Manila, the Philippines’ capital city, is a real melting-pot of cultures with Filipino, Spanish, American and Chinese culture all adding their own spice to the mix. Made up of 16 smaller cities, Manila is as busy and crowded as you’d expect it to be with traffic jams, noise and pollution hitting the first-time visitor hard. But stick around and dig a little deeper and you’ll find an eclectic mix of music, fashion and cuisine as well as a relaxed and friendly attitude radiating from the locals. With a choice of hostels around Manila, you’ll always be well placed to enjoy the sights. Intramuros is the city’s oldest district and is surrounded by stone walls and fortifications. Inside you’ll find lavish churches, enlightening museums and opulent Spanish architecture. In Makati City, relax in the leafy oasis of Greenbelt Park before venturing into the malls and hanging around for the pulsating nightlife.
