The od town area of Manila is a tourist must to see. This gives one a feeling of the past history of the city. We did the buggy ride around town.

The intramuros is the old town in manila surrounded by stone walls. Soo many old historical buildings built hundreds of years ago. No visit to this city would be complete without visiting this area.

It was very interesting and informative to visit this city walled in. Build by the Spanish to keep themselves separate from everyone else it was nice walking though the city to see what they have done to it. If you have time, you should check it out.

Manila has few tourist attractions of the kind that other cities in SE Asia may have such as significant historical sites. Intramuros is about the extent of it. It's worth having a wander around but don't have high expectations. There are lots of very annoying hawkers who won't take no for an answer but it gives you an appreciation of... More

Walled city very easy to walk around or bargain with local tricycle or horse and carriage. Price can be very fluid. Casa Manila interesting to see as well as exploring the churches, historic buildings, etc that survived WWII bombing. Couple of interesting shops with local handicrafts.

went here after my Binondo Food Trip(one bridge away) I entered at the gate near Letran. went up the wall and saw that it was indeed thick and wide that cars will fit on them. Anyway, as a thrifty solo traveller, i opted to have a DIY walking tour. It took me around 3 hours to see most of the... More

Then after 1hr we had only covered 3/4 of the buildings... More

Took a bicycle rickshaw ride that was delightful and informative. We liked it so much we gave a big tip, which we don't often do. I wish that we had stayed in the old city. Lots to see, it has been cleaned up a treat since my first time in '79! Wow. Go there, stay at a hotel there, you... More
