Tap water is usually safe to drink in Manila, but ask if unsure. Take care with seafood as some may not be as fresh as it looks. Typhoid vaccinations are recommended if staying longer than a week and venturing outside of the city. Malaria is not a problem in Manila but is on remoter Philippines islands such as Palawan.
