Manila Intramuros and MOA city tour
Alternate tour using public transport
Experience to ride through the capital using only public transportation.
We will visit the famous Intramuros. Intramuros is the oldest district and historic core of the city of Manila. Also called the Walled City, the original city of Manila was the seat of government when the Philippines were a component realm of the Spanish Empire. Districts beyond the walls were referred as the extramuros of Manila, meaning “outside the walls”.
Construction of the defensive walls was started by Spanish colonial government in the late 16th century to protect the city from foreign invasions. The 0.67-square-kilometre (0.26 sq mi) walled city was originally located along the shores of the Manila Bay, south of the entrance to Pasig River. Guarding the old city is Fort Santiago, its citadel located at the mouth of the river. Land reclamations during the early 20th-century subsequently obscured the walls and fort from the bay.
Intramuros was heavily damaged during the battle to recapture the city from the Japanese Imperial Army during the Second World War. Reconstruction of the walls was started in 1951 when Intramuros was declared a National Historical Monument, which is continued to this day by the Intramuros Administration.
The Global Heritage Fund identified Intramuros as one of the 12 worldwide sites “on the verge” of irreparable loss and destruction on its 2010 report titled Saving Our Vanishing Heritage, citing its insufficient management and development pressures.
After the visit to the Intramurs and Fort Santiago, you can choose to go to Mall Of asia and the Sea Side market for your lunch, or you can choose to go to the nearby market place called Divisoria. At this market there is a chance to experience the biggest retail market in Philippines. From where you can by everything from clothes, animals to food and souvenirs.
