What to do in Manila
Manila has plenty of great places to satisfy your wanderlust. Being the capital city of the Philippines, and the gateway for tourists and travellers to Luzon, it’s a destination for tasty food, funky bars and nightclubs, historic destinations, great shopping, and so much more.
See the last footsteps of our national hero in the iconic walled city of Intramuros. Ride the horse-drawn kalesa as you go on a tour and take pictures. Don’t forget to bring your camera to our most important monument of Jose Rizal at Rizal Park, which you might know as Luneta Park.
Check out our own version of the White House and ride a taxi to Malacañan Palace. Catch a show or the sunset at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. Spend hours browsing through the National Museum of the Philippines and be amazed by Juan Luna’s Spoliarium.
Are you getting hungry right about now? Ride the jeep to Binondo and get your fill of delicious Chinese food. You can also ride the kalesa around the world’s oldest Chinatown for some shopping and to see Binondo Church.
Get the best bargains in Divisoria and Greenhills. And if you’re travelling with kids, you’ll enjoy Mall of Asia, where you can go ice skating, ride a Ferris wheel, watch a movie, and go shopping too.
Spend an afternoon in Baywalk and see one of the best sunsets in the world. Your fellow Pinoys actually call it legendary, and you’ll easily agree when you see it in person.
Be part of the biggest events in Manila, including Chinese New Year in Binondo, Feast of the Black Nazarene in Quiapo, the Cinemalaya independent film festival in CCP, and many more.
If you have more time, go on a food trip in Quezon City, visit Makati, and explore Bonifacio Global City in Taguig too.
