_FB***60we need not travel far frommanila have an adventure. Located in the heart of Old Manila, Intramuros Manila (“within the walls” when translated literally from Spanish) is one of the Philippines’ biggest cultural and historical landmarks.The Walled City and its famous citadel Fort Santiago were the seat of government during the Spanish colonial period. Now, it is still very much a living, breathing city with universities, government offices, banks, hotels, and restaurants—and it is well worth the visit. The best part is you can enjoy most parts of Intramuros Manila without breaking the bank!
Gloria DivaStill widely known as 'Luneta' (its name until the 1950s), Manila’s iconic central park is spread out over some 60 hectares of open lawns, ornamental gardens, ponds, paved walks and wooded areas, dotted with monuments to a whole pantheon of Filipino heroes. As the place where José Rizal was executed by the Spanish colonial authorities, it's also of great historical significance.

This beautiful historical church is located inside the famous city wall of Intramuros in Manila, the Philippines. It’s almost a half-century old building which now is used as a church and also a museum, making it also the oldest church in the whole Philippines. This place is also listed on the UNESCO world heritage site. I would recommend to book your tickets in advance as the place can be quite crowded during certain season. I was so lucky it was so empty at the time I visited! It’s pretty easy to access this place if you come from the city center, you can either take public transport like buses or metro, or just hire the Grab taxi which is very affordable too!

Every time there’s a long weekend, I usually spent it to travel but due to this pandemic travel was restricted all over the world so I decided to book a hotel for a staycation. Spent 4 days and 3 nights at Microtel by Wyndham, its a budget hotel located at the best shopping, leisure, business and entertainment complex in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines. I just stayed in my room enjoying the quality room service, outside view and to feel the new environment to relief the stress at home and workplace, making some checklists on how to deal with next week activities and of course, we need to treat ourselves too- relax, meditate and rejuvenate. The room includes free wifi, and free breakfast. #qingmingtravel #urbanexplorer
The Manila Cathedral-Basilica is the Premier Basilica of the Philippines because among the Churches in the Philippines it is the only one elevated to the rank of a Basilica by the Pope’s own initiative (motu proprio). All other Churches in the Philippines became a Basilica due to the initiative of the local Church where it is located. His Holiness, Pope John Paul II, now a canonized Saint, raised the Manila Cathedral to the dignity of a Basilica (motu proprio) on April 27, 1981, two months after his first visit to the Philippines in February 1981. As the Premier Church, Premier Cathedral and Premier Basilica, the Manila Cathedral-Basilica is the Mother of all Churches, Cathedrals and Basilicas in the Philippines.
