In this feature, we have the recommended locations and culinary must-visits suggested by our Pioneer House Manila colleagues. Be sure to mark these spots in your travel and food calendars the next time you visit the glorious city of Manila:

Fort Santiago and Casa Manila in Intramuros - to get a feel of "Old Manila" and a bit of history.
For food trip - various restaurants in Binondo.
For Filipino food - Harbor View restaurant (near Quirino Grandstand), which offers a scenic view of Manila Bay.
-Jojo Nazal

Fort Santiago in Intramuros is a must for travelers! Visit one of the most important historical sites in Manila. The Philippines' national hero was imprisoned here prior to his execution as a martyr. There are two (2) museums within the park where one can reminisce not only the life of Dr. Jose Rizal but also the life of the early inhabitants of the city.
After a day in Intramuros, try the Manila Bay Dinner Cruise. Enjoy the traditional local cuisine as you catch the breathtaking view as the sun disappears behind the horizon
