Sit back and take in the panoramic views of the old walled city of Intramuros, which was constructed during the Spanish colonial period. Within these walls lies the imposing Fort Santiago. Built in 1571, it also served as military headquarters for the Spanish, American, and Japanese colonisers.

You’ll make a photo stop at the beautiful neo-Romanesque Manila Cathedral before passing Casa Manila, an authentic replica of a Spanish colonial mansion. You’ll also see San Agustin Church, the oldest surviving church in the Philippines. It was built in 1571 and is a UNESCO Site today.  

As your panoramic drive continues, you’ll have a chance to see the Coconut Palace, Cultural Centre of the Philippines, Philippine Convention Centre, Makati Financial District, the American Cemetery, and much more. 

You’ll make another photo stop at Rizal Park, then head to the Manila Hotel in the heart of the city, for tea or coffee accompanied by sandwiches and cakes.
