Very nice view. This Historical place in Manila has 4 schools that you can choose to enroll your teens which is very cool since they can visit the place and have fun at the same time. I've studied in Colegio de san de Letran for 4 yrs and enjoyed every minute of stay.

My husband and I recently took a walk around Intramuros. There are several historical buildings, including an old mansion (Casa Filipina), which you can enter and enjoy, but we decided to just stroll around after a visit to Fort Santiago. You can ride a kalesa (horse carriage) if you would rather not walk, which also comes with a commentary from... More

Is there more to ask for? No hustle and bustle perhaps. That is left outside the "walled city". Clean streets, pedestrian friendly.

Treat yourself to at least a 1/2... More

Also called the walled city, the original city of Manila was the seat of government when the Philippines were a component realm of the Spanish Empire.

We were very lucky to sign-up and get a super well informed tour guide. Very friendly and knowledgeable. We took a covered horse cart around Fort Santiago, the Manila National Cathedral and other sites along the way. Worth every peso!

I've been here many times, so much history. This place will awaken your curiosity with the imagination on how life must have been way back during olden times. A good place to unwind, enjoy the old feel surroundings. Now this place has newer restaurants and hotels inside, as well as renovations on some universities, and yes, some beggars, children and...
