What to See in Manila: My Tour in the Capital of the Philippines with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines
What to see in Manila. It’s time to tell you about my trip to Philippine, to be more precise, to Manila with – KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and KLM Dream Offers. We flew for 23 hours with all comforts, Giova and I watched thousand of movies, even the most recent, we play games on board, and we had three complete meals with soy noodles and a lemon tart when we were about to land on Asia (as you can imagine we eat every crumble, everything was so good!). On our way back we even try Economy Comfort Class: the price in just like a regular Economy Class but you have more space between each seat and more space to recline: it feels much better!
Manila was one of the locations in my travel wish list for 2016 and it didn’t let me down! All the things I’m going to tell you about Manila won’t be enough to explain how incredible my experience has been. You must see it with your own eyes to understand. Chaos, people literally everywhere, on the streets, inside sidecars, jumping on and off crazy buses that never stop, riding motorcycles (generally more than three people for each), carriages, bicycles and driving millions of cars and taxis. SOUNDS: klaxon, screaming of peddlers, noises from building sites of a giant, still growing metropolis, music on the streets, people chatting, running and walking up and down. SMELLS: of food cooked on the street, the strong smell of a city where the rich and the poor coexist in a perpetual conflict. FEELINGS: the good heart of Philippine people that in such a huge city don’t see many tourists, the surprise in their eyes when they see us walking in places we’re not supposed to be, children waving “hello” ever time they see us passing by, all the smiling faces, the curious looks and the gentle greetings of elders. It’s a tough reality… but it’s fascinating and I want to understand it deeply.
Green parka jacket. This is one of my favorite outfit, that I’ve ever worn, did you like it on Instagram (You can find me HERE or look for @ireneCCloset). I love it! I like to match army green, such a casual and boyish color with baby pastel shades, delicate and super feminine colors. So today I put on an oversize army green shirt, a green parka jacket (with a cool back) and a powder pink skirt.
Green Parka Jacket and Extra-Long Pleated Skirt
The skirt is suuuuper long! A floor length maxi skirt. Since the outfit looked a bit too wide, I decided to add a waist skinny belt over the green parka jacket, to enhance my body shape and for during the latest fashion shows I saw lots of belts over the coat! Well, what do you think about this look? Comment below I want your opinions! :) Hugs and kisses!
