Manila could be ideal destination for those who have love for big city. The capital of Philippines is second name of frenetic pace, shop till drop options, drool inducing dining joints and numerous colonial buildings. With 12 million people, the city offers a great diversity which attracts wanderers towards the city. The city is a great destination in itself but not as dazzling as its Asian rivals like Bangkok and Singapore. With impressive colonial history, magnificent architecture and jovial population, the city provides enough reasons to keep demand for Manila flights soaring.
Here we are listing a number of things to do in Manila.
Be a History Buff
If you want to explore city differently, then you should take a look on its history and you will find the whole experience interesting. Visit the colonial buildings, explore China Town or see the historical artefacts at National Museum. Every experience is enriching and unique to the core.
Have an Ear for Music
You may have visited various music shows and festivals but brace for music of a different kind. Visit Saint Joseph Church and get entertained by music of only bamboo organ in the world. This nineteenth century church organ is made up of bamboo. The bamboo organ is declared a National Cultural Treasure and now attracting tourists from different corners of the world.
Shop, Sleep, Shop
Metro Manila is also a shoppers’ paradise as tourists can find designer labels from around the world here. The city is replete with designer boutiques which are often raided by shop-till-drop brigade. Greenhills is the shoppers’ hubs but it is also very crowded. We suggest you to go to Mandaluyong where you can shop at Malls like SM Megamall, Shangri-La Plaza, and The Podium that offers an array of local and international brands. There are hotels and accommodations in the surrounding so if you are tired off shopping you can retire in your cosy hotel rooms.
