The Best Things to Do in Manila
Though Manila's rising dining scene could fill all of your time in the city, make sure you get out and about a bit. The busy city is home to history sites, gardens, and much more. If you just have one day to spend in Manila, head straight to the walled city of Intramuros. The oldest district of Manila, it's a good way to explore the history of the Philippines and find out why so many local dialects sound kind of Spanish. Don't miss the Rizal Shrine, a museum that honors the Filipino national hero, Jose Rizal.
