    Hi everyone,

    This might seem like a strange question, but I was wondering if anyone has any pictures of the streets of Manila that they wouldn't mind sharing? I've looked at loads of stuff from Google searches, etc. But all the things I search have an agenda and that's not to show the streets as a person standing in them would see them.

    I'm generally interested as I like strange things. And I like the idea of having some kind of image in my head of the place I'm going to be walking about. I'm going to ask my friend over there to take some pictures, but just though someone on here might have some readily available.

    Couple of young lads working the taxi's, they are runners for your taxi, they will get you one and open your door for you.

    Awesome mate, thanks. That's the kind of thing I'm looking for. Are these of any area in particular? Looks more modern than I was expecting, but I guess that can change quite radically moving from city to city in Manila?

    That's a pretty good taxi 60% will be much worse than that :D

    These are all from around Metro Manila some from the southern cities some from districts of old Manila.

    I have many many more I will try to find some but not all are online currently so I will try to dig them out.
