Enjoy the atmosphere of the Far East at Chinatown. Wind through narrow passageways and several archways of distinct Chinese stylization, decorated with red lanterns. You'll pass stalls selling fresh vegetables, clothing, jewelry, spices, and medicine, as well as various knock-off gifts and gadgets. The crowds, vibrant decorations, and traditional and modern-style temples create a hectic atmosphere typical of Chinese neighbourhoods around the world.

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.
