Manila is one of the only chief cities in Asia that, even as being in Asia, has an roughly zero Southeast Asian proportion. No elephants or tigers here, no spice bazaars, no distinctive Asian heritage sites or royalty: Manila is drastically Western in all ways! However, this should not discourage you from visiting Manila! In close proximity to some of the loveliest beaches and amazing diving spots in the world, Manila is a well-liked tourist destination for divers, both specialized and amateur, as well as tourists looking to unwind and get a golden tan! Manila is well-known for its churches. Some churches to visit include the Manila cathedral, San Augustin Church, San Sebastian Church and Santuario de San Antonio.
