A city with a dynamic spirit

Whether you seek to explore historical landmarks, indulge in culinary delights, or immerse in the local art scene, Manila provides a rich tapestry of experiences.

The capital of the Philippines, Manila is a bustling metropolis that offers a dynamic and diverse holiday experience.

A city replete with cultural treasures. The walled city of Intramuros takes you back in time with its Spanish colonial architecture, historic churches, and cobblestone streets. Visit Fort Santiago and the San Agustin Church, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites, to delve into the city's colonial past.

The city boasts an array of museums and galleries. The National Museum showcases Filipino art and history, while the Ayala Museum features exquisite displays of Filipino art and culture. Contemporary art spaces, like Pinto Art Museum and the Cultural Center of the Philippines, offer a glimpse into the local art scene.

Manila hosts numerous festivals and events throughout the year. The Pahiyas Festival in Lucban celebrates a bountiful harvest with vibrant house decorations, while the Panagbenga Festival in Baguio features grand parades and intricate floats.

Regardless of the time of year, Manila’s nightlife scene is always buzzing. The city's districts, such as Makati and Bonifacio Global City, offer an array of bars, clubs, and live music venues. Enjoy a vibrant night out in Poblacion, known for its diverse culinary and entertainment offerings.

Malls are a big part of Manila's culture, offering shopping, dining, entertainment, and more. Mall of Asia is one of the world's largest malls, while Greenhills Shopping Center specializes in jewelry and electronics. Shopaholics will revel in Manila's diverse shopping experiences. Visit Divisoria for bargain deals, explore the high-end boutiques at Greenbelt and Bonifacio High Street, or haggle for local handicrafts at the markets in Quiapo.
