Malate District, Manila

1.4
#7 of 8 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.

  • Here in the malate district is a city made effective use of land. Amusement parks of large tracts of land, anything larger is the streets are full of visitors. Restaurants are plentiful and bores. Can be moved around by the mood of the visitors and change the resting place is west facing Bay is fun.

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.
