Should the listing for the World War II Manila American Cemetery and Memorial be moved to See? As I recall from when I was there, it is not that far from central Manila, so could it be considered part of Manila itself? Brendio 16:09, 17 Jan 2006 (EST)
Where is the section on get around?
I think a few good pictures of some of the attractions here would really improve the article... However, I have none and am not planning on going there in the forseeable future! Get to work wikitravellers! Tsandell 16:50, 21 May 2006 (EDT)
Hey, a lot of the articles pertain to Metro Manila and not Manila proper alone.
Should we add a disambiguity page to differentiate the City of Manila from Metro Manila? Oftentimes, the term Manila refers to Metro Manila, not just Manila City. When traveling in the provinces, for example, when asked, people would often say taga-Maynila ako (I'm from Manila) even if they've never stepped foot on Manila City (an unlikely possibility, though).

this is ridiculous. International organizations now use Manila to refer to MetroManila, only the parochial Filipinos who want to pretend somebody is interested to know Taguig or Tondo would be deluded to use that. Manila only has a 30 sq km area, that's a small portion of the 20 million urban area which is now the 9th largest of the world. Who is interested with Sampaloc or Tondo when all the travel guides are cursing their stay in Manila proper but suddenly calm down when they describe Makati or Fort Bonifacio? This is Wikitravel so highlight the areas one would travel to, not the ones where he would stay away from. Gosh, some idiots!
Stay safe-section cleanup!
The "Stay Safe"-section could really be improved. Especially due to the fact that it says Manila is safer than Jakarta, and on the Jakarta-page it says Jakarta is safer than Manila. 188.8.131.52 12:22, 2 October 2007 (EDT)
This section doesn't even exist anymore. Could someone write something up who has lived there?
I think we should also add a "Learn" section. Some cities like Bangkok has this. They post schools where you could learn, for example, Thai Massage, Muay Thai Boxing, and Buddhist Meditation. So for Manila, maybe we can have Learn Filipino Martial Arts, Filipino Cuisine, etc.
There is a ton of great information here, but organizationally speaking, this guide is one big disaster. Links to non-articles are all over the place, section headers do not conform to our standards, and above all, it looks like there are two competing districts breakdowns?! I have no idea what is going on with the districts breakdown, but I'll work a bit on cleaning up the rest. --Peter Talk 14:15, 2 April 2012 (EDT)
sadly Manila had been really dissapointing for me, the wiki page should atleast provide some information about notorious locations
This article is rife with the author's personal opinions and not the sort of neutral encyclopaedic tone one would expect from a Wikitravel article. The dining section for Manila is an utter disgrace. —The preceding comment was added by 184.108.40.206 (talk • contribs) at about 13 June November 2012 (EST)
The text below was removed from the article today by Singapore.Alice but written from IP 220.127.116.11:
I wrote the above text ("This article seems to have been written..."). We all want WikiTravel to be helpful to prospective travelers. And like Wikipedia, it should represent the best knowledge possible. I fail to see how the tirade on the inferiority of Filipino food, and the speculation regarding lack of monarchy, could be helpful to prospective traveler. I think extreme and contrarian opinions like this are valuable, but the author should publish this on his/her personal blog instead of WikiTravel.--Rajiv 21:10, 4 December 2012 (EST)
Cleaning up the Restaurant segment in the Eat section
Is anyone opposed to removing the majority of the "Restaurant" section? http://wikitravel.org/en/Manila#Eat We could keep the last paragraph only ("Most sit-down and casual dining restaurants..."). The preceding paragraphs belong in a personal blog, not WikiTravel. This has been discussed above in the "Opinion" section.--Rajiv 21:34, 4 December 2012 (EST)
Metro Manila is composed of the City of Manila (the country's capital), Quezon City, and the cities of Caloocan, Las Piñas, Makati, Malabon, Mandaluyong, Marikina, Muntinlupa, Navotas, Parañaque, Pasay, Pasig, San Juan, Taguig, and Valenzuela, as well as the Municipality of Pateros, which is not a city (Tagalog: "Lungsod") but a 1st class municipality in its own right. These are not districts, these are individual cities. To aid travelers, it is important to have separate articles for Metro Manila and the City of Manila. The reason why is because the sections will have different information. For example, the "Get in" section for Metro Manila is going to include air travel (with the airport located in Pasay) but the City of Manila will not. 18.104.22.168 22:02, 22 March 2015 (EDT)
