What is there to see and do in Manila?
The capital city of the Philippines, Manila is located next to Manila Bay and as such benefits from sea views. Once colonised by the Spanish, relics from this time can still be seen throughout the city: Spanish colonial architecture such as that found in Intramuros, a walled area in Manila, is one such example. The San Augustin Church, Fort Santiago, and Plaza de Armas can all be found here. There’s also the Rizal Park, the National Museum of the Philippines, and the Malacañang Palace to discover, before filling up on some local Philippine cuisine.
