Unique in Asia, this was a European-style medieval fortified city that functioned as the seat of government from 1571 to 1898. The massive walls stretch some 4.5 kilometers, enclosing a 64-hectare area once occupied by palaces, churches, monasteries, schools and wealthy residences ('Intramuros' means 'inside the walls'). Sadly, the whole city was razed to the ground by bombings conducted by American forces when they recaptured Manila from the Japanese in 1945. Today most of the walls, gates and bulwarks have been restored, affording visitors a glimpse into the past.
I learned about this new attraction in Intramuros and tried it out!
It was so fun! I was so happy to have tried it and I want to share it to everyone who will drop by Manila.
You'll get to see all of Intramuros complete with tour guides and security while at the same riding on ELECTRIC CHARIOTS!

There is a lot of history you can learn here... There is also a lot of relaxation you can enjoy here... Plus, golfers shouldn't pass up a chance to play night golf all the way until midnight has passed alongside the walls of Manila historic past... By the way, the golf course isn't as easy as it looks... Beware!
fascinating and peaceful ambiance with lots of history to tell. A must see place when your looking for a quite ambiance and interested to learn more about philipppines history, part of stuffs here are old and has an story to tell , lots of things to know in this place. One of the historical place here in the country. Been here many time since my hiigh school and college days.
I like the innovative & modern way of sight-seing in Intramuros via the e-chariots it only shows that no matter how old the historical place is it can adapt to modern society applicable & can be enjoyed by any age.. I just strongly recommend that discounts should be given to students who want and wish to experience travelling in Intramuros via the e-chariots.
I don't know what to say as a young girl growing up in that place it gives me an emotional feelings.The photos I've seen in the internet was not there when I was living in that place.It reminds me the past and thank you very much for putting those photos in the internet
