Overview

Manilla is riddled with guns and poverty, but it’s more laid back and less hectic than Bangkok. One night here and you’ll never be the same again. Just follow my night-life recommendations.

The Girls

You really have your pick in Manilla -tanned, toned, petite cuties everywhere. They’re all super friendly and speak English with sexy Latina accents. The women here are also the coolest in East Asia. They are playful and up for anything. If there was a Sex Olympics, the Philippines would probably win the gold. There is a lot of average looking girls but you do encounter the odd stunner! Nearly 90% of girls here want to meet a western guy. But beware, if you want to avoid the hookers and are in Manila for more than two days click here; if you want to avoid the lady-boys click here. There are plenty of normal, genuine girls to choose from. Day game is where it’s at in Manila. They are very approachable -in malls, the street or just about anywhere. You might even meet the love of life here. Filipinas are said to make the best wives in the world.  This is my favourite country in South East Asia for a reason. Manila is your playground.

Here are 10 reason for dating a Filipina girl.

Nightlife Recommendations

Manila has a lot of options with cheap beer and great live music. And if there’s a girl involved? Well why not!

If you only have one night in Manila here’s the plan:

Cowboy Grill

Come here to start your night for some of the best steak around. They got great bands and  beer by the barrel! then…

Manila Bay (formally LA cafe)

This may just be the best bar on the fucking planet. WOMEN GALORE! 24 hours a day! (see pic) But beware, this is “freelancers” bar and it’s seedy as hell. You will need to fight the girls of with a stick. Personally, I’ve never paid for sex in my life, but I’ve never went home alone from this bar! Some of these girls are working but know some just want intimacy with attractive mates. Pick the right one, play it cool (& play it shy) and money won’t come up in conversation once. They won’t even ask for a drink. Even if you get unlucky,  this place is a tourist attraction in it’s own right. There’s great live music upstairs every night.

Getting High (courtesy of webehigh.com)

Legislation: About 5grams can land you life as the death penalty has been abolished for the meantime. Possession of any drug is considered a henious crime.

If you get caught and convicted, your facing 20+ years in one of the worse prisons in the world OR your gettin the death penalty!!!! BE DISCREET!!!

Law enforcement: If you get in trouble, try to get out as fast you can with the minimum number of people and pesos getting involved. Keep a few US $100 bills in your wallet (no ID, just money). The green $$$ talks if you get busted.

and also: “Philippine drug laws are extremely strict, especially for foreigners!!! Bribing most cops will buy you a “Get out of jail free” card. If you ever get caught just flatter the officers about their “professionalism” and how you believe their country is “by far” the best on Earth!!! After about 3-4 minutes of that tell the officers you want to make a deal! Friends of mine have done this with no problems, but DONT let them take you back to the station! You\’ll wind up having to bribe every officer and it’ll cost you around $3000 as opposed to maybe $400!!!”

Where to buy marijuana in Manila:
Pasay- go to ‘o farrel street (along park ave.) and ask around for butch he’ll hook you up with a sweet 5er. that’s about 50grams of weed.

Malate- Find Pablo Ocampo Street, and locate Vito Cruz Cityland. Directly in front of the building, and across the street, there are a group of tricycle drivers(Yellow Tricycles). Get the attention of one of the drivers,or you might go so far as to get inside the tricycle. Once your in the tricycle he’ll probably ask you “Where to BOSS” or something to that effect. Then just tell him “Marijuana my friend?”. He will understand and probably just nod his head yes! Then you make your order. Before I found my current hydroponics dealer I did exactly this EVERYDAY!!! Once you make a good deal, get the guys cell number so you can text contact him during your next craving! Conceal your address and name!!! Your on your way to a Shitty stone, but its better than nada!!! I know my fellow Cannaseurs agree!!!!”

Marijuana prices: It’s quite cheap in manila, they sell weed in very small bags that are good to fill a joint, we payed about 100 pesos (2 dollars) for 7 of those bags.and a recent report added: “Kilo from $380 Qty deals will get 2 to 3 foot “stalks” unpressed. Nice, sometimes seedless, sticky, available next day., quality varies shipment to shipment.

Smaller Deals Quality may vary. Street dealers will charge $50 US for a pressed amount the size of a Marlbor Box.”

another reporter added:
“$1=Php 50
1 kilo of brick weed (yuck) Php 3000
1 kilo of unpressed stalks PHP 5000
You can buy a 5er which means Php 500 you get 3-5 unpressed stalks a “tea bag” is about Php 50

My Manila Experience

I’ve been to Manila twice and never spent a night alone. Each night with sexy, beautiful little creatures. I love this fucking country.

Me in Philly

    this blog is awesome! Just read all of it, thanks man

  2. ice'di May 2, 2010 at 1:09 pm #

    Thanx!

  3. Eddie May 3, 2010 at 1:29 pm #

    Hey man I found about you from Roosh’s forum. Great blog. Keep up the good work!

    One recommendation I would say is changing the “Chance of Hooking Up” rating to a “Chance of Banging” rating. That is much more important. I’m sure you’ve noticed that it’s easy to hook up in some places but banging is a whole different story!

    • naughtynomad May 3, 2010 at 4:08 pm #

      My COH is COB, it just sounds more polite to say ‘Hook up’. It’s just semantics. In Ireland ‘Hook up’ can mean a whole host of things.

  4. Jake August 26, 2010 at 12:55 am #

    Hey man, how legit is the weed section in your blog?
    I live in Malate, I actually live in Cityland but I’ve never thought that the tricycle drivers sell marijuana. Can I take your word for it?

    • naughtynomad August 26, 2010 at 1:34 pm #

      Hey Jake, to be honest, I just get that info from webehigh.com
      Although I got offered weed of a tricycle driver before. Are you a local?

      • Jake August 28, 2010 at 12:15 am #

        I am sort of a local. I’ve got Filipino heritage but have only moved in from Jakarta so I’m sort of a foreigner and sort of a local all at the same time. I am living here though, yes.

        • naughtynomad August 29, 2010 at 4:17 pm #

          Cool, I’m interested… where is your favourite spot to hang out at night in the city?

  5. Dave November 12, 2010 at 6:11 am #

    Seems the LA Cafe is closed…

    • naughtynomad November 12, 2010 at 4:12 pm #

      I believe it’s now called Manila Bay.

  6. Djrouxy November 15, 2010 at 11:35 am #

    I’m going to spend two nights in Angeles City (north of Manila). Any advise on this city?

    • naughtynomad November 16, 2010 at 5:30 pm #

      yeah, it’s hard to find a place thats not a gogo place. Try the first bar on the Fields Avenue and Sky Bar. The city is mostly set up for the P4P scene.

  7. Craig December 17, 2010 at 4:09 am #

    Great write up! I’ve just booked my ticket for this place mainly because of the praise you give it… I’m arriving on the 27th of dec so any advice on how long I should stay in manila and other places I should go to on the way tp boracay?

    Girls are naturally a big part of my trip but so is relaxing on deserted beaches, riding a motor bike through little villages and just experiencing a new country… I’m there for 3 weeks.

    • Naughty Nomad December 17, 2010 at 7:48 am #

      Hey Craig, 2 days in plenty for Manila… if I had three weeks and wanted a good mix of girls, beaches and bike trips.. I’d recommend Boracay, Cebu, Manila and Palawan… Let me know how you get on in this wonderful country!

  8. Craig December 20, 2010 at 8:06 am #

    Awesome thanks for the advice! Will let you know how it goes down…

  9. Chel February 13, 2011 at 9:55 pm #

    I’ve just been to Sagada and I don’t look like I toke. I agree that Sagada is Hash heaven but no… they never did offered me any kind of bud. Though they say its just not the time of the year ( I went up to Sagada Last January). April is the best time to go there for buds…

    Malate? For real?

    • Naughty Nomad February 13, 2011 at 10:20 pm #

      That info is from webehigh.com

  10. Winston March 3, 2011 at 2:52 am #

    Interesting advice. You should share your experiences in my unique freethinking expat forum:

    http://www.happierabroad.com/forum/index.php

  11. Winston March 3, 2011 at 3:13 am #

    First, I do not believe that you are getting laid for free at LA Cafe. Occassionally you can, but that’s because the girl was too shy to ask you for money. Most of the time, even if they like you and think you are attractive, they WILL STILL EXPECT you to pay them. The girls that go there NEED money and even if they love you, expect you to help them financially. You don’t get around that by being good looking. It doesn’t work that way. I’ve lived in the Philippines for over 3 years now. Second, you should not be giving tips for getting drugs in the PH. You should advise people NOT to use them here period! Why do you advocate such a thing, and then claim to be against prostitution? Third, the article you linked “10 Reasons to date Filipinas” is mostly false, so why did you post it? Most of this article is false. Filipinas are laid back and easy going and down to earth. But they are naive, uneducated, shameless, do not believe that lying is wrong and lie frivolougly, not refined at all, they eat gross ghetto feed, have a lot of ghetto behaviors and attempt to manipulate you into giving them an allowance so they can support their families. To avoid that, you gotta date a middle class Filipina, but usually the only Filipinas that date foreigners are of the lowest class from the weakest incompetent families. That’s the reality. Every guy on my forum agrees. Visit http://www.happierabroad.com

    • Naughty Nomad March 3, 2011 at 12:57 pm #

      @Winston: I don’t see how you can equate smoking weed to prostitution.
      I also refute that only lower class Phillys date Foreigners as I’ve dated rich Filipinas before.
      We obviously have had very different experiences in the country.

  12. Brian March 3, 2011 at 11:51 am #

    When were you in Manila? I was recently there and saw a guy that looked sorta like you at Manila Bay.
    Thanks

    • Naughty Nomad March 3, 2011 at 12:52 pm #

      @Brian: The last time I was there was a year ago..

  13. SOMEWHAT July 30, 2011 at 2:25 pm #

    @ WINSTON:
    uneducated and shameless whoo..you really got a wrong idea man. those are just fraction of Filipinas you’ve meet. Filipinas are the only people on earth who can speak english pretty well. They are not manipulative it just so happen that you landed on the wrong breed of women for you are in the wrong place.

    @nomad:
    not all are true. however, I totally disagree on what you said about drugs. It is totally prohibited now and like you are totally giving wrong information to people.

  14. Charlie August 5, 2011 at 10:35 am #

    Sweet. Boris and I are going tomorrow!

  15. Walker August 11, 2011 at 3:55 am #

    Hey man, nice post as always…im thinking about visiting Manila, as well as some other places like Kuta, Phucket etc… i was just wondering if i would do well with direct game over there..what do you think?
    waiting for a reply

    Sam Walker.

  16. who cares September 21, 2011 at 8:06 pm #

    @ winston:

    You are 100% right. I have lived there almost 10 years. I have the feeling that this blog is a hoax, sorry if i am wrong. Where are all your travel pictures? If you say manila bay to a taxi driver you will end up on the water front. If you say LA cafe everybody knows the place. Peace.

    Yo!
    Im going to philippines for 3 weeks, can you send me the password for the tips on Manila if staying over 2 nights. Thanks

  24. MonteChristo April 3, 2012 at 12:23 pm #

    Manila and the Philipines seem very good from what I see here but other travellers on the bologosphere are not so enthusiatic. To go or not to go? I went to Bangkok and Phnom Penh last year and thought they were fucking ACE!!! How does the Phil compare to these two bad boys???

    • Naughty Nomad April 3, 2012 at 1:01 pm #

      To be honest, Manila is a shithole – but it can be fun! I rate it better than Bangkok but not as good a PP. The likes of Boracay is the visayas is where you want to be.

  25. MonteChristo April 3, 2012 at 1:07 pm #

    I like a bit of shithole myself lol, got my brown wings a few years back! Well sounds like it’s worth a trip, I was thinking of Indonesia but I want to travel in august and the ramadan’s on at that time (I think the girlies put their chastity belt on for a month)

    Thanks again for the inspiration mate

  26. Mexichica July 2, 2012 at 3:34 pm #

    I have lived in Manila for about 3 months now and I lived right behind P. Burgos in Makati which is a go go bar haven. It’s an awesome area for night life and very safe. If you’re the type of person who enjoys go go bars make sure to pay your drinks as you go since they might try to up your bill at the end of the night, the reason I say this is because it happened to my hubby. The girls are all very nice and mostly beautiful but they do expect some sort of reward from you either monetary or a gift if you take them with you, I got to know a few of them since I walked and ate at next to them almost every night. As far as weed comes, well its very low quality and I have to say expensive. The first bag we got was tobbaco :( the second time it was real weed and about a grams worth for P500 about $12 USA and it was super dry and seedy. I did not have very “high” expectations but it did the job. A couple of days ago I moved to a different part of the city called Bonifacio Global City of “The Fort” its a lot more calmer and fancier, hopefully it will go well for me here but I must say I already miss the lady’s with grills cooking all types of kabobs at 2am and the girls looking all dolled up just smiling at strangers.

    I am currently living in Manila, near the Global City. I havent been trying desperately yet to find any green, 4 weeks without is a loooong time for me.. but I would really appreciate if I can get hooked up with a contact. Im a foreigner, and not a cop of any sort.

  43. High March 23, 2013 at 5:30 pm #

    Hello everyone! if you want to get high in manila, you should have someone you can trust. If you are a foreigner then be careful because you can attract a lot of extortionist. You are a big money for them but you can ask the Philippine Marijuana Community Forum http://www.HIGHisCOOL.com if you need some support about Marijuana but they dont allow hook up on their site. They will just give you a lot of infos. Hope this helps

  44. nortie May 8, 2013 at 10:19 pm #

    I was in Manilla last xmas and NY. I couldn’t believe how gorgeous the girls were, all sexy and glistening. Only mistake I made was taking my Fil. g/f. Stupid. Talk about coals to Newcastle. Next trip OMO for definite.

    Hi guys,

    I’m in ermita now and yes the girls are beautiful but they have there own agenda they just want the money .. So if you like playing boring mind games and uncomfortable silences when you refuse to buy her and her friends food and drinks after before or after sex forget it .its heaps cheaper and more satisfying to go to tube 8 .com ..as for the weed its this dark bush looking stuff it will get you stoned for a while but my experience is you need to deal with some dodgy aholes who will try to rip you off ..be careful chances are the weed is better in your own country they are really used to foreigners coming here for this stuff so

    Hey NN, Righteous Blog. I have heard that the do-gooders have stopped all bar fining in Angeles City. Heard anything? Care to comment?

  53. Viking April 8, 2014 at 7:31 am #

    Having come back from Manila and the Phillipines a few days ago and having read this post before and after Id like to share some thoughts and comments around gaming in Manila…

    I was in the philippines for about 5 weeks of which I spent about 2-3 in Manila. I would recommend anyone going here to pipeline, it is essential for hooking up for free and will let you gauge the girl in advance. The Filipinas (locally know as Pinays) are as NN and other say, feminine, with petite asian bodies and spanish/latin shapes. The are almost never rude (at least normal girls, hookers are the way they are), always friendly and take good care of you. What I would say though is that some are TERRIBLY shy when meeting for a date and will expect you to do all the talking, and even to the extent of wanting you to decide for them what to eat for a lunch date(!). I had one girl tell me “order whatever coffee you like for me”, after which I asked “Americano ok?” “yeah”, she replied, only to not touch the coffee for the whole evening as she apparently wasnt a coffee drinking.

    I am the type that like to have a good (social) time on a date too, and pipelining will enable you to weed out the ones that are better conversationists and company. Generally, the more educated ones, who have written careful profiles will be good company.

    Much of the socializing takes place in malls – Greenbelt was my favourite spot as it sports a sort of river with a lot of nice bars and cafes around. Pinays are big on cinema so take one on an afternoon move, hold her hand and then take it on from there.

    The big red light district is called Padre Burgos and is one longish street with gogo bars and strip clubs. For those of us who dont pay for sex, there are some great normal spots next to burgos called HnJ’s, El Chupachabra and Polaris Street.

    An undiscovered gem in Manila is Quezon City, which is a sort of big suburb in Manila. You sort of need a local to take you around to the good places there – hook up with a pinay and ask her to take you there…then you’ll know the place and will be able to go there at your own discretion.

    In total I banged 4 girls while there, and could have banged another 4-5, who unfortunately did not pass quality control. What I would say (which really is kicking in an open door) is that you need a place to staywhere you can bring girls. Unfortunately (from the gaming perspective) I stayed with a friend and as such had limited privacy – had I stayed alone, my count would have been much higher.
