A curious mixture of old and new, Manila is a city of several parts and the closest Philippines gets to a cosmopolitan city.
Manila is made up of 15 cities that were originally seperated but were conglomerated into the Metro Manila. Its multi-centre arrangement means that every area of the city has its own shopping centre, entertainment and diversions, so you’ll never be far away from some sort of activity.
On arrival, your senses will be bombarded by the usual sights and sounds of big city living with a heady mix of pollution and enormous throngs of people bustling around the busy shops and markets. But if you can manage to look beyond the dense population, there are many charming and rewarding nooks and crannies you’ll find worth exploring.
