Manila city guide

Brief History

The city of Manila, the capital of the Philippines, was founded in 1571 by Spanish explorers. As a result, it is the center of Christian culture throughout Asia. It was acquired, along with the rest of the archipelago, in 1898 following the Spanish-American War. After World War II, when the city sustained more damage than any foreign capital other than Warsaw, the Philippines became an independent nation with Manila as its capital. English, Spanish, and the local language, Tagalog, are all widely spoken here.


All commercial flights to Manila land at Ninoy Aquino International Airport, roughly 5 miles (8km) from the city center. Manila is the main air route into the Philippines, so any exploration of this large Pacific archipelago will begin with flights to Manila. Getting into town from the airport typically involves a ride in a cab, but for travelers with a little extra time or with a tight budget, there are also buses available at the terminal.

Transportation within Manila is reasonable, although the bus and train systems are certainly not up to Western standards. They run on a fairly reliable schedule, but if you are in a hurry, it might be a better idea to take a taxi. The public transit system in Manila combines 3 commuter train lines with an inner-city bus system.

Popular Attractions

  • Manila has a fascinating combination of Asian and Spanish influences, which are visible in its architecture. The best place to see historic buildings is the neighborhood of Intramuro (the old Spanish fort-city), where there are museums, churches, and Fort Santiago, a beautiful historic fortress.
  • There is a beautiful park, Rizal Park, which also displays the city’s mix of Asian and European cultures. It is located a short walk from Intramuro.
  • The one must-see in Manila is a sunset over the ocean. Manila is famous for its stunning evening skies, and there are many places to see them from. The Baywalk, near Manila bay, is a clear and spacious footpath with a broad view of the bay. Several restaurants are nearby.


The Philippine islands have a very unique and eclectic culinary culture unlike anything else in the world. It is widely available in Manila, as the city is not as accustomed to tourists as some other world capitals. One local favorite that is not too outlandish for most foreigners is silog, a fried egg served with fried rice. For those with a sweet tooth, there is Banana Cue, a fried carmalized banana that makes an ideal snack or desert.

Tips for Travelers

  • Unlike many of its neighbors, such as Indonesia, street food in the Philippines is not recommended for first-time visitors. While it is safe to eat, it can be very difficult on the stomach of a traveler who is not used to it.
  • Crime, especially pick-pocketing and petty theft, is on the rise in Manila. Use caution, keep an eye on your valuables, and try to walk in groups rather than alone.
