Thanks for walking by.
Welcome to Old Manila Walks!
Let us introduce ourselves.
We’re a bunch of passionate, obsessive and saucy ‘street walkers’(!) determined to walk and talk
about one thing: the history, the culture and the heritage plus everything over, under, outside,
inside this city of our affections - Manila.
And we believe that the best way to explore our city is by foot so we have taken this experience
one step further!

Old Manila Walks operates on a simple principle: to have you experience the best of historic
Manila - one step at a time.
It's a lure to an urban adventure, a cultural loop or just a plain simple exercise for your body and
soul. Churches, temples, wet markets, historic homes, traditional shops, city walls, alleys, esteros
and graveyards. You name it, we have it.
Come, take a walk on the fun side!

the BIG Binondo Food Wok!
Nibbling our way around Chinatown
Four hundred years of history and up to four hours of decadence!
The flavors of China are now in Manila. Come eat, walk and lose those calories as we explore the
breadth, the width and most intimate alleys of Manila’s Chinese quarter!
We start, quite paradoxically, in a 16th century Baroque cathedral while making our way down to
a miraculous Chinese shrine! Take a peek at a traditional chocolate factory! Listen to immigrant
stories of yore! Sing hurrahs to an authentic Hokkien-style lumpia!
We’ll horse around the streets talking local history, gorging Chinese treats and even checking out
the district’s Period adventure! Forget South Beach, it’s Tsinoy chop suey and more as we nibble
our way down through Chinatown!
Tour route:
Plaza Calderon dela Barca * Basilica de San Lorenzo Ruiz * Santo Cristo de Longos Shrine *
Ongpin Street (Traditional Chinatown Shops and Restaurants) * Carvajal Alley Market
Meet at the lobby inside Binondo Church
