I'll be arriving in Manila on a Monday night (March 31) around 9pm. I'll be flying to Cebu the next morning.
Does anyone have any suggestions on where I should stay and eat? I'll be getting off a long flight from the USA so I'll probably be hungry and somewhat rested.
I'm not too concerned with a 20ish minute taxi ride if it's a better area to get a hotel and grab some food (I don't want McDonalds or that kind of fast food). I'm fine with local, street food. I've traveled extensively around SE Asia and always enjoy getting to know a place with some street food.
Regarding my budget....not too concerned with price. Somewhere around $100 is fine (give or take). I prefer a nice boutique hotel over a fancy chain hotel.
Thanks for your help!
Also, if you have any suggestions for Cebu City....my last night in the Philippines will be there and I'm looking for the same type of hotel/food. I'll have more time in Cebu than in Manila (perhaps 3pm-10am on a Thursday night, April 10th).
