An evocative blend of history & culture

Manila is a city with more sights to see than Imelda Marcos had shoes. There’s the UNESCO World Heritage Site San Augustín Church, the scenic Baywalk , and largest Chinatown in the world, and that’s just the ABCs. But one of the best known, and not to be missed sites is Intramuros—the remnants of the walled settlement founded by the Spanish in 1571. Spanish colonial-style buildings house an eclectic mix of ruins, churches, and some of Manila’s most interesting museums like the Bonsai Library and Museum, the Light and Sound Museum, and the Rizal Shrine Museum just to name a few.

The best way to travel between these sites is to take a ride in the unofficial symbol of the city, the Jeepney. Originally created by enterprising Filipinos out of surplus Jeeps left behind by the US Army, today these elaborately decorated and brightly colored taxi busses jam the streets and lend a certain attitude to the commute.

And if you need a break from the heat and chaos of this bustling metropolis, head to the air-conditioned sanctuary of one of Manila’s shopping malls. Considered one of the best shopping destinations in Asia, it’s the perfect place to grown your own shoe collection.
