Travel website TripAdvisor has named Manila as one of its top 10 Asian destinations on the rise, putting the Philippine capital behind Jakarta in Indonesia, Kathmandu in Nepal, and Calcutta in India.

 

Bernadette Joven of the Philippine Star reports TripAdvisor, which allows users to rate and review tourist spots and hotels, described the Philippines as  "historic and modern, rich and poor... filled with museums, shops, parks and churches, plus enough nightlife to last until dawn." Manila outranked "Bangalore, India; Luang Prabang, Laos; Phnom Penh, Cambodia; Chiang Mai, Thailand; and the Japanese cities of Kobe and Osaka," the report said.

 

The top 10 list is part of TripAdviser’s Traveler’s Choice 2012 awards, which has the tagline: "Chosen by millions of travelers".
