Last December we were on a do it yourself walking tour of the best field trip destinations in Metro Manila. Me, Kenneth and Titus visited Manila’s top tourist spots from the Walled City of Intramuros to Fort Santiago then to Rizal Park or Luneta along Roxas Ave. After the metro’s historical tour we went to the shopper’s haven in Greenhills and then to SM Mall of Asia.
