Staying true to its role as the capital of the Philippines, the city of Manila never fails to attract attention with its undying vivaciousness. It covers an area of close to 40 square kilometres, and accounting for its entire metropolitan region further pushes this figure to over 600 square kilometres. Its sheer vastness is saturated with dining options, distinct landmarks, shopping opportunities and a vibrant lifestyle—all of which live up to its nickname, ‘The Pearl of the Orient’.
