The capital of the Philippines, Manila sits by the bay on the island of Luzon. Mixing Spanish Colonial architecture with modern skyscrapers, it is chaotic, busy, and worth much more than a passing look. The National Museum of the Filipino People houses pre-Hispanic artifacts in an imposing Neoclassical building, and there is also the Markina Shoe Museum, which displays 800 pairs of shoes belonging to the infamous Imelda Marcos. For a complete contrast, visit Fort Santiago in Intramuros, a citadel used in the past by the military. It not only has barracks and cell blocks but also fountains, plazas, and galleries.
