I would love to visit the Philippines, after hearing my Dad talk about it when he was in the service. He always said how beautiful it was, and that the Philippines is made up of over 7,000 islands, with the capital being Manila. There is a huge English speaking population there, so I don't think I will have the language barrier there that I would have in some other places. Plus, I have made friends over there, and would love to meet them in person! What a treat that would be, to be able to meet people I talk to on the computer, in person!!
I would love to stay at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila, which is a gorgeous luxury hotel that is located close to museums and theaters, and they advertise a spectacular balcony view of the sunsets over Manila Bay! What could be better than that??
They also have a Lagoon like swimming pool, tennis courts and the lushest tropical gardens to browse and walk around in. I might never leave the hotel grounds!!
But I would leave the hotel, so I could go to the Manila zoo and I really want to see the famous "Mall of Asia"! There are also some casinos that I would like to check out as well as the nightlife and probably some of the cultural dances.
If you are thinking of traveling soon, you should hurry to take advantage of up to 60% savings if you book on-line between June 23 - 29, 2009, and it is for stays that range between July 10 and September 30, 2009 with the Accor Hotels City Super Sale, they are offering some of the best prices available in today's market, and the deals are simply amazing!! That is how I found the wonderful price on the Hotel in Manila!!
I think this would be an amazing and very enlightening trip, to sort of re-trace the steps of my father, and also to make new ones of my own!
Till Next Time,
