The capital of the Philippines and the "Pearl of the Orient," Manila truly resembles a gem: rough on the outside, but glittering within.
Step out of the city life by going to Playa La Caleta and Daranak Falls. Discover out-of-the-way places like Cavinti (Pagsanjan) Falls and Mt Pico de Loro. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Manila: Caleruega (in Nasugbu) and Biak na Bato National Park (in San Miguel). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Villa Escudero, buy something for everyone on your list at Robinsons Place Mall, admire the striking features of San Agustin Church, and explore the activities along Manila Bay.

To find reviews, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, read Manila vacation trip planner.

If you are flying in from China, the closest major airports are Ninoy Aquino International Airport and Clark International Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 35°C, and evening lows to 27°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Fri) so you can go by car back home.
