I am wanting to visit Manila or A.C. (or maybe both) for my upcoming birthday. I will be flying from Shanghai and noticed airfare to Manila is reasonable. I am a single guy who is coming to the Philippines to unwind and have a fun birthday. I'm hoping for something along the lines of what I'd find when I went to Pattaya for my birthday in the past. For a single guy looking for nights (and days) of fun, is A.C. a better choice? Or do both Manila and A.C. have fun nightlife spots?
I've heard that Angeles may be better if you go with groups of people and there's not as much to do during the daytime as Manila (?). Also, I heard people try hustle you more aggressively in A.C. compared to Manila. But I know in either place you need to be ready to haggle or be on the lookout for anything dishonest. I've lived in Asia for three years, so this won't come as a shock to me. Anyhow, any advice on the main differences between the two would be appreciated. Currently I've been working a lot, so some R&R in Manila/A.C. would be welcomed when my birthday rolls around!
