Flights to Manila

The best way to tackle the Philippines’ capital is to immerse yourself in it. Malay, Chinese, Spanish, Arabic, American – all these influences and more are found in everything from Manila's food scene to its architecture.

As well as having some of the best restaurants and street food in Asia – beef ramen is almost an obsession – the city offers some great sightseeing opportunities. Combine these with visiting the world's oldest Chinatown, in the Binondo district – the food, specifically the Hong Kong fare sold by the hawkers, is unbelievable.

There are 16 districts in what's called Metro Manila. The City of Manila – the western part of Metro Manila – is in turn made up of eight districts. To see the best sights, spend most of your time in Intramuros. The name – intra and muros – means ‘within the walls’ in Spanish. The Spaniards left in Intramuros some beautiful colonial houses and Fort Santiago, now a museum.

Also worth a visit in this district are Manila Cathedral, Metropolitan Theatre and National Art Gallery. South of Intramuros is Ermita, which also has must-see sights – Rizal Park, the Manila Ocean Park, and Museum of the Filipino People – and is a good place for bistros, restaurants and nightlife venues.

Manila is built around its energetic nightlife, creative community, and one of Asia’s coolest indie music scenes. They all come together in the city's modern galleries and live music venues. But before you hit the town, take a jeepney – old US military jeeps used as public transport – to the Port Area to see the sunset at Manila Bay.

What to do in Manila

Shop at Salcedo Market

Manila has some of the most exciting markets in Asia. Salcedo Market runs every Saturday; its fresh produce is unbeatable, and it also attracts the city's trendsetters. Go there on an empty stomach – from local fare to crepes and baklava, there's delicious food on every stand.

Visit the National Museum of the Philippines

It's all too easy to come away from a place without learning too much about its history and culture. The Museum of the Filipino People – part of the larger National Museum of the Philippines – offers a fascinating insight into the lives of the locals through the ages. It’s worth the trip for the incredible architecture alone.
