Itinerary

The tour commences with a visit to Rizal Park for a brief picture stop before proceeding to the Walled City of Intramuros to visit the remnants of Spain’s conquistadores. Visit Fort Santiago, an old Spanish fortress where great moments in Philippine history occurred, San Agustin Church, which has a museum that exhibits a wide collection of religious relics, and Casa Manila, a reproduction of 19th century that is house equipped with oriental and European décor, as well as Philippine antique furniture.

Then board a horse drawn carriage called ‘calesa’ and trot off to Chinatown in Binondo, crossing the Pasig River, and onto an alley that leads you to Binondo Church another historical landmark built by the Spaniards in 1596. From here, walk towards Ongpin, the main street where a leisurely walk brings you to numerous jewelry shops, Chinese medicinal shops, grocery stores and restaurants.

At the end of Ongpin, stop briefly at Sta. Cruz Church, built in 1608 by the Jesuit priests, and then walk towards Escolta, was once used as a convoy route by the British Navy from 1762 to 1764, and the shopping center of the elite during the Spanish and American regimes. Today, what is left of what was once known as the “Queen of Streets’ are a few notable pre-World War II buildings, some of which are of neo-Classical and art deco architecture. Spend some time exploring the area before returning to your hotel.
