Trips to Manila are filled with skyscrapers, gleaming malls and busy roads. It’s somewhere to really get to know on a deeper level due to its intricate past. Dig deeper and explore, starting by booking your flight to Manila through EVA Air.
Visit the National Museum of the Filipino People to learn about the country’s history and culture. There you can see the 17th century remains of a Spanish galleon. Stroll through Rizal Park and visit the statue of the Filipino hero Jose Rizal, for whom the park is named. Then, catch a live show of marine life displays at Manila Ocean Park. Enjoy an open-air cafe at Baywalk or play paintball and laser tag at Star City.
The two most efficient and cost-effective ways of getting around Manila are the bus and the Jeepney. Jeepneys are an authentic Philippine creation of a colourful minibus/Jeep hybrid that’s small enough to go anywhere, but also large enough to carry several passengers at a time.
New restaurents opened up every weeks on Maginhawa and Malingap Street, located in Teachers Village. It’s the ideal place to grab a bite and frequent a board game cafe. Kapitolyo is an accessible yet inventive area for food, while neighbouring Capitol Commons is a more upscale dining area.
