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.
