Manila: A Love/Hate Relationship with a Contradiction, Part II — Old Manila

These were taken at the following locations:
Luneta Park
Fort Santiago
Intramuros

All three are within walking distance from each other. But then, there are also several walking tours that you can take, for your convenience and education. Here are a couple of the more popular ones:

Old Manila Walks
Takes you through the old, walled city of Intramuros; Binondo (Chinatown); the MalacaΓ±ang Palace; the Chinese Cemetary; and Corregidor Island.

Walk This Way, by Celdran Tours
Imagine having a clown for a tour guide. And I don’t mean that in a derogatory sense; Carlos Celdran is a theater actor-cum-Manila tour guide. His signature brand of tour guiding — the entire thing is a performance — makes it easy to pay attention, actually retain something, and form an opinion. If you’re walking in the Manila heat, you’re going to want to at least be entertained! And that is exactly what he’ll give you.
