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. All these sites on just a single day and by way of walking and public commute; it was a very affordable way to discover Manila. And you too can experience the best sites of the city without signing up and paying for any Manila Tour Package. Some adventures are best done by walking!
Field trip experiences and story resumes … we were sort of tracing the last steps of Dr. Rizal so we walked back from the Fort to Intramuros, got out at the gate near Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila and walked all the way to Luneta. It was a long walk hehehe but it was windy and cloudy so it was okay. (Weather then was gloomy, the week after our trip to the capital Sendong happened).
