Manila Holidays

Bursting with life, Manila is the capital of the Philippines and is an invigorating blend of some of the country's oldest and richest heritage, and the most modern metropolitan features on the landscape.

For more than 300 years, Manila served as the centre of the Spanish military might in the region, however once the country was ceded to the United States, it transformed into a cosmopolitan city and today is surrounded my modern sky-scrapers and consists of no less than 17 sub-cities with over 12 million inhabitants.

Visit China Town, the oldest of its kind in the world, and step back in time with a trip to Intramuros; the walled city.
