Manila - The Heart and Soul of the Philippines

Manila is a gateway to the Philippine archipelago’s exquisite landscapes, beaches, and historic landmarks. Iconic sites in the heart of Manila include the walled-city of Intramuros with its Spanish colonial streets, the World Heritage Site of San Agustin Church, Manila Cathedral, Rizal Park, and the National Museum, to name a few. The mix of Spanish, American, Chinese, and Malay influences make the Philippine culture unique and diverse in the Southeast Asian region. A stroll down these areas are perfect for those who wish to experience the richness of Filipino identity and history.

Aside from its rich cultural heritage, Manila has so much more to offer to visitors – from Quezon City’s food parks and cafes in Maginhawa, to Greenhills’ thrift shopping, and Makati’s hip Poblacion neighborhood for drinks. A visit to the Philippines won’t be complete without getting a taste of authentic Filipino cuisine such as adobo, sisig, inasal, halo-halo, paired with a cold glass of beer and the warm Filipino hospitality.
