Manila, the capital of the Philippines, is a contrast between old traditions and modern facilities.  As you stroll along the streets of the walled city of Intramuros, the Manila Cathedral, and Fort Santiago, you'll definitely feel Spain's 400-year legacy in the city's architecture.

Take a walk through historial Rizal or Paco Park and catch an open air concert or better yet, hop on a calesa or horse driven carriage as you enjoy the sights.  Take a few snapshots of the treasures of Malacañang Palace or savour delicious authentic Chinese dishes in Chinatown.

Take a cruise and watch the famous romantic Manila Bay sunset or board a ferry to Corregidor Island - once an American outpost during World War II, now a lush vacation resort welcoming visitors from the world over.

Discover the many faces of Manila.  It's truly a celebration of life.
