For a destination with the perfect blend of glamour and tranquility, you might consider taking your next cruise from Manila, the capital city of the Philippines. Having originally been destroyed during a bombing in World War 2, Manila has since risen as a city filled with glitz, charm, and stylishness. Manila is filled with iconic landmarks, parks, churches, museums, and many interesting tourist attractions! There’s also a bunch of shopping malls, thought-provoking art museums, resorts, restaurants, and much, much more. With so many incredible options for activities and entertainment, if you take a cruise that starts in Manila, you may want to consider staying in Manila for an additional day or two so you can experience as much as possible.
