Tour Manila’s past and present including old city, historic Intramuros and the bustling financial capital of Makati on this comprehensive guided exploration through time. Prepare to explore Metro Manila which starts with a visit to the American Cemetery and Memorial, followed by a drive through time as you revisit Philippine history to sightsee the heart of the country’s financial center, Makati City.
Landmarks include Nielson’s Tower along Ayala Boulevard, the country’s first airport built in 1937, currently converted into an upscale restaurant, Forbes Park Village, an exclusive residential enclave fittingly dubbed as “Millionaire’s Row” and the American Cemetery and Memorial. The cemetery site or the resting place of soldiers who lost their lives during the WWII, covers 152 acres. This contains the largest number of graves of any cemetery for U.S. personnel killed during World War II, a total of 17,191 and 36,286 missing in action who are recorded upon the walls of the memorial.
Continue onward via the scenic Roxas Boulevard, one of the best locations to see the beautiful Manila Bay sunset before heading to the last leg of the tour which takes you to Intramuros, known as the “Walled City” inside which lie relics of the Spanish Conquistadors era! End at Fort Santiago, one of the oldest Hispanic stone fortresses in the Philippines. This is where Dr. Jose Rizal spent his last days in incarceration and wrote his famous “Mi Último Adiós” (My Last Farewell).
