Manileño For A Day
This is Manila. It’s a city filled with history from different influences: Spanish, Chinese, and of course, Filipino. Experience Manila like a local and explore the inner streets to get a first-hand glimpse of the everyday life of Filipinos.
The Manileño Tour will take you around Manila in the best way we know how: via commute. A visit to Manila is not complete without riding a jeepney and a kalesa (Filipino horse carriage).
Tour around the Spanish walls of Intramuros, busy markets of Divisoria, cultural streets of Chinatown, and momentous grounds of Rizal Park.

Stop At: Fort Santiago, Intramuros, Manila, Luzon 1002 Philippines
One of Intramuros's main tourist attractions, Fort Santiago and its beautifully landscaped grounds on the bank of the Pasig River make for a wonderful escape from the bustle of the big city. Originally built by the Spanish in 1590, the citadel today includes gardens, plazas, fountains and a lily pond. The Rizal Shrine museum features displays of memorabilia relating to national hero Dr. José Rizal, executed by the Spanish in 1896 for being one of the leaders of the Philippine Revolution. The fort includes a re-creation of his cell and the courtroom where his trial was held.
Duration: 45 minutes
Stop At: San Agustin Church, Gen Luna & Real Sts Intramuros, Manila, Luzon 1002 Philippines
The San Agustin church was rebuilt three times due to man-made and natural disasters. Since then, it has withstood natural disasters and has become the oldest church in the Philippines. It is now recognized by the government and UNESCO as a historical landmark.
Duration: 15 minutes
Stop At: Manila Cathedral, Cabildo cor Beaterio Intramuros, Manila, Luzon 1002 Philippines
The Manila Cathedral-Basilica is the Premier Basilica of the Philippines because among the Churches in the Philippines it is the only one elevated to the rank of a Basilica by the Pope’s own initiative (motu proprio). All other Churches in the Philippines became a Basilica due to the initiative of the local Church where it is located. His Holiness, Pope John Paul II, now a canonized Saint, raised the Manila Cathedral to the dignity of a Basilica (motu proprio) on April 27, 1981, two months after his first visit to the Philippines in February 1981. As the Premier Church, Premier Cathedral and Premier Basilica, the Manila Cathedral-Basilica is the Mother of all Churches, Cathedrals and Basilicas in the Philippines.
