The walled city of Intramuros. There is alot of history within the walls of Intramuros. You can take guided tours, rent a bike or just walk around. Although there are places in Intramuros with slums, you can still feel the colonial vibe of the place....More

Did not travel the full length as I was not willing to subject a horse to the torture of dragging me around. Was disappointed that this was the main travel option. The horses did not look particularly healthy. What little I did see was interesting.

Intramuros is the Old Manila. The Walled City. It's best seen on a local horse carriage. You can rent a local horse to get around it. The coachman would be a good guide. Almost like a history teacher. Have fun! :-)

You can spend a few hours here walking around in the old city. Definitely need to stop at St. Augustine Church while you are here. Only thing that was stressful was trying to find a taxi to leave during rush hour.

My boyfriend stayed in Manila for 2 years before settling to Mindanao. He toured me around Manila, and this maybe the best place I've been so far. It's like we were time travelling back to the Spanish Era. Such an Incredible experience!

If you're in Manila and have a day to spend, Intramuros (latin "intra" = within, and "muros" = walls) founded by Miguel Lopez de Legazpi, 1571) is worth a visit. The "Walled City" (another name of Intramuros) is a big place with a couple of...More
