Hello, welcome to VT! I don't know which travel sites you've visited for the tours so I can't say if their price is reasonable, it really depends on a lot of factors (covered areas,transpo, guide services, food, entance fees,etc). As a starter, I suggest you visit the VT Travel Guides on the City of Manila. There, you'll see a lot of tips on places to go, transpo tips, etc. It's very easy to do a DIY tour. Just take the usual precuationary measures you would consider in any part of the world. The most important thing, DON'T use flashy jewelry and never display too much money. Don't be too trusting with strangers. Be ready with small change for your transpo, entrance fees & tips. It would be worthwhile to readd all the warning tips of VTers.

Oh, btw, I saw on TV recently that there's a free promotional guided tour of Intramuros for a limited period. I hope you can still avail of it when you're in Manila. You can ask your hotel to help you inquire about it.

I am not sure if you have been to Manila much, but its full of opportunists and half quality tour operators. My suggestion is to do it your self , at your own pace and over the time you want.
Visit- Rizal park ( late afternoon/dusk as too hot in mid day); Fort Santiago/ Intramuros/ Church of San Augustin and area- historical antique , museums and so on ; Markets- Baclaran, Divisoria, Quiapo ( sundays); Sea World for an Aquarium of 6/10 standard ;Mall of Asia to see the national Hobby- malling!; Cock Fight? - the cock pit Makati in afternoons; History museum in Ayala at Makati. Thats about it, the rest is eating , drinking and so on.
Getting around- use taxis, low cost and easy as long as you (1) make sure he puts the meter on, (2) make sure he puts the meter on (3) leaves the meter on and does not do any fancy fiddling with it ( one time he found a way to show double the fare and i am still trying to work out how he did it).

No Toilet Paper in most Public Toilets

by shantungbay

Hi, I'm a local so I know about this.

Generally, don't expect to find toilet paper in public toilets unless you're in a 4 or 5-star establishment like a hotel or a fancy restaurant. Most malls and public areas will NOT have toilet paper. The background behind this is that due to poverty, *some* Filipinos will take the entire roll of toilet paper and bring it home for their own use so public toilets simply stopped supplying toilet paper. Another reason is that *some* Filipinos prefer to use a plastic can filled with water (known as the 'tabo' in the native language) rather than toilet paper to simulate the way a bidet works.

So, always always bring a travel pack of tissues or Kleenex with you wherever you go along with wet towelettes and anti-bacterial hand gel. And always make sure that you've done the deed in your hotel/restaurant before you leave so that you won't have any problems. :)

Lately, some malls and establishments (Glorietta, Greenhills Promenade etc.) have begun charging customers P10 for toilet fees. This is actually GOOD because you'll be assured of a cleaner, fresher and better toilet with toilet paper!

by mlt_t

Pakikisama (comradeship)

by machomikemd

Another trait of the Filipino is pakikisama, which can be roughly translated as comradeship or being cooperative. It has many manifestations in Philippine society, one of which is extending support or offering help to neighbors who are in need. Pakikisama reflects the bayanihan spirit, which involves cooperation among fellow men to come up with a certain idea or accomplish a certain task. While bayanihan refers to a community-support deed, pakikisama has a more individualized sense. It has both positive and negative conotations (Negative, because one closes one's eyes to evils like graft and corruption in order to conserve peace and harmony in a group at the expense of one's comfort. Positive, because one lives for others; peace or lack of dissension is a constant goal.)
