Mabini used to be like that. Makati is still like that at least on the weekends. But no, they are not like the bar district in NYC.

A lot of people hate Manila because it's crowded, dirty, and smokey and the traffic but if you like cities and you like nightlife then Manila definitely has a lot of it in spades so you'll enjoy.
Re poster who said an hour to\from the airport from malate. Maybe I'm lucky but it's actually never taken me that long to get to the airport. I am in the Phils now and just left Manila a couple days ago it took about 20-25 minutes from\to the airport and Malate.

Thanks everyone! Turns out I won't have time to hit Manila this time around. I'm sure I'll be back within the next couple years though so I'll get there eventually.

My itinerary is Hong Kong-Macau-Zhongshan-Penang-Singapore-Bangkok-Kuala Lumpur-Taipei

I have lots of friends and family in every one of those cities, but I welcome general advice from this forum!

Well Manila and the rest of the provincial area was hit by strong typhoon lately. 3 days in a row with continuous rain, so right now it's not the right time to visit but I'm sure within few weeks you may visit there specially this coming holiday season. So you'll experience the different Christmas holidays in the Philippines.
