Manila, Philippines

Officially known as the Republic of Philippines, the country boasts a vividly coloured, multi-cultural heritage and is home to over 95 million. The capital, Manila, is the second largest city in the Philippines and the nation’s center of education, transport and business.

16 territorial districts, each distinguished by their history, culture and cuisine, together make up the city.

Visit one of the oldest and largest “Chinatowns” in the World for shopping and authentic Chinese cuisine – Binondo was created by the Spanish Governor Luis Pérez Dasmariñas as a settlement for Chinese immigrants and this district dates back to 1584! If history and architecture is of interest to you then a visit to Intramuros is highly recommended. This district is home to many fine restaurants and impressive stone structures including walls, gates and fortresses.

Right beside Manila City, and only a short taxi ride away, lies Makati City, also known as the financial center of the Philippines. The primary language spoken in Makati is English and tourists can enjoy high end shopping malls, luxurious dining spots and a tip to Ayala and Yuchengco, two art, history and culture museums.

Highly regarded in terms of harbours, is Manila Bay. Join the crowds of people who flock here to enjoy spectacular sunset views but, for safety, do not go in the water. The Baywalk, a long promenade alongside the water hosts musicians and street vendors, giving it that buzzing atmosphere that makes it an enjoyable experience for all.

Museums, chapels and cultural centers are great places to explore to get a better understanding of the city’s rich culture and history.

The cultural center of the Philippines, Pasay, is home to the world famous Coconut Palace, also known as Tahanang Pilipino (Filipino Home) which is the residence and workplace of the Vice President of the Philippines. Made of coconut shells as well as other interesting materials, the magnificent structure is a must visit on a trip to Manila!
