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

Tour Intramuros

A tour of Intramuros – the ‘walled city’ – is a must for anyone visiting Manila. For the best alternative guide, take a tour with the very knowledgeable, very funny, very theatrical Carlos Celdran. If he can't get you excited about the city's history, no one can.

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.

Take a jeepney tour

A jeepney is what public transport looks like in Manila – old US military jeeps painted all the colours of the rainbow. They each have their own names – Delilah, Rosa – and they're basically the boss on Manila's busy roads. Jeepney Tours' shopping and spa tour ticks many a box.

Where to eat in Manila

Peking Garden (Chinese)

Very popular with Manila's foodies in the know, Peking Garden is a fine-dining Chinese restaurant that serves the best Peking duck in town. The lunch menu is also good value, but if you're feeling flash you can reserve your own VIP room.

Vask Modern Tapas & Gastronomic Cuisine (Spanish/Asian fusion)

Prior to the launch of Vask, Chef J Luis Gonzales earned his stripes in the kitchens of three of the 10 best restaurants in the world. He brings all that experience to the table, mixing Spanish cooking with Asian ingredients. The highlight is a 14-course taster menu.

Green Pastures (International)

Combining two of Manila's favourite pastimes – shopping and eating – Chef Robby Goco proves it is possible to find great food in shopping malls. Green Pastures serves organic, farm-to-table food, from exotic pasta dishes to amazing tuna burgers. The homemade cheeses are not to be missed.

Orchid Garden Suites

As you might be able to guess from the name, Orchid Garden Suites sits in its own tropical gardens. It's a little oasis off the busy streets, and because of this some locals describe it as a ‘secret hotel’. The renovated pre-war mansion is small, subtle and very stylish.
