Intramuros is the oldest district of Manila and is also known as the “The Walled City” due to the massive stone walls that completely surround the area. With this tour, you’ll get to know its rich history on a handmade bamboo bike made by local craftsmen.
The tour starts when you arrive at the Bambike HQ at the Plaza San Luis Complex. Come early so you will have time to choose your bamboo bike. Each bike is distinct with different designs, so feel free to state your preference. This tour also provides other modes of transportation for individuals who are not comfortable using a bike.
Your first destination is Plaza San Luis, currently a cultural and commercial complex composed of five houses. You will stop here and your guide will tell you about the tourist attraction. You will then go to the Japanese cannons and the beautiful Puerta Real Gardens. Take a moment to appreciate the greenery before heading to your fourth stop, Puerta Del Parian.
After hearing about this gateway, you will check out the ruins of Aduana Building next, which is located just outside the walls of Intramuros. From there, you will go to the historic Manila Cathedral that was built in 1571. It's the very first cathedral in the Philippines. If you’re lucky, you might even catch an ongoing wedding there. The Manila Cathedral is in front of Plaza de Roma, one of the major public squares of the city.
The final stops are the famous Fort Santiago, which was used as a defense fortress of the city in the past, and the San Agustin Church, which has been rebuilt three times due to war and natural disasters.
With all the gorgeous cobblestone streets and impressive architecture, soak in all the sights as your friendly Bambassador tour guides discuss in detail the story behind each site before biking back to the Bambike HQ, which signifies the end of the tour.
