CRUISE TO MANILA, WHERE YOU CAN SPEND YOUR DAYS DELIGHTING IN MUSEUMS, CHURCHES, AND RUINS OF DAYS GONE BY.
Manila was the jewel of the Spanish empire in the Pacific and a colony of the US after the Spanish-American War. The Intramuros, the remnants of the walled settlement the Spanish founded in 1571, form an evocative mix of ruins and churches and contain the city’s most interesting museums. The famous Manila Hotel is a legacy of the American era, and was the residence of General MacArthur prior to World War II. Be sure to take a ride in the unofficial symbol of the city, the jeepney, originally created by enterprising Filipinos out of surplus jeeps the US left behind. Decorated in bright colours with shiny hood ornaments, the jeepney is public transportation with attitude!Download An Explorer Guide +
