Manila Day Two - Tour of the city. Chinatown etc

Manila’s Chinatown – President Restaurant in China Town.

Not only was the food great at President Restaurant, the service was good too. I just love to try out new foods from the different countries I visit. (Some are just gross but have to try once).

Most of the food is fantastic.
beef brisket to fresh seafood's are really good and recommended by me.

Chinatown which is located along the northern bank of the historic Pasig River, shows the long history of the Chinese presence and traditions in the Philippines. The Chinese had been much involved in the business specially the retail trade and have been absorbed in a Philippine life-style.

The Chinese People I find are hard workers, in fact from what I have seen WORK is one of the main items in their life. They just seam to get on and do the job required without any moaning. This is like Singapore Work come first then family, relationships. Most Chinese I have met have put love life on the back burner to concentrate on career first.

Some pictures from the city tour.

From what I seen Manila is not a rich or well developed city but what I can say is that the people I met are truly happy living their. OK well I'm off to relax and get ready for another night time experience.
