Going ashore in Manila

Manila

The capital of Philippines, Manila, is the biggest and most crowded port and city of the country. The Metropolis of Manila – or Metro Manila, how the locals are calling it – includes the city of Manila and some other smaller cities and municipalities and it has an area of more than 600 sq. km. The Port has 2 distinct port container terminals – Manila North and Manila South – and our vessel called both terminals, with an average stay of 24 hours in the North and 12 hours in the South.
