Manila formally the City of Manila is the capital of the Philippines and a very urbanized metropolis. It is the most heavily populated city proper in the world as of 2019. It was the first leased city under the Philippine Commission Act 183 on 31 July 1901 and gained independence with the passage of Republic Act No. 409 or the "Revised Charter of the City of Manila" on 18 June 1949. Manila, alongside Mexico City and Madrid, is considered the world's unique set of Global Cities because of Manila's commercial networks being the first to cross the Pacific Ocean. They are thus joining Asia with the Spanish Americas, marking the first time in world history when a continuous chain of trade routes circled the planet.

Planning is a good way to go traveling, be it domestically or internationally, but don’t disregard the fact that things can and most likely would not go as planned. This could either be due to suddenly the activity you want to do is unavailable or if more logistical issues force you to think of other ways to do things. Keep in mind that plan is a good base, but when you are traveling and there are a lot of external factors involved, it will be a different kind of adventure.
There is a saying that doesn’t keep all your money with your person when you travel, but that doesn’t mean you should not bring extra money at all. Keep extra credit and atm cards with you when you travel. This will help greatly when things go south and believe me, it probably will. Keeping cards instead of cash with your person is better and safer.
This will come in handy when you are traveling to a place where English is not their first, second, or only language at all. It is best to learn some local words that can help you through the trip, especially in terms of direction, transportation, medical, and such. Plus, it will open a ton of network opportunities with the locals to be able to be among them. You will be able to make friends and discover some hidden gems you never thought you would find.
This might sound ridiculous but it is important nonetheless. We tend to underestimate ourselves and assume we have it all in our heads. It is best to have it with you at all times because when you need a specific direction back, you can refer to it easily. It is best to keep it on paper as well because you will never know when the handy-dandy technology will fail you when you need it the most.
We are not going minimalist here, but minimalism can help you get more things done. In order to determine how many you should bring with you, you should always go back to the question of where and what. Where are you going? What will you be doing? This will bring you back to the consideration if you do a lot of walking, then it is best to bring something you are comfortable with. The key example is to wear your everyday clothes because you know what you are comfortable with to go about your day. Don’t overthink too much on a “just in case” situation because that is the number one trap to bring more with you and in the end, it will just make your bag heavier with things you can either reuse or get easier there.
Be it whether you are traveling domestic or international, it is important to gear yourself up with travel insurance. Traveloka itself provides travel insurance from Chubbs.

Even if you are traveling domestically, should things go out of your control such as accidents or sickness, you will have the leverage of insurance coverage.
Despite the beauty of the world, it is not necessarily a safe one. Even if you are doing a solo trip, always keep in touch with your family and/or friends. Let them have a copy of your itinerary so that they have an idea of where you are. Keep them close in contact each day and let them know when you are changing locations during your trip.
