Im 57 year old male from the USA. I have traveled solo to many parts of the world. I have had the desire to visit Manila. This would also be a solo trip. A few people have told me that I should not do this. They said it would be unsafe for me to spend time in Manila on my own. I know that in any large city, there are areas that one should not venture into alone or other wise. And I have wandered around large cities alone, including New York City which is not far from me.
I know anything can happen anywhere. But is what these people are saying correct? Is it not a good idea to be in Manila on my own?
