Day 21: Manila – Home

Mid-morning, corner of Ponte and Pasong Tirad Streets, Makati, Manila. The two nights we spent in Manila at the beginning and end of our trip were just a short way down the street from here.

    Hi team – your trip to the Phillipines looks inspiring and I’m just suggesting it to my partner for January 2015. We are also kiwis and would be keen to here any recommendations or what you might avoid or any other suggestions

      Hi Nadine, can only say we had a brilliant time and really loved our trip there. Highlight was definitely El Nido area for scenery but the riding on all the other islands was good. Riding the highlands around Banaue, Baguio and Sagada would be great too (we did that via jeepney on a different trip) – but would love to ride it. Have fun! please send us a link if you have a blog.
      cheers
      Mark.

    Hi, I love your photos. I wonder how’d you do it? How many cameras do you bring on your trip? Or you just change the lens if needed? What camera/lens do you often use, if you don’t mind? Thanks.

Welcome to VeloTour

This blog's about a three week cycle touring trip in the Philippines in July 2008. Check out the introduction.

I've created the blog to be a day-by-day account, but it's all based around the photos - so don't worry - we won't bore you with loads of text ... just pages of photos instead. Blogs show the most recent post first - so if it's easier, use the menu below to navigate.
