Best Instagrammable Spots Near Your Condo in Manila

Nov 16, 2021

Metro Manila has now shifted to a more relaxed alert level status. Just like the previous alert level, the metro is now placed in alert level 2. It means that going out has no age-related restriction. Alert Level 2 also allows certain establishments to increase capacity for business and activities such as restaurant dine-in and beauty salons, as well as religious activities. 

The pandemic has affected everyone’s opportunity to explore and go out.  You might even miss posting travel updates from your Instagram account. Instagram has become an important travel companion for travelers to share their experiences with. It is always used to let your followers know where you visit, where to eat, and what to see.
