If you have to se one thing in Manila, this is the one. (Of course, if you have no interest in history, this may not interest you.). We couldn't do the walking tour ... but I have heard great things about it and would urge you to explore that. We did a horse carriage tour and the kids loved it.... More

Manila Cathedral and San Augustin are a must visit for their architecture. Noteworthy is the statue of Jesus in the church. Around the wall of the city one can the cannon used and other items. The...

It has a fascinating architecture and a lot of history in the place. Best to check out the Walk This Way (Carlos Celdran Walking Tour) and Bambike's biking tour.

I would suggest to go with a tour guide as we learnt a lot from the guide that we would not have known on our own, they are very relaxed with looking around inside all the old buildings and there was a decent souvenir shop

When you stay in Manila and in particular in de area of Luzon you must have seen the site of Intramuros. This authentic place seems dead but the experience is so alive. ... words cannot describe the atmosphere around the site. Just visit and live it.

Didn't spent much time but it was very beautiful and interesting, would definitely come back. Love the old city, the rock roads and the old churches.

Intramuros is undoubtedly the top attraction of the city, connecting to the entire city through a dense network of buses that stop near the walls. The era involved is immense, but with a little 'patience you can turn around entirely just by walking, or as I did just negotiating with one of the hundreds bicycle drivers that run around the...
