Oh thanks for correcting me. Really? Doesn't it have a branch in Manila City? I included that because the pic caption says "Hotel Intercontinental Manila, Manila City". Thanks again

LOL...Right, Intercon is in Makati. Anyway, speaking about hotels, it's just too sad that Manila has been losing its famous hotels, namely the Sheraton (still there, different operator), Hilton (same thing), Holiday Inn (t'was the Hilton and now the Pavilion), and of course, the Manila Hotel (still there getting uglier each year).

That last Binondo picture looks like Chinatown in New York. You can even see that the car has Connecticut license plates. And Manila doesn't have those kinds of coin-op parking meters.

^ That's right... I was trying to place it in Manhattan but that lowrise in the back didn't belong. It's definitely Flushing--- one of my favorite places on earth. It's like going to Hong Kong in New York.
