Tourist spots in Manila
I have visited Intramuros and Binondo several times but I am still wondering if what am I missing in and outside this huge district in Manila. Inspired by the question: “Hanggang saan aabot ang isan daang piso mo?” Our journey today explains that budget is not a problem to see the gorgeous artefacts erected centuries ago. Without formal itinerary, we walked on the streets of Manila with our first stop at Quiapo Church.
