About Manila

Manila, known as “The Pearl of The Orient”, is awash with Spanish colonial architecture and sophisticated skyscrapers. The city has survived centuries of natural and man-made disasters to become a city of juxtaposition and contrast, with skyscrapers, galleries and swanky malls jutting up against the poverty of the shanty towns. Centuries at the heart of global trade has led to a culturally diverse city, with inhabitants from Bengal, Spain, Portugal, Greece and Mexico, and an architectural style with Spanish, American and Chinese influences. English is widely spoken, making getting around much easier than in other Southeast Asian cities.
