all Hotels everywhere are dear. The difference in Philippines is that the drinks are not free--not even a complimentary water is served in most Hotels so you pay for everything. The only one we fiound with a jug for making tea/coffee in your room was the Walkabout Hotel in Angeles.



7/11s everywhere and you can't beat these stores for all your everyday necessities and drinks etc. Philippine food they do not use chillies and spices like Thai food but its nice with an adsense of vegeltables. They prefer to eat meats but the buns and breads are good.

Many airline ticket offices along Roxas in Malate
