Because the Philippines is an English-speaking nation, the Megacity attracts a lot of students, lecturers, and teachers from around the world. Most students who choose to study in Metro Manila come from different parts of Southeast Asia and from South Korea, while teachers and lecturers come from different parts of the globe. The pay in education especially in private schools and universities is quite good.
The Megacity Manila is the capital of a developing country, a tropical developing country. It therefore qualifies to either a) do some volunteer work or b) take your backpack and climb the caves of Sagada, enjoy the Pristine beaches of Bohol or listen to some of the best live music on Earth in the Megacity itself. The Megacity is a hub for Backpackers and Volunteers, some of who are pursuing these tasks in the whole of Southeast Asia.
Malate – the backpacker´s haven of the city.
