We will meet at the lobby of a popular hostel in Poblacion, Makati and walk to our first stop located just a few blocks away. Get to know the history of the area as we enjoy our first round of drinks. The first one is more of a speak easy place and an ideal spot for conversations. We will return to the hostel and visit the rooftop on the 7th floor, but this time, the drinks is on me. This caters to the backpackers crowd and has nightly entertainment. Afterwards, we will visit the last and highest rooftop bar. This is where you can appreciate the best view of Makati and the surrounding cities. I can assist you find your ride back to your accommodation or recover from drinking with some noodles and dimsum from my favourite Chinese restaurant.
I'm Omar, an Architect. 2 years ago I retired from my day job to pursue a startup featured on CNN Philippines, The Final Pitch (PH version of Shark Tank). Initially, I wanted to establish my own business to have control of my time & finance my love for travels documented on my blog (www.moleinthefoot.blogspot.com) The travel bug bit me first, and is now a Department of Tourism Accredited Tour Guide. Together with my batch mates in the tourism guiding course, we're taking this opportunity to improve and show guests the beauty of our city. I have 10 experiences to offer. I am now creating a tour agency with my batch mates as my core team. On a personal note, I was raised in the historical part of Manila, & my university within the walls of Intramuros.
