Here is how you will spend your time
Day 01 : Arrival Manila
Arrival in Manila and Private Transfer from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport to your hotel. Check-in and the rest of the day at leisure, you can opt shopping.
The Philippines is known for many things: beautiful beaches, overseas workers and the multitude of shoes owned by former first lady Imelda Marcos. But less known to the West is that the archipelago is a shoppers' dream, the home of three of the world's 10 largest malls.
Shopping, along with eating and basketball, is an important national pastime. Filipinos take their malling so seriously that it's practically their only destination every weekend. Many of the malls in the metro Manila area are mini-cities, with department stores, supermarkets, theaters, spas and even an Olympic-size skating rink. Christian and Muslim religious services also are held at the malls.
Overnight in the Hotel.

Across it is Casa Manila, a reproduction of a 19th century house equipped with oriental and European décor, as well as Philippine antique furniture.

From Fort Santiago, drive on to Manila’s central district, Quiapo, often referred to as the heart of Manila with its market, pilgrimage church of the Black Nazarene, jeepney terminals and bazaars.
