(SPOT.ph) With its cobblestone streets and centuries-old walls, Intramuros in Manila seems to be a small neighborhood stuck in time. You can walk around the forts, ride a bamboo bike to go through narrow roads, or even hop on a kalesa to complete the Spanish-era experience. The latest transport option available in Intramuros is the tranvia, which is patterned after the horse-drawn buses that once plied its roads. You can now rent one for at least P3,000.

One tranvia can fit up to 25 people, including the driver. Rates are P3,000 for a four-hour rental and P6,000 for an eight-hour use. You need to pay an additional P750 for every excess hour. The route, of course, is limited to areas within Intramuros.
