Re: how expensive in Manila now

Philippines is cheaper for shopping comparing to the USA. You will find everything you need there.

Why you want to go to Baclaran? while there are big shopping malls in Manila. I'm as local Filipino scared to walk around the Baclaran. I would not recommend Baclaran unless you have a Filipino company with you

Mall of Asia is very huge where you find eveything in one roof

Re: how expensive in Manila now

thank you for your advice.
Baclaran comes to mind because I've been there several times but with a group of friends who speak tagalog.

Philippines electrical plug is the same as in US with a flat head

I don't know which iphone type you have?
I have an iphone 7+ here in Belgium and I'm fine with my iphone charger in the Philippines

Manila is not expensive as European and American countries. You can enjoy travelling at cheapest price.

Not that expensive, you can buy that in Manila and there are a lot of stores in the city , for instance in central manila there were few convenience stores just walking distance from my hotel
