Manila, the best place to be during the Lenten Season

Sunday, April 04, 2010

For many years now, I choose to have a "staycation" during the Holy Week season. Its the best time to experience traffic free roads, less crowded places and a good time to observe the Lenten traditions of the Filipinos. The term "staycation" is how they call it, where you can stay home but you explore the places around the city and then find retreat.

We went around the churches in Manila and started in Intramuros, then Malate and finally at Binondo.

On our way to our next stop, we passed by a line of food vendors and church goers sampling street food and refreshments.
