Walled city and UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site of San Augustin Church
The oldest part and historic centre of Manila is the “Walled City” known as Intramuros, which is home to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site of San Augustin Church. The 16th-century Catholic church is considered a national treasure in the Philippines, fusing Chinese and Spanish design. Buried inside are famous figures from Philippine history and culture.
The fascinating underwater world at Manila Ocean Park
The Manila Ocean Park aquatic complex was opened in 2008 as place for everything when it comes to animals and water. There are interactive zones and – its main attraction – the Oceanarium, with 14,000 marine animals. Be sure not to miss the Trails to Antarctica. With its penguins, it is one of the park’s most popular attractions.
Shopping at the Mall of Asia (MOA)
No trip to Asia is complete without “shopping until you drop”. The Mall of Asia is one of the largest shopping Meccas, not only in the Philippines, but across Asia and the world. Over five levels, it boasts shops offering a vast selection of fashion, technology, furniture, accessories and much more. In addition to the shopping experience, it also regularly hosts concerts and fireworks, not to mention its state-of-the-art IMAX cinema and the Philippines’ first Olympic-size ice-skating rink. A ride in one of the specially air-conditioned gondolas on the 55-m-high “Mall of Asia Eye” is an absolute must.
