Malate District, Manila

(120+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood
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. Put Malate District and other Manila attractions into our Manila trip builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Malate during the day already not especially feels good, but especially at night, it is not recommended. You feel unsure, and confirm the many security.

  • Whatever city in many ways. Hotels from so no hotel. Shopping mall. Massage. In the evening's many various shops. Not a good neighborhood place. To play adult without complaining. But at your own risk thank you.
