Start off your visit on the 12th (Mon): take in the spiritual surroundings of San Agustin Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Manila Cathedral, and then explore the activities along Manila Bay. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: get to know the fascinating history of Intramuros, look for gifts at SM Mall of Asia, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Fort Santiago.
