Što ćete raditi
After our meet up and introductions, we will dive right into the history of the Philippines! We'll start at with the Oldest Stone Church in the whole archipelago and learn the backstories on how and why the Spanish even made it to this side of the world. We'll also learn what everlasting marks they left in the more than 300 years of their occupation. Next, we cross the street and enter an expertly recreated 19th century aristocrat's home and marvel at the furniture, furnishings and designs that came about with the combined influence of east and west. We then make our way towards a rarely visited part of the actual historic walls of Intramuros and try to glimpse at its wondrous past. Then we go to another museum that will give us further insight to the old city of Intramuros and its intertwined history with the catholic church. We continue on with walking through the old narrow streets and make a quick stop at a WW2 memorial where we learn about the Philippines and its role in this conflict. Another quick stop at the Cathedral that represents the seat of the Catholic Church in the Philippines Then we learn about the Filipino's fight for independence at the old military garrison. Join me on this adventure through the old city of Manila as we take routes less traveled and discover wonderful corners and side streets very few get to see.
My name is Jian and I am a local who's passionate about Philippine History, Food and Culture in general. I have had previous extensive experience in running tours and experiences in the Philippines for a large company and now have created a series of memorable experiential activities that's more warm and authentic. I want to change the mindset of "Skip Manila, go to the Beaches!" and show to travelers that Manila is a great way to get an introduction to Philippine Culture, Cuisine and History. This is my third activity on Airbnb.
