Manila Sightseeing Tours
Manila sightseeing tours are a popular way to make the most of this fascinating city during a brief stop. Try and research a particular area you’d like to see, then look at tours operating in that area. A particularly popular tour area is the historic part of the city, but there’s always the newer part of Manila in Bonifacio Global City just waiting to be discovered, too. If you decide to join a tour of the old area, you’ll see such highlights as the San Agustin Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site built in 1720, and Fort Santiago, a defense fortress that dates back to 1590.

Manila Shore Excursions
There are many fascinating sites just a short drive away from Manila, so it’s well worth looking to see what is available for a short excursion. When you want to escape the concrete jungle, jump on a Manila shore excursion to Corregidor, a fortress that has played a big role in military conflicts of the past, including major WWII battles between the USA and Japan. Also just one hour away from Manila is Tagaytay, one of the country’s most picturesque cities.
