Manila will welcome you to the Philippines in one frenetic haze of hurtling jeepneys and gritty port areas. A colossal city, you’d do well to focus your time on the district of Intramuros. That’s the old Spanish heart of the capital, a maze of cobbled lanes fringed with Mexican-looking cantinas, all ringed by age-stained fortification walls. Day trips from the center can also reveal some of the startling wonders of Luzon island. They include the mighty volcano of Taal, where you can trek a submerged crater on the Pacific Ring of Fire.
