Binondo, Manila

2.9
Stroll through the streets of Binondo-- the world’s oldest Chinatown offering delicacies mixing Filipino and Chinese cuisine. Bars and restaurants decorate every corner but you can also find trinket shops selling various souvenirs. Architecture lovers will enjoy the many buildings in different styles, the most popular attraction being the Binondo Church. The structure stands out with its grey and red facade, making it hard to miss. A walk inside will provide an art-filled tour, with wall and ceiling decorations any other church can envy.

Where to stay in Manila

Manila has the full spectrum of hospitality options, from highly affordable hostels you can book on the spot to luxury four- and five-star resorts. Opt to stay in mid-range and upscale hotels clustered around the central business district, or score sea views at the resorts facing Manila Bay. If you choose to go for the budget-friendlier hostel, note that many have large dorm rooms with many bunk beds, catering primarily to job-seekers, while others are designed for young backpackers looking to make new friends.
