MANILA

Manila is the capital of the Philippines, the center of governance, education, religion and finance in the country. This sprawling city is known for its churches, its diverse and complicated culture, colonial history, gigantic malls, bustling markets, hidden architectural gems and vibrant nightlife.

Manila has seen a drastic improvement in its museum offerings with the recent renovation of old favorites such as the National Museum of the Filipino People and the Ayala Museum. Other must-see museums in the city are the Bahay Chinoy (Chinese House), Casa Manila, San Agustin Museum and the Museum of Filipino Political History, the "Museo Pambata" children's museum'.

Designed by Daniel Burnham, Rizal Park is the Philippines' answer to Paris' Jardin des Tuileries or Washington Mall. Gaze at Rizal Monument, a must stopping point for Heads of State visits, the Japanese & Chinese Gardens, the National Museum, the Planetarium, the Ocean Park, the Museo Pambata, as well as the Quirino Grandstand, the oath-taking stand for Presidential inaugurations.

One of the experiences that you must try in Manila is shopping and the best way to get a feel for Manila shopping is to go to a ‘tiangge’, a market of stalls where everything can be bargained. There are a lot of flea markets scattered around the city catering to handicrafts, clothes, antiques, and curios souvenirs. Market! Market!, St. Francis Square, Greenhills Shopping Center and Tiendesitas are examples of popular flea markets.

Manila has one of the largest and oldest Chinatowns in the world, where one can find exotic Chinese goods and delicious cuisine. Street Food is often described as "Pamatid Gutom" or food to tide over, something to temporarily hush a stomach growl, sold at small food stalls, food stands, or food carts set up in places with high amount of pedestrian traffic. Pansit is one of the ultimate selections when it comes to Filipino comfort food. This is made out of noodles that are either boiled and has a variety of toppings or are sautéed together with its savory components.
