Smoky Mountain (Just see from inside the car)
Smoky Mountain was the first garbage dump in Manila. The dump was in operation for 40 years, starting in 1954. Since it was featured in many movies and magazines and was regarded as a "symbol of poverty in the Philippines," the Philippine government suspended the operation of the dump site to avoid tarnishing its image, and it was subsequently closed. Currently, a new dump site is in operation in Payatas, Quezon City.
Happy Land (Just see from inside the car)
Happyland is a small community located near the Smoky Mountains, and half of the community is still full of garbage. It is also said that half of the people living in Happyland are scavengers, people who collect recyclable items from the garbage in the Smoky Mountains. And now Happyland is in much the same condition as Smoky Mountain because of the piles of garbage collected.
Walk around Divisoria Market
Divisoria Market is the most famous and cheapest market in Metro Manila for low-priced goods. You can even negotiate the price of goods for sold here. Open 24 hours a day, this market also has a night market.
Binondo Church (Cathedral of San Lorenzo Luis)
The church is located at the entrance to Chinatown and was built by Filipinos and Catholic Chinese. St. Lorenzo Luis was executed by the Tokugawa Shogunate in Japan in the 17th century.
Chinatown in Manila is the oldest Chinatown in the world. It was declared a Chinese Catholic settlement in 1592 during the Spanish colonial period. Today, it serves as the central marketplace for both Chinese and Filipinos.
Quiapo Church (Minor Basilica of the Black Nazareen)
Built in 1582, this church is one of the oldest churches in the Philippines. It is believed that the main reason for this is that Blacknazarene has caused countless miracles, such as healing injuries and illnesses with the touch. Every January 9th, the Feast of Black Nazarene is celebrated, with millions of people attending the festival to get in touch with the statue of Black Nazarene. Therefore, it is one of the biggest festivals in the Philippines where injuries are constant every year.
It is called the Golden Mosque because of its bright golden exterior. The mosque was built for the visit of Libyan Supreme Leader Mu'ammar al-Kazzafi on August 4, 1976, but unfortunately his visit was cancelled and the mosque is now the center of Manila's Muslim community.
Malakanian Palace (Facade only)
It was originally built in 1750 by Don Luis Rocha, a Spanish nobleman on a trading galleon, as a summer residence. Later, in 1825, it was purchased by the state as a summer residence for the Spanish governor. In 1898, after the Spanish-American War, it was occupied by the U.S. Governor, and in 1935, with the inauguration of the Commonwealth Government of the Philippines, it became the official residence of the President of the Philippines and has been the residence and office of the Philippine President ever since.
Lunch (Filipino Cuisine)
While retaining the atmosphere of Southeast Asia, the luxurious interior of the restaurant is famous and popular locally.
Departure from restaurant
It is a museum that imitates the upper class mansion of the Spaniards during the Spanish rule. The Spanish architecture gives it a time-slip feel to the 18th century. You can see the lifestyle at that time.
San Agustin Church
It is a church built about 400 years ago, which is also registered as a World Heritage Site. The fine details of the interior, baroque interiors, chandeliers and murals make you forget you are in Asia. Stop by the adjacent museum.
Originally built to prevent pirates, it was built into a wall during the Spanish rule and was once occupied by the American and Japanese troops. Filipino hero José Rizal was imprisoned in the dungeon before execution. The José Rizal Memorial Museum is on site.
This park is located at the northern end of Lohas Boulevard overlooking Manila Bay. It is the place where the Philippine national hero "Jose Rizal" was executed during the Spanish rule, and the name comes from it. There is a monument protected by guards 24 hours a day, and it is a place of relaxation for Manila citizens.
