The air crew was wonderful when they were around. Unfortunately you are abandoned most of the flight. You find yourself thirsty often during a long flight. It was a free for all if you wanted anything. Get up and go get yourself. You would accumulate trash without anybody coming by to take it from you. The entertainment systems are aging but that’s due to the age of the aircraft. Call me spoiled but once you fly on Singapore Airlines everybody else doesn’t meet the standard.

The air crew was wonderful when they were around. Unfortunately you are abandoned most of the flight. You find yourself thirsty often during a long flight. It was a free for all if you wanted anything. Get up and go get yourself. You would accumulate trash without anybody coming by to take it from you. The entertainment systems are aging but that’s due to the age of the aircraft. Call me spoiled but once you fly on Singapore Airlines everybody else doesn’t meet the standard.

Los Angeles to Manila Travel Guide

The only former Spanish colony in Asia, the Philippines contrasts starkly with neighboring countries. Learn about the country’s history and culture while strolling tree-lined streets in Intramuros, Manila’s historic district characterized by restored colonial architecture. In this walled city within a city, sample Manila’s bustling nightlife, laid-back restaurants and bars, art galleries and world-class museums such as Ayala Museum, which features an extraordinary collection of pre-Hispanic artifacts and amazing dioramas revealing the nation's history. It may leave you quoting General Douglas MacArthur: “I came through and I shall return.”

The most apparent similarity between Los Angeles and Manila is the extensive influence of Spanish culture in each of the cities, on everything from the language, art, architecture, music and cuisine to the laid-back sensibility. The biggest difference is probably the climate during summertime. Manila's climate is notably warmer and more humid, with a lot more rain, especially from June through October when monsoons bring heavy rains. November through February is a wonderful time to visit Manila; the weather is cooler and much dryer, with daily high temperatures in the mid-70's.
