Highlights of Manila

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 300

FIRST-CLASS | PRIVATE-GUIDED: At first sight, Manila appears to be only a bustling metropolis. Once the older parts of the city are discovered, history and a culture influenced by the Spanish and US come to the fore.


The Philippines’ capital is a decidedly busy, teeming metropolis but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have much to offer the visitor. There is much history attached to the city and as for shopping and dining, there are excellent centrally located modern malls and good restaurants are everywhere. One advantage in Manila is that English is widely spoken.

During your stay here, sightseeing will revolve mainly around the historic quarter called Intramuros in the core of the city, originally the seat of the Spanish Colonial government. It is surrounded by a high wall and Spanish Colonial influences are very apparent in the architecture and infrastructure. Start with a visit to Rizal Park located adjacent to Intramuros. This park named after Dr. Jose Rizal, a Philippine national hero, is very popular with the local community and is their “city” park. Inside Intramuros, which then becomes a walking tour, visit Fort Santiago, a citadel built by the Spanish in the 16th Century. Afterwards, enter San Augustin Church, a Roman Catholic Church constructed during the Spanish Colonial period.

Exiting Intramuros, head to Casa Manila, a reproduction of a Spanish Colonial house reflecting the lifestyle of the gentry of that time. The house contains some excellent antique furniture. Finally visit Bahay Tsinoy, a museum which represents the Chinese community who settled in Manila.

Day 2

Half Day Charms of Old Manila

Take a step back in time as you discover the "Charms of Old Manila". The tour starts with a visit to historic Rizal Park, where the remains of our country's national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal, lie within the cornerstone of Rizal Monument. Tour heads on to the old walled city of Intramuros built during the Spanish colonial period. The first stop is Fort Santiago which served as headquarters of the military might of the Spanish, American and Japanese colonizers until its destruction in 1945. Tour then proceeds past the San Agustin Church, the oldest structure in the country which dates back to 1571. The next stop is Casa Manila, a reconstruction 19th century mansion replete with 16th to 19th century furniture and furnishings. The last stop is a visit to the newly-opened "Bahay Tsinoy", a museum of the Chinese in Philippine life.
