Manila, on the island of Luzon, offers a city of diverse contrasts, with East meeting West in a vibrant metropolis. One of the oldest cities in East Asia, Manila features major attractions that are in close proximity to the Pan Pacific Manila hotel. Steeped in history, Manila is a modern city that astounds visitors with its unique offerings.
Start with a walking tour of Intramuros, the historic walled city built in the early 16th century. Be sure to see Manila Cathedral, Fort Santiago and San Agustin Church, located within the city. Situated near the hotel, Casa Manila recreates the elegance of a 19th-century home. Additional attractions that tap into Manila's heritage include the Cultural Centre of the Philippines and the Metropolitan Museum of the Philippines. At the end of a day touring Manila, enjoy a spectacular sunset over Manila Bay.
Several thrilling day trips from the hotel feature vistas of natural wonder. Hike up the active volcanoes of Mount Pinatubo or Taal Volcano for unforgettable views of picturesque beauty, or ride the Pagsanjan River to see immense, cascading waterfalls.
For one-stop shopping of Asian goods, look no further than the six bustling floors of the SM Mega Mall in Metro Manila, located right next door to the Asian Development Bank.
Manila also offers an exciting nightlife that centres around the districts of Malate and Ermita, with their wide array of bars, casinos and clubs.

Filipinos value treating elders with the respect and deference. There are many ways a person can show respect, whether it is by using hand gestures or speaking.
It is also customary for Filipinos to use a lot of hand and facial gestures to communicate. In their communication with each other, speaking politely is important as is speaking with a gentle tone of voice. Arguing is not acceptable, along with public criticism.
