What to do in Manila, Philippines

Manila Bay

The city of Manila is one of the fourteen cities that make up the National Capital Region (Metro Manila). Manila is the capital of the Philippines. The typical things that most tourists do here are visit Intramuros, Luneta Park, Malacanang palace, China town, San Agustin Church, National Museum etc. If you are running out of ideas on what to do in Manila, you can check out these other places:

Manila Ocean Park
Inside Manila Ocean Park

This oceanarium in Manila is located behind the Quirino Grandstand Luneta. It is a walking distance from Manila Hotel and US embassy. It is one of the biggest marine parks in Asia. You can even go shopping here, enjoy the shows, and enjoy the food at Asian Food Village. This is one of the most fun places to go in Manila for kids.

Manila Bay Sunset Cruise

At the end of the day you might want to relax and have a glass of wine. Why not do it in style? Watch the sun go down while you are in the upper deck of a boat. Get to see Manila from a different setting and enjoy the city skyline by sunset. Sun Cruises is operating daily from 4:30pm till 8:00pm. You can book and pay online at http://www.corregidorphilippines.com/index.html.
