Gay Manila Hotels

Gay-friendly hotels are in abundance in the Malate district, which is the the hub of gay night life in Manila, according to Austine Considine, a former feature travel writer for the "New York Times." Manila is also home to the Progressive Organization of Gays in the Philippines (ProGay) who led the first gay pride march in Asia in the early 1990s. Being the capital of the Philippines, the city of Manila houses a plethora of cultural landmarks and entertainment bars.
