Alabang is a nice and posh area but not many old buildings to photograph. If you have only one place to visit, make it Manila's old Chinatown (Binondo). It is a world away in more sense than one.

Intramuros for some Spanish architecture and old Manila. Quiapo for street photography (careful of pickpockets) Roxas Boulevard for some landscapes or sunset.

No problem, it's the best way I can promote my country :) Since you are in Alabang, might as well head down to Tagaytay to see Taal Volcano. Its a 1 hr drive only. Scenic view for sure :) enjoy!

And, for the love of all that's good and holy, don't casually flash your gear around. You'll be a prime target for the snatch-thieves on their motorcycles.
