Whether you are a first time foreigner, a rediscoverer, a frequent lover or a local explorer, this will help you plan your visit to the Philippines.
Manila: Intramuros, the Walled City
Start your journey to the Philippines in the capital Manila, a city of diversity, the center of government and education of the country. But before Manila became the city that it is today, Manila was the walled city called Intramuros, the seat of government when the Philippines was still under the Spanish rule. The 64-hectare walled city sits on the south of the entrance of Pasig River, originally along the shores of Manila Bay but is now obscured by land reclamation. It was heavily damaged and almost completely destroyed during the fierce Battle of Manila between American, Filipino and Japanese forces, only the damaged Church of San Agustin remains standing. Reconstruction started in 1951 when it was declared a National Historical Monument.Stay:
White Knight Hotel Intramuros provides an idyllic stay in the walled city. Outside Intramuros, Manila Hotel and Luneta Hotel offer fancy accommodations. There are other hotels and backpacker hostels in Malate and Ermita districts outside Intramuros. But even if you are staying in other areas, Intramuros is good for a day tour.Do:
See the UNESCO World Heritage San Agustin Church and its museum, Manila Cathedral, Fort Santiago, Bahay Tsinoy, Casa Manila Museum, Plaza Roma, Ayuntamiento, Palacio del Gobernador, Maestranza Wall and the surviving old structures and ruins around. Visit the nearby National Museum, Manila City Hall, Plaza Lawton, Rizal Park, Manila Ocean Park and Roxas Boulevard. Indulge in a food trip in Chinatown and Binondo. Shop for bargain at Divisoria.

Another favorite is Bayleaf Hotel's 9 Spoon that offers great vantage point of the city. If you are into Chinese food, the nearby Chinatown offers really cheap and yet good dining spots.

Tagaytay City: Highland Charm
After spending a day in Manila, drive south to the highland city of Tagaytay in the Province of Cavite. Approximately two to three hours away from the capital, Tagaytay City is a favorite go to spot to escape from the chaotic and humid Manila because of its temperate weather and the panoramic view of Taal Lake and Volcano. It's a totally different world out there, an exact opposite of the hustle and bustle of the capital city on just a short drive!Stay:
While a trip to Tagaytay can be done on a day if you are based in Manila, there are numerous accommodations in the city if you prefer to spend a night there.

When you are done with Tagaytay and Taal Volcano, drive north to Central Luzon for a trek to another volcano - Mt. Pinatubo. The emerald-colored crater lake surrounded by beautiful sand wall is one of the few fascinating scenery created by its tragic eruption of 1991. The trek to crater lake can be done on a day trip from Manila. The journey to the crater involves a 4x4 ride along lahar desert and gorges, river crossing, and a trek on a rocky trail. The trail is not technical so everyone with reasonable amount of fitness can make it up there.Stay:
