Metro Manila received accolade

The Philippines, second largest archipelago in the world next to Indonesia, is getting more and more exposure from one of the world's leading travel website, Trip Advisor. In March, Trip Advisor named the island of Boracay as the top beach destination in Asia and the sixth in the world, beating other well-known beach destinations like Miami, Hawaii and Mexico.
The "It's more fun in the Philippines" stuff doesn't end there because Metro Manila was ranked 4th in the top ten "destinations on the rise" category following Jakarta, Kathmandu and Calcutta.

"Located on Manila Bay in the South China Sea, and bisected by the Pasig River, the capital of the Philippines is historic and modern, rich and poor," it said on its website. 

They also took notice the walled city of Intramuros saying "The capital during Spanish colonization, Intramuros has retained old dungeons and gunpowder rooms but added art galleries and theaters,".

"The city is filled with museums, shops, parks and churches, plus enough nightlife to last until dawn," it added.

Completing the list of top 10 are Bangalore, Luang Prabang, Phnom Penh, Chiang Mai, and the Japanese cities of Kobe and Osaka.
