Chinatown, Manila

(1.4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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. Recharge your batteries in one of numerous restaurants serving a wide range of Chinese food.
