    Manila is a city with diverse facets that may seem overwhelming at first. However, we are dedicated to highlighting its best features and ensuring you have a memorable and enjoyable experience.

    We'll begin our journey from your hotel, heading north to explore the Chinese cemetery, known for its impressive size and unique architecture. Next, we'll visit Quiapo Church, a Catholic home to the revered Black Nazarene. During this stop, you'll gain insights into Philippine Christianity, its key symbols, and contemporary local customs.


    From here, we'll go on a unique walking tour through the vibrant market stalls of the district, where you'll interact with Muslim traders. After a brief stroll, we'll hop on a local tricycle for a ride to Binondo, the world's oldest Chinatown. Discover the secrets behind its historic distinction and explore the bustling streets while tasting local delicacies, learn about the area's unique history, and experience the vibrant atmosphere of Chinatown.


    Next, we'll hop aboard a jeepney to reach Intramuros, Manila's historic district, enclosed by ancient walls. The name 'Intramuros' is Spanish, with 'intra' meaning 'inside' and 'muros' meaning 'walls.' During the Spanish colonization era, this area served as the city's heart, where Spanish galleons loaded goods for over two centuries, connecting the Philippines and Mexico. In Intramuros, you'll delve into the rich history of the Philippines, exploring the factors behind colonization and discovering what happened in the city during World War II.' As a delightful treat, we'll visit one of the city's oldest rum distilleries for a tasting session. For lunch, we'll enjoy a colonial-style restaurant, savoring Filipino cuisine infused with a Filipino Mexican fusion twist.

    After a delightful lunch, our journey continues as we hop on a bus to reach the vibrant Bonifacio Global City. Here, we'll pay our respects at the American Cemetery, a solemn tribute to the brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives during World War II. We'll also explore the Museum of the Battle for Manila, where you'll gain deeper insights into the historic events that shaped this city.


    Returning to Makati, we arrive at one of Metro Manila's safest, most modern, and upscale districts. Here, you'll find an impressive skyline adorned with 60-70-story skyscrapers, housing banks, embassies, and the well-known entertainment area of Poblacion, featuring numerous bars. To cap off our day, we'll ascend to one of the city's stunning rooftop bars, where you can savor a drink or enjoy the finest Filipino beer while taking in the breathtaking sunset views over the city. Finally, we'll make our way back to the hotel, allowing you to unwind and rest after an exciting day of exploration.
