How horrible can Metro Manila get?

Post by Rock »

Here's one of the bad sides of Manila area and large Philippine cities in general. Check these images out for a view of how awful the air can get here. At the ground level when you are commuting, not only does traffic normally gridlock everyday from like 4ish to past 8-9 pm, but the air is absolutely the worst in Asia. When you are in jeepneys, you are forced to breath lots of CO. Expect to get sick if you stay here long (I just got back from Los Angeles) and regularly commute. Sunday is the only relatively quiet day. ... g-weekend/

I was almost pick-pocketed there...I lost a Behringer B-2 microphone after leaving it in a white-coloured taxi by accident after taking the cab from the bus terminal, where I just came from Angeles City.....The Internet cafe's are charging more to stay online with keystroke readers on them.

Yeah you can keep Metro-Manila. Totally the worst place in the Philippines hands down.
