Philippine Nightlife Websites

This really isn’t a nightlife web site, and I don’t want to start posting photos from inside the bars here. There are many other web sites available for that purpose.

Here are a couple I really like.

Philippines Nightlife – Philippines Nightlife is a very cool looking web site with image galleries of bars and clubs, and information on hotels and restaurants. They also allow business owners to have their own blogs!

Subic Bay and Barretto Bars – a bar review and image gallery site for the Barrio Barretto area of Subic Bay. Starting to post news items and other information of interest, rather than just bar photos.

Philippine Nightlife Business Directory – a Business Directory for Philippine Nightlife. Includes Angeles City, Subic Bay, and Manila. Business owners can submit their listing for free.

If you know of any other good resources, please post them in the comments. When you do, please use plain text for the URL to the site – don’t use HTML code or I might think it’s spam.

New Photo Gallery: 2011 Aliwan Festival

What a fantastic event. The 2011 Aliwan Fiesta brought 18 festivals from all around the Philippine Islands together to perform and compete in the largest combined festival in the country.

The Aliwan Fiesta is a gathering of traditional cultural festivals from provinces all over the Philippines. These photos are from the 2011 Aliwan Festival in Pasay, Manila, April 17th, 2011.

If I had the power to change one thing about the Aliwan festival, I would simply add a subtitle to the event name: Festival of Smiles.

As you browse though the photos, it is my sincere hope that you will feel the warmth and friendship that was extended to me on this long, hot day in Manila.

Baguio City was represented by the Panagbenga festival.
