Our flight from Kuala Lumpur to Manila
Manila – the Capital of the Philippines
Manila is the capital of the Philippines and has about 1.7 million inhabitants. The Manila metropolitan area has a population of about 12 million. The capital is the political, economic and cultural centre of the country as well as transport hub with universities, universities, theatres and museums. Because Manila was for a time the seat of the Spanish colonial administration, there are many Catholic churches in Manila, which are also under the protection of UNESCO.
Our Hotel Manila Baywalk
Manila served us only as a short stopover on the way to Dumaguete on the island of Negros. A detailed travel report to our Hotel G Hotel Manila by Waterfront and Manila will follow.
Starbucks Global Icon City Mug from ManilaWe are collecting the Starbucks Mugs from the cities and islands we visit on our travels. Unfortunately, not every city that has a Starbucks store with an own mug. But if the city has an own mug we like to collect them as a souvenir. We only collect city mugs from the "Global Icon Series", which was released in 2008. You can see our complete collection here: Starbucks - Our collection of Mugs from the Global Icon Series
Manila has several Starbucks stores and also its own coffee cup 🙂
