  • Malate is a neighborhood authentically Filipino, located between the historic downtown area and the wealthy residential district of Makati. In Malate is there really a little of everything and to deepen the knowledge you should turn it on foot though the wide boulevards that cross in some places do not induce to stroll. The best part is that most Western, the closest to the sea. Boardwalk one can admire the famous sunsets of Manila. On the waterfront there are some notable attractions like the Metropolitan Museum and the Catholic Church of Malate. It is also an area of interesting restaurants, Chief among them an unmissable Aristocrat. Moving to the East, the neighborhood becomes less nice, but with some narrow streets full of little houses with one or two floors; There are grocery shops and artisans. As it proceeds eastward degradation increases and at some point instinct suggests you stop visiting the neighborhood.
