가장 가까운 역으로는 LRT United Nation 역. 역 근처 rizal park를 시작으로 반나절 여행 코스를 시작하는게 좋으며 리잘공원 정문기준 왼쪽길로 쭈욱 걷다보면 (길을 두번 건넘) 인트라무로스 가 시작되는 게이트를 찾게됨. 스페인 식의 건물들과 거리, 마차 등은 시간이 멈춰 있는 듯 한 경험을 하게 해줌

After visiting the national museum, Intramuros is only a shot walk and will surely not disappoint you. Nice historic old town with churches, nice old neighborhoods, restaurants etc. Highly recommended for a visit.

Hi, Intramuros would be a fairly easy walk from the cruise ship docks. It might take about 30 minutes. The easiest route might be to walk to the main cathedral and fort area. They are on the edge of the Intramuros.
