This Fun Walking Tour Reveals the Grandeur of Manila at Night

Bring your cameras!

(SPOT.ph) With dark alleys that look a lot like an endless labyrinth, the streets of Manila have a reputation of being unsafe at night. The local government, however, has been keen on improving the roads by installing lampposts, clearing sidewalks, and even renovating a whole bridge. And you might just fall in love all over again with the grandeur of Manila with Manila Night Walk, an evening heritage and photo walk happening on January 4. The tour starts at 5 p.m. at San Sebastian Church in Quiapo.

As the sun starts to set, the heritage and photo walk continues to the ancestral houses in Bilibid Viejo, Hidalgo, and Calle San Sebastian before going for some food and drinks at the restored Laperal Apartments. This post-war residence now houses a dormitory, a trailer that has been transformed into a convenience store, and hole-in-the-wall restaurants. After sundown, the group goes to the Manila City Hall, the National Museum of the Philippines, Gomburza Monument, and Intramuros. The walk continues to the Instagram-worthy Jones Bridge, and ends with a nightcap at Fred's Revolution.
