Is Manila safe for tourists? | exploring the most dangerous city in Southeast Asia

9084 ratings | 546740 views
Many people told me that I shouldn’t got o Manila, surprisingly non of these people have actually ever been to Manila, because even thought Philippines is a very popular destination, majority of tourist usually tend to skip country’s capital. I personally love exploring new places, and since we already had a layover in Manila, we decided to extend it and see Manila for ourselves, and make up our own mind about this city. Yes, Manila might not be the most tourist friendly destination and you definitely need to be carful and make sure you’re staying as safe as possible, but beside that the city really surprised me in a positive way! It was different than any other city I’ve ever seen before, it was colourful, interesting, full of life. We had a great time exploring it, and I’m so happy I decided to give Manila a chance!

I noticed that your friend was carrying a purse. Not the best idea since there are snatchers in Manila, just like there are many in Italy and Spain, and poorer countries. Always safer to carry a fanny pack and not take a chance.

*PLEASE KINDLY NEVER DEFEND YOUR COUNTRY, YOUR CITY OR YOUR PLACE! LET THOSE FOREIGN PEOPLE EXPERIENCE WHAT OR WHERE ARE SAFE OR NOT! FRANKLY, PHILIPPINES IS THE MOST DANGEROUS COUNTRY IN THE UNIVERSE! PROUD AND TRUE! NO ARGUEMENTS ARE REQUIRED!*

"It looks like a crazy mix of Asia and Latin America" That's why they call the Philippines "the Mexico of Asia" lol

leongt1954 even at night it’s usually safe we only say to foreigners it’s unsafe so that nothing bad happen to u because it will tarnish Philippines image internationally...

Are you alive still? You just got lucky that day. Sooner or later, White women in Manila will be murdered, raped, and/or robbed. Spend more time there alone as a White woman and you'll know what I'm talking about.

i got pickpocketed, that’s the worse thing i can get, didn’t get robbed, beat up or shot still you have to be more careful

It's a very honest opinion of the city. I am a 70 retired Filipino who is dual Australian-Filipino citizens (40 years in Australia and 30 years in the Philippines). I realized that whenever I look at tourist destinations, Philippines is being bypassed by many tour company, which is understandable especially as you say, people kept saying that it's unsafe though they never been in Manila. Being retired I spend 10 months out of 12 in the Philippines and 2 months in Australia and anywhere else. It doesn't really bother me if the rest of the world don't want to visit us especially Manila since the city is too crowded anyway. But I am very proud of the country and what it can offer to many people. It has over 80 provinces and over 7,000 beautiful islands, which I dream of visiting all before I die. I had been to most countries in the world, America, Asia, Australia, and Europe but my heart is still in the Philippines, my native land. Thank God for giving us such a wonderful and exceedingly lovely place. For those of wants to come, you are welcome, for those but are hesitant to visit, just listen to the author of this video and find out what you're missing... Natural beauty of the country and the famous hospitality of the people who speaks English in an easy going manner are our assets. Mabuhay. So far, in the past 4 years since retirement, I had visited more than half of the country... with the hope that in very near future, will be able to cover the whole archipelago. Again, to the author, thank you very much. By the way, in spite of my age, I am very young at heart and you can see me through my facebook Steve Aji Esteban.

I had a wonderful two weeks in Manila, Batad, and Banaue. Wandered all over and never felt unsafe. Met fine people wherever I went...from alleys to restaurants, waterfront to downtown.

are you sure you want to share positive side of Manila? your title of the video doesn't say so. i am not a filipino, but i hate this kind of misleading title, you are not capable of making your video interesting without misleading title eh?

I'm glad you have a good impression of Manila. Don't believe what the international Media says. The media is controlled by the Oligarchs who are not supportive of the present administration. They all publish negative news about the Philippines. You have to visit the provinces where our main tourist attractions are located.

Crowded trains, dirt, sut, and rubbish everywhere, grafittis on every wall, traffic, people on the crowded roads trying to brainwash people for money, miney pick pockets on the side walks, cheating taxi drivers. Good city and capital

yea me too i guess manila is the most dangerous city in south east asia the people there are not humble. if your not a foreigner and just a normal filipino civilian their rude and naughty dirty places their only nice with the foreigners or tourist its called colonial mentality and over populated super traffic also and if u take a taxi they ask for added money locos

THE MOST DANGEROUS CITY IN SOUTHEAST ASIA, REALLY????? HOW DID YOU CAME ABOUT WITH THAT IDEA? I WOULD BE MORE AFRAID IN GHETTO USA THAN THE MOST DANGEROUS AREA IN THE PHILIPPINES.

+Dino Toledo Also tell me something good in Manila's city planning that was planned THEMSELVES not other companies, not other countries just Philippines
TVGamer36 (1 month ago)
+Dino Toledo What you said there is the truth and reality of Manila, my first tip for making manila better is getting rid of jeepneys, so more people can get on the government buses so they can make even more money, and HOPEFULLY use it for something good lile clean up the city
Dino Toledo (1 month ago)
TVGamer36 hahahhhaahha....u mean the first world country fool of homeless tents all over the cities. Drug addicts/beggars in the street. 72k drug addicts death. Hahahaha don't even get m started lol boi! Ur inbreeding sickness with mass killing innocent bystanders. Hahaha u r sick in the head. Don't brag ur imperialist mentality. Bcos u know nothing of what ur saying. Hahahaha...waiting for ur stupid reply. Bangg!!!😂😂😂
TVGamer36 (1 month ago)
Much safer? What about the cheating taxi drivers, MRT crash, pollution more than any other city apart from shanghai and mexico, traffic is every where, people do not know how to plan a city and yoy can not even get rid of your idiotic jeepneys, manila will always be a developing city for a vew long time like around a 100 years
Dino Toledo (1 month ago)
WITH THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION IT IS ACTUALLY MUCH SAFER NOW THAN PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATIONS. IF YOU BELIEVE IN MAINSTREAM MEDIA THEN YOU ARE GETTING OPPOSITE INFORMATION AND THATS INTENTIONAL. THE CORRUPT OLIGARCHS CONTROLS THE MEDIA. THE RICH ARE THE ONES WHO RUINED THE ECONOMMY OF THE COUNTRY AND DUTERTE IS ANTI CORRUPTION AND ANTI DRUGS. THERES MUCH TO LEARN ABOUT THE COUNTRY'S POLITICAL ISSUES. AND YOU ARE CORRECT ITS BEST TO SEE IT YOURESELF THAN TO LISTEN TO OTHERS.

JAMIE CUGEE (1 month ago)
It's not safe anymore because under the new government of Duterte, killings is widespread. Drugs smuggling is so rampant. Before Duterte came to power its pretty safe. Always put your bags ladies in front of you even eating in a restaurants. people will go behind you and try to get your purse.

I admire you ladies for coming and giving it a try and not listen to idiots who give Manila such a bad rap without even experiencing it for themselves. Shame on them! Of course, there are sections of the city that isn't safe. But hey, which big city in the world can they name that doesn't have a good and bad area? I am glad you had the desire to find it out for yourselves and I assume you did enjoy it. Its not for everyone, but it provides a good introduction the life of urban Filipinos. I am sure you would like to see other parts of the country as well.

In Manila if you go somewhere alone you should be look like simpler and you'll be safer. If you prefer to be look like elites, then you should be careful at all.
