About Jaycee P
Lives in Metro Manila, Philippines
Since Jun 2012
25-34 year old female
I was born and raised in the Philippines and have been living in Metro Manila since 2001. The metropolis continuously evolves as much as its people and I love to explore how fast it does. I love to travel at my own pace so I can enjoy the places and activities I like the most. I plan ahead before my trips and give time to hang out with locals, visit places with traces of old civilizations, discover new food, exchange experiences with fellow travelers, and make new friends along the way. To me, traveling is one of the best ways to learn more about life and expand horizons so I could continuously improve myself.

While it certainly doesn't come cheaply, if it's a luxurious dose of pampering you're looking for, The Spa Wellness at The Fort hits the spot. With various locations, room types and services on offer, they cater to your every whim. You can revive on your own or relax together with a couple's package.
The largest mall in Asia, SM Mall of Asia has a lot to offer, from shopping to romantic dining. Even if you don't like shopping, you can visit this mall to see a movie in the IMAX Theatre or dine, bowl, watch the sunset over Manila Bay, and much much more.
Besides its delicious Asian fare, Spices at The Peninsula Manila offers romantic dining al fresco, with views of the pool.
One of the most romantic things you can do here is cuddle up to watch Manila Bay's iconic sunset. When those hues streak across the sky, the 'magic hour' is made truly magic.
If you're craving a night out on the town, get all dolled up and take in a play at the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
Historic Rizal Park is one of the places most frequented by local couples in Manila. Commemorating the execution site of national hero José Rizal, the park also features myriad other attractions, including ornamental gardens and a Light and Sound Show.
Barcino is a small chain, with six wine restaurants dotted around the metropolis. All are cozy and serve up delicious wines. Plus, sharing a few small plates always makes for a pleasant romantic pastime.
Make your moments sweeter by sharing a scoop (or two) of gelato at Gelatissimo. They have three branches around the metro, so there's no excuse not to enjoy at least one ice-cream stop!
All bets are off: Spice up your relationship with a strike or two at Superbowl...
Wandering around the historic neighborhood of Intramuros is more than a heritage experience. The pretty streets and buildings all but ooze romance.
Museums always make for creative and fun dates, and the National Museum is no different. In the three buildings, you can stand close while gazing at the National Art Gallery's impressive art collection, learn about heritage at Museum of the Filipino People, and cuddle up 'under the stars' at the Planetarium.
Known as having the best buffet in Manila, Spiral serves up a wide range of dishes. Set in the Sofitel hotel, the swanky spot features a gorgeous dining room in which 21 'dining ateliers' take you on a journey of the senses.
