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

Published on Apr 10, 2018 634,394 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!

  • Paul N
    Paul N 1 year ago Could it be the reputation comes from aggressive panhandling? As a very noticeable foreigner there, blonde, blue eyes, I really can’t say I was bothered at all. Probably easier to get killed in the crazy traffic then by crime there. People for the most part are very friendly and will help you out. Plus when you are visiting, is going to the most seedy part of anyplace a destination? If it is your asking for trouble.
  • theforsaken
    theforsaken 1 year ago Philippines/Oz Fun With JLB you don’t know shit. Go to Tondo, Manila at night then mate. By your self show off your camera, you will get dealt to. Just because you have been in busy areas with lights and people doesn’t mean you have been everywhere. Go to tondo in the neighbourhoods you will get dealt to. But wherever you go ita dangerous just have to stay in the safe places. But don’t say it’s safer than your Aussie city because it’s not.
  • Paul N
    Paul N 1 year ago theforsaken I’m pretty sure he’s generalizing to calm people’s nerves from visiting the Philippines and Manila. Many commenters give the wrong impression. Your Tonto analogy, the origins of my wife, is like saying Chicago is safe with about 14 murders a week and some weeks hundreds shot just wounded. You don’t go to those places acting silly.
  • theforsaken
    theforsaken 1 year ago Paul N yes you are correct. Just don’t go to the dodgy places being silly. That’s all it is. Go to the malls and nice areas and they’ll have a blast. It’s annoying how media can destroy a countries reputation

  • Brad Chad
    Brad Chad 1 month ago Rock Roll don't you know that L.A. downtown alone has 50K homeless during peak season not only living but lying on the street sidewalk and some of them were realy realy sick physically and mentally!
  • Rock Roll
    Rock Roll 1 month ago Brad Chad dude over 17% of the filipino population live in poverty! 17 million people live in slums,streets,under the bridges, and roads, dont you dare compare a developing country's poverty with a first world country, the Philippines is dirtbag poor!! Tho manila is the poorest of all! The air smells like shit, its rivers biologically dead, its bay has 20million parts per million of coliform, its markets crowded,stinky and filled with trash, tho manila might be the most poluted and poorest city in south east Asia , besides kindly never compare manila to american cities in terms of poverty! I beg you! You have never seen people taking showers in the street! Naked children with bloated stomachs running in the streets, nor how every single pocket of its city smell like human shit, how folks literally take dumps on side walks with people walking by like its normal, nor how children at the age of 12 look like 6 yearold kids due to underdevelopment caused by lack of food!!! Nor have you seen the slums where 30% of the cities population live! Where people literally live under the bridges!! My dude I lived all life in the north where life is hard but visiting manila was an eye opening experience, I thought I knew what poor was until I saw manila, trust me just watch documentaries of how poor it is before you compare it to new york, plsss

    Kenny H 2 months ago @Sana ohyoohyoohyo I met an retired American in Laos who was robbed and left for dead while vacationing in the Philippines. An old woman found him half dead and nursed him back to health. Then the Philippine police arrested him for not having a passport or identification. He then spent some time in jail until he could get word to the American embassy who then got him identified and replaced his passport and he got the hell out of there pronto! Another American family told me of their father who was also vacationing in the Philippines and had an obstructed bowel and went to the hospital, they refused his care because it was a holiday and his bank in America was not open to send immediate funds to the hospital which required that he pay up front for his treatment! Even tho this man was far from being poor, He died! For a retirement visa $10,000 USD is required in a Philippine bank, I have heard where some retirees money had disappeared by theft within the bank itself. And if you are arrested in the Philippines even tho you are innocent you may sit in jail for years before your case will come to trial and even if you are innocent your world against a Filipino means you lose!

  • Robert Hadden
    Robert Hadden 3 weeks ago (edited) Manila is nowhere near the most dangerous city in S.E.Asia. I would say Jolo, or somewhere down in Sulu, or somewhere like that. Manila is just fine if you take reasonable precautions. Chicago is a great place to visit, but if you get lost and wander into the wrong neighborhood, you will probably regret it. I don’t think Manila is that different.

If you are in a wrong place at a wrong time whether it's your country, bad things will happen just remember that my friend

  • gem
    gem 11 months ago (edited) Well most people in manila in the philippines are homophobic, slut-shamer, pedophile, and they cat call women. I live in the Philippines. Masaya lang ang Manila sa mga foreigners pero satin hindi. Pag nag suot ng bikini and "sexy outfit" ang mga foreigners, filipinos will understand but if filipino women wear something "sexy" some filipinos will slut shame them. Does that sound beautiful to you?

  • Nancy Retuya
    Nancy Retuya 9 months ago Conquistador Even here in London, there's a lot of Beggars. You'll find beggars every where in the world. When i went to Rome Italy last year, it was scary there especially in central Rome where there's a lot of thieves, snatchers & beggars. The beggars wont settle for a 50 Cents they want 1 Euro, just like here in London the beggars asked for £1. When i was In Malaysia way back 1994 there's a lot of beggars as well & trash every where + a lot of thieves & snatcher. But there's also some safe places in London, Italy & Malaysia just like in Manila. I think the dangerous place i've been to was in in the Middle East because you can't go around there by yourself alone after 8PM or you can as well but at your own risk. I was born & grew up in Manila, but i can travel around Manila on my own after midnight especially when i have to travel by bus from our own family house in manila to Cavite my own house which is sub urban of Manila.

  • maaarrrkkk10
    maaarrrkkk10 6 months ago There is no problem at all of who ever wants a vacation tour any place in PH as long as you have enough courage and budget allowance for everything needed to have when you actually been there. Its more preferably for you to own a condominium or buy lands have it for you, this place is best for investment so I invite each and everyone to just try not just the tourism spots, preserved nature, kind and welcoming people, the malls and local product but also the best place to live and stay with your family as well
