We recently had the fantastic opportunity of traveling to the capital city of the Philippines…the highly urbanized Manila. Currently Manila is the most densely populated city in the world. While visiting that area we traveled to the Hidden Valley Springs resorts located in a rich tropical rain forest filled with the peaceful sounds of native birds. The highlights of this location are swimming in the hot springs & volcanic mineral water. We also visited the famous Walled City Intramuros and specifically went to Fort Santiago which had beautiful architecture. Everywhere we went we enjoy seeing the beautiful Filipino local people as well.
