Intramuros has a very interesting history spanning over 500 years. The horse drawn carriage tours are quaint, but they’ve been known to charge exorbitant prices, or pull a “bait and switch”. So buyer beware. And you don’t really need them. Intramuros is very walkable. Do...More

It was interesting walking around this area and there is obviously a lot of history here. Pity I was in a hurry! Loved all the old buildings and the walk along the wall

If in Manila you really want to walk through intramuros quarter to see Spaniards neocolonial influence. Fort Santiago, Casa Manila and St Augustine Church are highly recommended stops during your visit
