The bustling metropolis of Manila, widely known as Metro Manila, is the center of business and finance, entertainment, culture, political and transportation in the Philippines. Manila is also the place where the journey to the Philippines begins for many travelers.

Some of the country’s historical tourist spots, dating back all the way from the Spanish era from more than 400 years ago, may also be found in the city. Intramuros, also known as the “Walled City,” is the oldest district and historic center of Manila. This was the original seat of the Spanish government during the time that the Philippines was under the Spanish rule. Few people know, that the oldest China town outside mainland China can be found in old Manila. The cultural heritage makes Manila a unique place to visit in Southeast Asia.
