As a history teacher, I found this place to be informative, attractive and a place to rest from the hustle and bustle of Manila. The changing of guards in something unique and I recommend all to visit this place when in Manila. You can also...More

In any other city, this park would not even be worth mentioning, but since Manila has hardly any green space within the city for recreation purposes, this little park will do. It has a small Chinese garden and a Japanese garden (the latter was closed...More

Luneta Park is surprisingly a good place to stroll with your family for free. There is a bus that brings tourists around for a fee and the size of the area and the sights and sounds are comparable to Hyde Park in Sydney. It offers...More

I don't think so. If you just pick up or alight is ok. Car may be parking a bit far from the Park.

If we only have time for one museum, which one? (19 Replies)
Unfortunately we only have two full days in Manila to explore, one of them a Monday when all museums are closed. Two questions: 1. If we only have time to see one museum, which one should it be? We are interested in history, not so interested in art. We are in Makati so the Ayala museum would be convenient, but not sure how it compares to the other museums in Manila. 2. Plan on hiring a driver to see Rizal Park, Intramuros, Binondo, etc on one of the days. Ok to do on Monday, or would...More

Intramuros can take all day and contains 2 Rizal museums. The National Museum is in Rizal Park. You don't need a driver. They are short distances only and taxis would suffice. I often walk from Intramuros to Binondo.

Back from the Philippines... (3 Replies)
thanks to all who helped with responses and advice on our recent trip to the Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong and Macau. We started our trip in the Philippines, staying at the Sofitel in Manila, and due to the really poor weather spent far more time than we'd expected at the Mall Of Asia. Some of the main things we did during our couple of days there were: - American Cemetery - Intramuros (took a horse-drawn carriage through the streets) - Rizal Park - walked from the hotel along...More

How safe is Manila? (88 Replies)
We're spritely seniors and will be in Manila in April 2010. We're considering staying at the Diamond Hotel in Ermita. How safe it is to walk along the esplanade and Intramuros and possibly the Chinese Cemetery and also Rizal Park? And is it safe in the evening to walk around Roxas Boulevard? Later, on our return trip after touring around, we'll probably stay in Makati or Ortigas areas. Are these safe areas to walk around?

I am a senior and Manila is safer than any city in Europe or America.
