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 a visit to 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. In Intramuros, the Spaniards left some beautiful colonial houses and Fort Santiago, now a museum.

Also worth a visit in this district are Manila Cathedral, Metropolitan Theatre, and the National Art Gallery. South of Intramuros is Ermita, which also has must-see sights—Rizal Park, the Manila Ocean Park, and the 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

Watch sunset at Vieux Chalet

Manila is famous for having one of the best sunsets in the world, and there's no better place to see it than at Vieux Chalet. It’s a homely, family-run restaurant that serves European cuisine, the highlight of which is the cheese fondue.

Tour Intramuros

A tour of Intramuros—"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.

Take a jeepney tour

A jeepney is what public transport looks like in Manila: old US military jeeps painted all the colors 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 covers many bases.

Where to eat in Manila

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 3 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 favorite 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 house-made cheeses are not to be missed.

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 flush you can reserve your own VIP room.

Places to stay in Manila

New Miramar Hotel

The Miramar is one of the most beautiful budget hotels in Asia. This 40-room hidden gem, with its Art Deco atrium and hallways, offers all the facilities you'd expect. It's so colorful, quirky, and stylish, it almost feels like you’ve stepped into a scene in a Wes Anderson film.
