When you think of the Philippines, it’s often associated with white sand beaches and eating bird fetuses. And though those are the right things to think about, there is definitely more to the Pearl of the Orient Sea

And where better to experience this, than in Metro Manila! Because this city or area remains to be the top destination for people who want to experience more than suntans on the beach and riding in jeeps. Here, the fun never stops, so make sure you’re the type to go at it all night. 

So to make sure your future stay in the city will be amazing, here are three must-do’s in Metro Manila. 

Visit Intramuros. 

Intramuros is a special section in the city of Manila, that was preserved all the way back to the early 19th century. So imagine forts and brick laid streets. But with some modernity here and there. 

The city was preserved in order to remind the Filipinos of their history and to never forget the hardships that made them the way they were today. So it’s a place where you can learn more about the country’s history and enjoy going back in time as well. 

It’s a little bit hot in Intramuros on most days, so make sure to wear something like, and easy to breathe in. So that you can enjoy this cultural heritage site at its best. 

Enjoy the Nightlife. 

If you’re looking for the best place to experience the wild nightlife that the Philippines has to offer, then you’ve come to the right spot! Because in Metro Manila, the fun never sleeps, and you can party till you drop! 

With special party areas like Poblacion and BGC, you’ll find a bar or club around every street corner. And you’ll also find some of the wildest and party-driven people in the country! It’s where you absolutely cannot just pass by without a single shot. So make sure you can handle your alcohol! 

But even if drinks aren’t your forte, you can definitely find a nice and boujee restaurant to dine in here! 

Explore National Museums. 

Manila houses some of the biggest and most detailed National Museums in the country. This is because they have a museum for pretty much everything here. 

From the National Museum of Anthropology to the National Museum of Fine Arts. There are about 4 or 5 museums that can be found right next to each other. So you won’t ever have to go too far. 

And whichever museum you decide to visit, you are sure to find some of the most brilliant forms of art or history in the entire country of the Philippines. 


Metro Manila is many things. It’s loud, has tons of people, and can be pretty suffocating at times. But what it isn’t, is not fun and enjoyable. It is the place in the Philippines where you will be able to experience what the country is really like. And that is an experience worth having because everything is more fun in the Philippines!
