“Binondo Church”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

My trip to Manila will not be complete without visiting Binondo Church. Paying Homage to the blessed Virgin Mary Is important than any other areas to visit. A devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary may inspire us of our day to day activities. This is the place also where I will not only pray but we can also buy souvienir

“The world's oldest Chinatown...loved it!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

This area was exactly what I was looking for...small, narrow streets, markets, and friendly people! It's a great location to shoot photos...but expect sensory-overload from the sounds, smells and sights! Enjoy!

“Shop”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Great place for shoppers who wants to explore good-finds on its cheapest price! Don't be fooled by the pedicab drivers that require you to pay P60 and above just to travel from Binondo to LRT Recto when going home. Also, be careful with your things and don't wear flashy clothes and jewelries or anything that will attract the greatest snatchers on ph. haha. Be careful :P

“Great place for Gold”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you are looking for quality jewelry made of white gold, Binondo or Ongpin is the best place to go especially if you're in a tight budget. However, you have to be very careful (not just from snatchers or pickpockets) because some may sell you fake ones.
