We will go to three exciting places in Manila and explore each spot. First, we would meet in Escolta where we would explore this historic and majestic neighborhood. As we walk around and look at historic beautiful buildings, I would explain to you the architecture and history of the buildings. We would also explore hidden spots in the area. From there, we would walk to Binondo "Chinatown" and have a food trip. We would go to two hidden spots where we would have good Filipino-Chinese food. Then, I would bring you to a local store where we can see/buy Chinese delicacies. From there, we would take a tricycle(local style) going to Intramuros. This walled city is the most historic area in the metro! It was the center of Spanish political, religious, and military power in the region. As we walk around Intramuros, we would talk about the history, facts and effects of the Spanish colonization. In here, we would see and visit sights such as Manila cathedral, Casa Manila and San Agustin church and many more. As an architect, I look at buildings differently and I would love share everything I know in terms of Architecture and history of every sights that we would go to.
