The Pasig Ferry Line, Quiapo Church, Jones Bridge and a lot of small weird bits that make Manila absorbing. Jeepneys and pedicab (pedaled bicycles) are the choice of transport but walking is recommended. Savor the street food if your tummy is brave for battered squid, light a candle at the first church you enter and make a wish, buy stuff, all kinds of cheap fun stuff, and suck up the life that this city breathes with much love.
