By: - 06/24/2019

 

There is so much to see and to do in Manila. You will be surprised to know how aplenty they are – many histories and modern tales are woven along its streets.
At dahil nga Araw ng Maynila ngayon, we challenge you to visit old and new places gaya ng mga lugar na pinuntahan namin that brought us so much fun.

1
Chinatown Museum

4th Floor, Lucky Chinatown, Bldg. A,
Binondo, Manila.

This newly opened museum in the oldest Chinatown in the world was the newest item in every museum fans’ list. Depicting the history of Binondo, kilalanin pa ang sentro ng Chinese culture sa Maynila (lalo ngayon na mainit-init ang PH-China issue over West Philippine Sea). Entrance fee is P150 per person while P100 for student.

2

The Great Buddha Cafe

2F UBE Tower, 628 Ongpin St.,
Binondo, Manila

Drop by the heart of Binondo para sa food trip dahil bukod sa mga long standing Chinese restaurants, meron ding mga bago na dapat mong subukan gaya na lang ng recommended naming Hong Kong- style noodles at The Great Buddha Cafe, perfect for sharing.

3
Bambike Ecotours

Plaza San Luis Complex, Real st. cor
General Luna St. Intramuros, Manila

Imagine this: Taking the streets of Intramuros in bamboo bikes, as the setting sun paints the sky orange. And you are doing while learning more about the history of the walled city. Ganyan ang offer ng Bambike Ecotours na may mga tour packages perfect for a fun group activity or just a romantic bike ride with your dyowa.

4
The Wall:
Intramuros Night Market

633 General Luna St, Intramuros, Manila.

The party is getting started at the walled city’s very own food park! Kung masasaktuhan mo may local indie bands ang tumutugtog dito tuwing Friday night. Enjoy a meal, grab a drink at mag-enjoy lang sa selebrasyon ng Manila Day.

5
The National Museum
of Natural History

Teodoro F. Valencia Circle, Ermita, Manila

Learn more about creatures
that inhabited the Philippines. Dedicated kay Jose Rizal, who was known to be a “naturalist”, visitors will be greeted by the large sculpture of the double helix inspired work entitled “Tree of Life”. Dito mo rin makikita ang skeleton ni Lolong, one of the largest crocodiles ever caught.

6
Angrydobo

2456 Taft Avenue, Malate, Manila

Hindi dahil pagmamay-ari nila Judy Ann Santos at Ryan Agoncillo ang Angrydobo kaya ito matao (although isang factor na rin yun) pero dahil maganda ang location (near De La Salle, ang alma mater ni Ryan) pero dahil na rin masarap ang kanilang mga adobo inspired menu.

7

Silahis Center

744 General Luna, Intramuros, Manila

Part souvenir shop, part bookstore, part art gallery, Silahis Center is the perfect place para kilalanin pa lalo ang ating Pinoy heritage. Tatlong floor ang covered ng Silahis. The first floor houses souvenir items from
different regions of the country habang ang second floor naman ay library and book shop at ang ikatlong palapag ay ang art gallery.
