Attractions in Manila, Philippines

Manila is the kind of city that changes depending on what you are looking for. It can be rough and raw for the adventure and story seekers in you. It can be sophisticated and poised if you ask for comfort and ease. It is multi-faced, so it has varied attractions that can fit your lifestyle and desires.

For history enthusiasts, it has some of the best museums and oldest churches in the country. For the shopaholics, you will be amazed with the number of malls in the metro. And an hour away from the city, there are secret coves, beaches, and islands waiting. For the foodies, you can find both the exotic and the gourmet in the city.

Perhaps that is the charm of megacities like Manila. Its beauty lies in its rough edges more than its sophisticated sides. It is the difficult, the raw, the odd that makes an impression. Manila is like that. It will shock you at first. Then you keep on thinking about it. Then you smile.
