Rest of Weekend - March 30 - 31?

I see the Easter Friday thread and understand not much will be open that day, but I fly in on the Saturday, will everything be back open again? Or does the whole weekend stay on religious observance and things stay shut? thank you...

A lot of establishments will begin opening on Black Saturday with a number still on limited operating hours. Expect some to still remain closed though. It will be back to business for Easter celebrations.

" I have 5 days in Makati, then 7 more in Pasay."

Don't make sense to me.

Staying in two different very nice hotels in different parts of the city. Aren't Makati and Pasay separate suburbs?

Yes but they are very near to each other.

If you say Makati and Tagaytay I will still understand but Pasay?

All the shopping centres will be open on Easter Sunday.

Your hotel may have an Easter egg hunt.

Easter Sunday would be very much busy just like Christmas but without gift-giving. Expect also heavy traffic in major roads like EDSA because Manila residents who had their vacation in the provinces would be back .
