Yes, the pure logistical nightmare that represents the disorganized shithole called Metro Manila puts off all but the most hardened and intrepid punters and of those that brave the place once, few return a second time, with most preferring the far more tourist friendly Thailand for future SE Asian jaunts. This allied to overpriced and poor quality hotels, generally shittty food, traffic clogged roads, air pollution and genuine security concern issues particularly in the tourist ghetto of Malate/Ermita scare most off at the planning stage. In this respect it most resembles Jakarta. And like Jakarta, for those in the know and willing to put up with a few petty inconveniences, both cities are chock full of nubile, willing, dusky skinned young lovelies ready and willing to serve you and make your every sexual whim a reality. And usually without the avaricious, hardened professionalism that is these days the norm in Thailand. In Pattaya and Bangkok you are never under any illusions that you are not just another Joe buying sexual services whereas in Manila and Cebu (not so much Angeles) a genuine extended GFE is very much the norm. Here you will find many girls willing to stay with you for as long as you want them to at minimal cost and more than happy to accompany you around some of the beautiful places that exist in The Philippines outside of the horrible, third world urban areas of the big cities.
