The premier city and the nation's capital, Manila is an expansive metropolis that reveals so much about the history of the Philippines and the modern Filipino lifestyle. The megacity offers a lot of ways to immerse oneself in the local culture—from looking for great bargains in the marketplaces to trying out some of the popular street foods. Over the years, Manila has been one of the Philippine cities at the forefront of growth and progress as seen in the rise of swanky commercial areas, business districts, and shopping malls, but its historic landmarks and significant places of interest have solidified it as an important cultural destination in the Philippines as well.

More than just a national park, the Rizal Park is the perennial reminder of patriotism for the locals. It was built on the area where Dr. Jose Rizal, the country's national hero, was executed by the Spaniards. The most photographed spot at the park is the Rizal Monument, sculpted from bronze and granite by a Swiss artist in the early 20th century and contains Rizal's remains. It has been common for foreign dignitaries who visit the country to offer a wreath at the monument. People come to the Rizal Park every day to do outdoor activities like exercise, have picnics, and fly kites.

Another important destination in the city is Intramuros, Manila's oldest district. It was built during the 16th century as the fortress of Miguel Lopez de Legazpi, the first governor general of the Spanish Indies. Over the years, its walls withstood attacks from invading pirates until the fortress was destroyed near the end of World War II. Today, the ruins are frequented by tourists, including the landmarks in the district such as the Manila Cathedral, Fort Santiago, and the San Agustin Church.



By Air
Travelers from all over the country and the rest of the world can reach Manila via the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) in Pasay City. All flights from Philippine Airlines exclusively use the NAIA Terminal 2, while other flights from major international airlines like Emirates, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, All Nippon Airways, and AirAsia are served in Terminals 1, 3, and 4 (Domestic Airport).
 
From the airport, you can ride a taxi or book a ride via GrabCar to your intended destination in Manila. You can also take the premium airport bus, which stops at Manila Hotel near the heart of the city.
 


By Sea
Traveling by sea to Manila from major local cities is also an option. Shipping companies like 2GO Travel have travel routes to Manila from Bacolod, Cebu, Puerto Princesa, and Zamboanga to name a few. From Cebu, the travel time is 22 hours. From Puerto Princesa, it’s 31 hours. From Zamboanga, it’s 42 hours.
 


By Land
Travelers from nearby provinces, especially from Northern Luzon, can also go to Manila by bus. GV Florida, Genesis, Five Star, and Fariñas are just some of the bus lines that head directly to their terminals in Manila’s Sampaloc district.
 


How to Get Around
By Jeeps and Tricycles
Jeeps are the main modes of public transportation in the city. Tricycles and sidecars (the local version of a rickshaw) are also available for short distance trips.
 
By Train
You can also ride trains when moving around the city. The LRT-1 passes through Taft Avenue, taking you from R. Papa Station in the north to Vito Cruz Station in the south. You can also ride LRT-2 from Recto (the western terminus station) to V. Mapa in Sta. Mesa. Another option is the Philippine National Railway, which runs from Tutuban in Divisoria all the way to Vito Cruz.
 
By Taxi and Ridesharing Services
Taxis are the most convenient way to get around the city. Another way is to book a ride through ridesharing services like Grab and Uber.


What to See
The capital of the Philippines, the City of Manila is a booming metropolis bustling with people from all walks of life. During the Spanish colonial period, it was the center of trade and commerce in the pacific, earning the title “Pearl of the Orient.” Beyond the commercial growth, Manila itself is an ideal tourist destination with interesting landmarks that reflect its rich history and a modern lifestyle waiting to be experienced.
 
Landmarks
In the heart of the city is one of the country’s most important landmarks, Rizal Park. More than a leisure spot where families hang out during weekends, the park is also historic for being the place where national hero Dr. Jose Rizal was executed on December 30, 1896. The focal point of the Rizal Park is the Rizal Monument, another popular landmark and perhaps the most photographed spot in the city. It is also where the remains of Dr. Rizal were enshrined.
 
Not too far away from Rizal Park is the walled city of Intramuros. It is the oldest district of Manila which once served as the seat of government during the Spanish colonial period. The fortress was built and designed to withstand both natural and man-made disasters, including attacks from foreign invaders. Much of Intramuros, however, was heavily damaged during the Second World War. Today, the walls of this ancient district still stand, including several Spanish-era structures that see its share of tourists. Intramuros is also home to educational institutions (Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila, Mapua Institute of Technology, and the Colegio de San Juan de Letran to name a few), churches, monuments, and several business and government establishments.
 
The San Agustin Church is a remarkable church located inside Intramuros. This Baroque church was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993. Having been completed in 1607, it holds the distinction of being the oldest structure in all of Metro Manila.
 
The Minor Basilica and Metropolitan Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, also known as the Manila Cathedral, is also found within Intramuros. The cathedral was established in 1571 and has undergone several renovations since it was built. The cathedral serves as the see of the Archbishop of Manila as has been visited by three popes in the past: Pope Paul VI, Pope John Paul II, and Pope Francis.
 
Another important church in Manila is The Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene in Quiapo.  More popularly known as the Quiapo Church, it is where the iconic image of the Black Nazarene is enshrined. The basilica takes center stage every January 9 in celebration of the annual feast of the Black Nazarene.
 
Another distinct church in Manila is the San Sebastian Church, also located in the Quiapo area. Built in 1891, this Gothic church is known to be the only all-steel structure in the country.
 
Other important landmarks to visit in the City of Manila include The Malacañan Palace, also known as Malacañang, the official residence of the President of the Philippines; and The University of Santo Tomas, the oldest university in Asia. Lastly, the Manila City Hall is a recognizable establishment in the city because of its imposing clock tower—the largest of its kind in the country.
 
Natural Attractions
With a coastline of 190 kilometers, the glorious Manila Bay is a sight to behold along Roxas Boulevard in Manila. Every day, city dwellers visit the promenade to take a stroll, jog, or to watch the stunning sunset.
 
Man-Made Attractions
The National Museum of the Philippines is found near Rizal Park and just minutes away from Intramuros. It is composed of the National Art Gallery, the National Museum of Anthropology, the National Museum of Natural History, and the National Planetarium. These places are highly recommended for those who want to learn more about the history, arts, and culture of the Philippines.
 
Not too far away is the Manila Ocean Park, an oceanarium behind the Quirino Grandstand. The Manila Ocean Park has several sections showcasing different types of fascinating sea creatures. There are also facilities where you can enjoy live interaction with the animals, a mall with marine-themed memorabilia for sale, and a hotel where you can enjoy “sleeping with the fishes.”
 
The Museo Pambata and the Manila Zoo are other kid-friendly places in the city. The Museo Pambata is located in Ermita, right along Roxas Boulevard and near the US Embassy. It is an interactive museum where kids can interact with the exhibits using their total senses. The Manila Zoo, on the other hand, is located in Malate and has been around since 1959. The zoo is home to about a thousand animals including a Bengal tiger, Malayan civet, monitor lizards, and a hippopotamus. An Asian elephant called Mali is the zoo’s oldest resident, having lived there since 1977.
 
Events and Festivals
Each district in the city celebrates its own feast every year. The most anticipated, however, is the Feast of the Black Nazarene every January. This event draws in more than a million devotees to the streets of Quiapo to join the procession of the holy image of the Black Nazarene or Traslación. Donning yellow and maroon shirts, devotees try to get close to the Andas or carriage to hold on to the large ropes that pull the Black Nazarene forward as panata or religious pledge.
 
While the Philippines is known to celebrate Chinese New Year every year, the grandest celebration is held in the district of Binondo, also known as the oldest Chinatown in the world. The festivities are complete with fireworks displays, dragon dances, concerts, bazaars, and the grand countdown. Business also thrives because of the numerous shops that sell charms, figurines, round fruits, and tikoy—a sticky rice cake known to attract luck and prosperity for the new year.

For good ‘ol Filipino dishes, The Aristocrat is one of the most sought-after places in the city. Located right in front of Malate Church, the restaurant is known for their chicken barbecue and  their java rice. Their sotanghon soup, mechado, pinakbet, and crispy pata are also popular among its patrons. The restaurant itself has been around since 1936.
 
Aside from Starbucks and Coffee Bean which are dime a dozen in the city, coffee lovers must visit the Korean-themed Café Travel in Taft. Beyond Coffee in the Sampaloc area is also another must-try, especially for their butterscotch caramel mocha beverage known as “sexy blend.” For desserts, Café Breton has a delectable selection of crepes, while Café Mary Grace offers succulent cakes and their signature ensaymada.
 
Bars and Clubs
The Malate district is known as the party central of the City of Manila. The Orosa and Nakpil Streets are lined with bars and clubs where you can enjoy great music and drinks. Some of the favorite nightspots in the Malate area are Oarhouse Pub, Tambayan Gastrobar, EXKLUSIV, and Hobbit House. The Sky Deck in Intramuros is also a classy place to check out.
