Get ready and see the modern cities of the Philippines! This half-day escapade is set to show Metro Manila's business districts and their tourist spots including Makati, Bonifacio Global City, McKinley Hills, Mall of Asia, American War Memorial, and Bonifacio High Street. This tour is perfect for those wanting to experience Metro Manila's aesthetic and city vibe.

The day starts when your driver picks you up from your hotel in selected areas of Metro Manila. Your guide will inform you of the day's activities, starting from a short tour in of the country’s centers of economic activity – the Makati Central Business District (CBD). Home to a number of local and international corporations, it is known to be a strategic location for business and residence.

The drive around Makati CBD is followed by a tour of the 4th largest shopping mall in the Philippines and 11th in the world – Mall of Asia – or as people call it, MOA. Being easily accessible, it attracts average foot traffic of about 200,000 people a day.

The next destination is another one of the country’s world-class business and residential centers, Bonifacio Global City (BGC). You will see the stunning street art plastered around the little city together with the high-end modern architecture, you would not expect that the place was once a military base.

BGC was originally called “Fort McKinley” after the former U.S. President but was renamed “Fort Bonifacio” after the Father of Philippine Revolution, Andres Bonifacio. Just around the corner of BGC, you will see McKinley Hill where you can experience the vibe inspired by Southern Europe’s sophisticated culture.

From Europe to America in a snap, you will also get to visit the American War Memorial, which contains the largest number of graves of the military dead of World War II. The headstones are aligned to form an enormous circular pattern among trees and shrubs.

After the tour, there will be a stopover at the Italian-inspired sight which is the Venice Grand Canal Mall where you can grab snacks and hop aboard a gondola ride. There will also be time for a short walk down Bonifacio High Street and photo ops at Burgos Park in BGC. Cap off the day as the tour takes you back to your hotel after the tour.

Invite your best buddies and witness Manila’s aesthetic and modern business districts. Check availability by choosing a date above.
