#9 of 10 in Neighborhoods in Luzon
Wander the streets of Malate District to see a wealth of modern architecture and visit the botanical gardens. Once a small fishing village, and today a tourist attraction, this district offers an array of entertainment options. Visit restaurants, bars, and discos for fun, then go shopping for clothes and souvenirs during the daylight hours. While other neighborhoods show old architecture, here you can see contemporary houses, as well as the impressive sports complex and football stadium. Beware of pickpockets, who are known to frequent the area, and don’t venture too far away from the main roads. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Manila trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • This is Manila's old downtown area. Location location is sandwiched between Manila Bay and the elevated train line from lethal Park. Once it was a red-light district is faltering a little but now says Robinson commercial complex and large shopping malls around increasingly crowded with locals. All shops, restaurants and cafes around the hotel. Also very convenient because the elevated train's jeepney also runs in the Roxas Street.

  • Check in was seamless. It's our 3rd time here. The manager, Ms. Karen Niegas was so nice that she gave us a very spacious with a great view room. We will definitely be back.  more »
