“It is easy to find a hotel where rooms cost $50 or even less in Manila.”
A visit to the capital city of the Philippines is a trip filled with history and culture. Manila offers several museums full of Hispanic artifacts to showcase its background. Shoe lovers are sure to get a kick out the Marikina Shoe Museum, where the infamous Imelda Marcos's shoe collection resides. And after getting yourself some new shoe leather, see the city on foot—or take a bike tour. The Walk This Way tour is a walking tour and theater experience rolled all into one, with comedy and history thrown in. And you can choose one of Manila’s inexpensive hotels for a budget-friendly home base.
