Discover the Hidden Cool of Manila 解开马尼拉的面纱

When people picture the Philippines, it is usually the powdery white sands of island paradises Boracay or Palawan that come to mind.  In fact, many see its sprawling capital of Manila as merely a stopover. Sure, to the incurious traveller Manila is simply a concrete jungle, a network of crowded roads connecting skyscrapers and shanty towns alike.  But give it the attention it deserves and Manila opens up to reveal a developing city of excitement and leisure; one that truly deserves your full attention.

当人们描绘菲律宾时,通常会想到长滩岛或巴拉望岛的白色沙滩。事实上,许多人认为马尼拉,这个庞大的首都,是一个中途停留站。当然,对于不感兴趣的游客来说,马尼拉简直就是一片混凝土丛林,连接着摩天大楼和棚户区那些拥挤的公路网络。但给予一些关注的话,马尼拉其实很开放,能让你领略到它是一个结合令人兴奋的事物和休闲的发展中城市;一个值得你充分关注的地方。
