Which is the Better Holiday?
Manila is arguably better for a relaxing trip. The city is a little less chaotic than Bangkok and many people speak English too...
But if you want a trip enjoying world-famous nightlife and countless street food stalls then busy Bangkok may be better...
Both destinations have fantastic excursions, from Bangkok's floating markets and awe-inspiring temples, to Manila's many fun day trips like Taal Lake and the Banaue Rice Terraces.
More 'Western' city but just hours from incredible rural landscapes.
Cheaper vacation, very lively nightlife, and a fantastic opportunity to experience the 'East'.
