Guide Summary

Oh, Manila! Where do I even begin? This metro capital consists of 16 different cities and has so much to offer. It’s a city that barely sleeps! Experience jeepney rides, walking in a 400 year-old walled city built by the Spanish, bargain-hunting in street markets, exploring Chinatown, eating the infamous Balut (fertilised duck egg) street-side or in one of Asia’s 50 best restaurants. You’ll surely never run out of things to do.
