Visit Manila - Philippines with

The Philippians’ capital Manila has one of the most populated urban areas of the world with a round figure of 22 million residents! The tourists coming by flights to Manila raise the air traffic statistics to 30 million people a year, making the city Asia’s busiest airway service.

When it comes to tourist attractions, there’s a lot to choose from. But there are some things you just can’t miss. One such spot is the Walled City, better known as the Intramuros. This is the original Manila, from the 16th century. One can visit the Spanish quarter on horse-back or the bike tours, and get the real flavor of Philippines, from its ancient museum. The old houses and the original prison where Jose Rizal was jailed are still pretty much intact. This is a premium attraction to the tourists, with cheap flights to Manila’s oldest asset, except for the horse-back tours.

In Tagatay, experience the magnificent Taal volcano. The journey is a smooth ride from the main city, and you are taken to the spot by boat. Beautiful is the word to describe this attraction. Be awe-struck by the crater’s sparkling blue water. Cheap tickets around the spot, including transportation, meals and other inclusive offers to the tour packages make this little expedition worth it.

Another tribute to the history from the World War II period is the American Cemetery and Memorial. The Americans that served the country at the same time as the Pearl Harbor Attack were mostly buried here, and to walk amongst all the sacrifices gives a feeling of utmost respect. It is a great experience, especially for those take interest in world history. This is the best way to learn about the city’s history and how it became what it is today. Take a pleasant stroll down this memorial with your ice cream cone.

You may not get cheap flight tickets in case of late bookings, but attractions like these are free of cost, and will be easier on your pocket, along with a guaranteed way to enjoy your day.

Next is the Corregidor Island- a way to spend your day with some adventure and getting a grab of some knowledgeable facts of Philippines. The guides make the trip enjoyable with their thorough awareness of the island’s history. They narrate as if they were there! This historic site has the very dark tunnel along the tour, which may not be a good idea for children to step in to. Manila is probably known for its rich culture, for it pulls all the tourists magnetically to these magnificent sites. The food served at this island isn’t particularly worth boasting, but the tour balances it out.

So you’ve toured the city and discovered the most incredible places. And you’re tired. The last day, or perhaps some of the evenings should be allotted to the Holiday Spa. Relax at the center and pamper yourself after a long day. Good ambiance and professional staff make the visit promising.
