Edsa Shangri-La, Manila, The Philippines


This huge hotel is part of the sprawling Shangri-la complex of multiple hotels, much to the confusion our taxi-drivers. It’s styled like a beach-resort – a little odd for a city hotel – but it was originally designed to give Metro-Manileños some staycation chic. Our Tower Wing Edsa Suite on the top floor showcased views back into the CBD. It was a little over the top in size and appointment, but what a first world problem to contend with!


At OutThere, we believe in boundless travel. But we understand that some destinations can pose challenges to travellers that complicate visiting them. We advise all visitors to inform themselves about local legislation and customs, and to work with a trusted travel provider in order to ensure a safe and pleasant holiday.
