The things to do in Manila are totally befitting the capital of the diverse and beautiful nation of The Philippines. Manila has rather an eclectic personality and is often described as a collection of towns rather than a discrete, complete city but to me, that just makes it all the more exciting. The things to do in Manila will take you on various adventures in a number of neighborhoods so you can get acquainted with the city’s various faces.
1. Visit Old Colonial Manila
One of the most picturesque places to go in Manila is the old part of the city called Intramuros. You can amble along on a walking tour or be your own guide. See the spectacular colonial architecture that survived World War II up close and learn about the interesting Spanish and American fusion of culture and history. Another way to see the old part of the city is from a calesa i.e. a traditional horse drawn carriage.
