Top Holiday Package Deals in Manila

Holiday In Manila

There are several cities with the nickname “Pearl of the Orient”, but only in Manila is the world truly your oyster. With Spanish, Chinese, Malay and Western influences, the city is the melting pot of Southeast Asia. Discover a city that’s on the rise (just like your getaway-planning game) with Manila holiday packages.

Things to Do in Manila

Rizal Park is one of the largest urban parks in Asia, so the amount of things to see here should come as no surprise. Find your zen on the serene paths of the Chinese Garden…if you can get past the dragons guarding the gate. Prefer a little more rock and roll on your Manila holiday? The dancing fountain show in the Central Lagoon has exploding water rockets and fireballs, which is pretty cool, we guess.

Get at least one work-appropriate story under your belt with a visit to the Cultural Center of the Philippines to see the national ballet, philharmonic orchestra and national theatre company. The nightlife on Philippines holidays doesn’t get going until late, so you’ll have plenty of time. You’ll hit the clubs feeling sophisticated and enlightened—though you may not leave them that way.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

A Manila holiday package is your ticket to some serious shopping: In the Philippines, “malling” is actually a verb. The SM Mall of Asia is the third-largest in the world, so you can find a snazzy outfit, load up at the buffet and prep for your big night out with a mani-pedi, all without leaving air-conditioned bliss. Divisoria Market will impress adventurous shoppers, with plenty of haggling and elbow-throwing to score deals on everything from pearls to fuzzy slippers.

If you prefer to grab and go so you can start getting your drink on, just pop into your nearby panaderia for hearty siopao, a steamed bun stuffed with plenty of protein. Celebrating something special? (Or just made of money?) Fine dining abounds near the Greenbelt in the Makati City neighbourhood. There is a bus stop, but your baller self will want to check out Manila car hire deals on lastminute.com.au so you can ride in style. Whatever your cash level, it’s always a good idea to know these four words: “Extra rice pa nga!”

“Nails done, hair done, everything did”? Makati City is home to the upscale nightlife as well. If dreadlocks and bongos are more your style, Manila holidays have you covered in Quezon City. And if your tastes fall somewhere between beard wax and gold chains, Malate is close to the city centre and hopping with live music. When you’re still up at dawn, take another stroll by Rizal Park to see groups practicing tai chi and arnis de mano, or stick fighting. The next day, ask for champorado at your breakfast spot. It’s sweet chocolate rice pudding—and you can’t go wrong with any of those words.

What’s Next?

Find out why “It’s more fun in the Philippines” with Manila holiday deals from lastminute.com.au. Mix and match airfares and accommodation to find a match that goes together even better than Brangelina. You’ll be the best tanggero around in no time (that’s the one who pours the shots!).
