For some time I thought downtown Hanoi, with its helter skelter street scene of zig-zagging motorbikes, traveling hawkers and scam artists was the most hectic, bewildering area I've visited so far. Curiously, I've forgotten all about good old Quiapo.
Like I said before, even Burma's Shwedagon Pagoda on a Buddhist holiday feels like Sunday compared to this place.
Foreigners can be forgiven if they get stressed out simply trying to navigate Quiapo's streets. But to true-blue Manileños, this place is, well - home.
