Outdoor Activities in Manila

By Viator, June 2014

Whether it is checking out one of Manila's cultural heritage sites, taking a stroll in the park or building up a sweat with some heart-pounding sport activities, being in the great outdoors is one of the essential charms of visiting  the sunny Philippines.

Located at the mouth of the Pasig River in Intramuros, a trip over to Fort Santiago may be just the way to start off your outdoor excursion. One of the best places to go in Manila, this 15th century fortress contains some seriously well-preserved historical artifacts, including a Spanish dungeon WWII tank and the former prison of national hero Dr. Jose Rizal.

Speaking of Dr. Rizal, the Rizal Shrine, also in Intramuros, is one of the best park spaces Manila has on offer, complete with stunning monuments and cultural buildings -- it is a can't miss destination.

Next up, the Greenhills Shopping Center is an outdoor shopping paradise with more than 2,000 shops in all selling anything from clothes to electronics, local CDs and DVDs and jewelry. As it's one of those places that can swallow you alive, try to keep your wits about you as you make your way through the dense crowds. Also, don't forget that haggling can be the difference between a great trip and a lousy one.

Toward the later hours of the afternoon (3pm.. or 4p.m.), head down to Manila Bay for one of the nicest sunsets around. Boasting lots of room for biking, jogging or just relaxing, Manila Bay is a developing part of town that is well used by locals for several activities, including the occasional boat race or scenic cruise.
