It's dirty as fuck and smells like shit that's what i heard from a lot of foreigners in philippine forums online tbh. I'm planning on going to manila and renting a place in bgc or makati since i can afford 1,000-1,500 per month of rent and utilities so over 2k probably, U pay that price because it's cleaner and safer. Then you can just go online and get girls from manila or other places that aren't as westernized and bring them back to your place. That's my plan when i visit for a few months, Get a GRAB don't go to the drivers because they will overcharge you and waste your time driving long routes if you use the machine in the front of the shitty car. GRAB mogs in every way especially since it's literally cheaper lol.
