Mesmerizing Manila: Hub of the Philippines
A beautiful metropolis with a vibrant culture.
Sights to See
While you’re in Manila, book a walking tour with one of the most sought-after tourist guides and socially influential personalities in the country: Carlos Celdran. He’ll take you on a witty, uncensored, and unforgiving tour of the walled city of Intramuros. If you have enough time to spare, take a tour of Corregidor Island, a rocky island off the coast of Manila Bay that pays homage to the Filipino, American, and Japanese soldiers who fell there during the war. You can also visit the National Museum of the Philippines, home to multiple collections of historical Filipino art and artifacts. Lastly, don’t miss the Metropolitan Museum at the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Complex, featuring an astonishing gold collection with pieces that rival today’s most intricate jewelry.
While there, you’re certain to catch a glimpse of the Philippines’ trademark transportation – the Jeepney.
