About Manila

Manila is the capital city of the Philippines. New and old are interwoven with each other in this city which integrates eastern and western culture. Because it was once ruled by Spain, this place has quite the southwestern European atmosphere. Manila has a forest of skyscrapers. Its many streets and churches hold a hundred years of history, as well as gardens, alleys and byways full of blooming flowers. Downtown Manila is an excellent place to appreciate the city’s Spanish style. The Manila Cathedral, or Minor Basilica and Metropolitan Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, San Augustin Church and the Casa Manila museum are all located in the city. You can take a horse-drawn carriage tour around to visit them. Manila Bay, especially the waterfront Roxas Boulevard, is a beautiful place from which to watch the sunset. You also visit some places in the suburban outskirts of Manila, such as Tagatai to hike up the volcano or Pagsanjan to take part in exciting activities like rafting.

Trip Moments

Singapore is a country I’ve always liked, not only because the city is very clean, organized and beautiful, not to mention, it is famously known as a “garden city”, but also because hard-working and brave Singaporeans created many global miracles on this little piece of land, making it a logistics and freight center for Asia and the world. Clarke Quay really sees this difference between the past and present. Back then it was just a little port offloading goods, now it has become an entertainment central, bustling with activity.
Surrounded by high rises, Clarke Quay is filled with 2 to 3 story high, South Asian style houses. You really see quite the visual contrast here. In these well decorated 2 and 3 story houses, you will find places offering shopping, wine and dine, and entertainment experiences. Not only are they popular among locals, American, European and Chinese tourists really enjoy these locales too.
Clarke Quay is a place where you can find excellent food all around Singapore. As we all know, Singapore is a very multicultural country where Chinese, Malays, Indians, Indonesians, Americans and Europeans all live. The multicultural community there has directly contributed to the diversity in Singapore’s gourmet landscape. At Clarke Quay, you can find many ethnic gourmet specialties.
It’s a completely different life from night to day. At night, not only are all bars at Clarke Quay completely filled, even roads at the front are filled with tables and people. A lot of them are primarily locals from Singapore, then Americans and Europeans. They would gather in groups to momentarily ignore the stress in their day to day work, have a drink, chit chat and have a good time.
