Colonial Era Manila
Feb 2020
There unfortunately isn't too much left of the Spanish colonial era in Manila as a result of the ravages of time and in particular the destruction caused during the second world war. But it's still an interesting area to walk around and explore. Fort Santiago remains the main highlight of this district.

Seat of colonial Spainish rule
Feb 2020 • Solo
Once the seat of the colonial spanish rule, the "walled City" or intramuros offers a touch of an historical setting in a modern city. The architectural designs are amazing. One can see a lot of statues of the spanish Kings and queens. The Manila cathedral and the Fort Santiago are attractions in the Intramuros. Travel could be through the Intramuros battery operated vehicles. This is a must-visit site, if you are in Manila city.

Historic Old Manila
Feb 2020
Had a wonderful touring this mini Old Manila town. The quaintness is nicely preserved, with a couple of interesting museums inside. Great to be reminded of what Manila was once was and the impacts of the war on the city. Also the fort is within walking distance to the beautiful churches there---the Manila Cathedral and the San Augustine churches. Beautiful!

Site Seeing Intramural Metro Manila
Mar 2020 • Couples
March 12th,2020 was a planned trip to Intramural. The trip was prepared well by the hire car owner. The tour guide was awesome giving every little details of the amazing history of the Intramural. We were taken into the dungeon, the mini museum. Later in the day a horse ride around the Intramural City. A trip worth taken. We recommend any visitors to put Intramural in their site seeing list whenever visiting Manila.
