It was the final stretch of my Luzon trip. The plan was to base in Manila and go on as many day trips as possible. Although spending a week on this leg of the trip, I didn't get to see as many places as I wanted due to the awful traffic getting out and in the metro.

I did get to visit some interesting spots in Laguna and Cavite as well as a couple of detours in Metro Manila.
