3Not many decent beaches within day trip distance of Manila. Make it 2-3 days and you have some options... Subic/Zambales, Puerto Galera, some in Batangas, or fly to Boracay.
There's different kinds of nightlife, not clear on what you're after. Makati has a bit of all of them... upscale yuppie clubbing in the Fort, pay-for-play around P. Burgos, funky live music scene at places like SaGuijo and B-Side. Also a fair bit of varied nightlife in Makati.
To me the only must-see thing in Manila is Manila receding as fast as possible in my rear-view mirror, but I guess some people like it...

5The best places in Manila are the graveyards. American, Chinese and Paco Park. And getting away, preferably at high speed, haha, traffic permitting. Agree no good beaches near Manila. Cool daytrip, Taal volcano and it is a bit cooler up there.

6Last line of post above should read that there's also a fair bit of vaired nightlife in Malate. My mistake.
Corregidor is also a good day trip. If "party with young hot females" refers to the ones you pay, there's always Angeles. Might have to have a few drinks before the young females start looking hot. If you're not after the pay-for-play scene, Boracay is the party beach.

7Given the last few posts, I'm probably crazy to suggest that Manila has tourist sites, but let me be crazy enough to suggest that Manila has tourist sites. At the very, very least, see Intramuros, especially now that the Ayuntamiento (old City Hall) has been rebuilt and now houses the Bureau of the Treasury.
You could do Batangas as a daytrip if you really want beaches, but be prepared to leave early so that you can spend as much time there as possible.

8Actually just realized Boracay is only a quick 1 hour flight away. I think I will make a day trip there and stay one night.

7th High or Republiq.
If you fly to Kalibo it's a quick flight but then the bus ride is about 2 hours to the port.
From Manila you can get to Puerto Galera in a couple of hours. White beach is like a mini Boracay.

10If you fly to Caticlan, as most would, Boracay is only minutes from the airport.
