On our second day in Manila we woke up early and made our way to the walled city of Intramuros (meaning: within the walls) which is one of the oldest, historical and protected parts of Manila, It was at one point home to the Spanish government during the Spanish colonial period. Outside the wall was known as extramuros (meaning: outside the walls). Arriving there one of the very first places we saw was the very impressive Manila cathedral after which we headed directly to the walled city to see the gate of Fort Santiago which had gone through a lot of reconstructed after nearly being completely destroyed in World War II. There’s a museum which was home to a Spanish governing officer, the old theatre and guard post towards the end near the river. Thought it is worth visiting, I suggest that you only go if you are really interested in colonial history, an architecture enthusiast or if you have some extra time/or a day to spare and like walking. The place is vast and tiring, you can hire a horse and carriage or go for the White Knight Electric Chariot Tours. My friend and I walked and explored both the inner and outer walled area, there are some great restaurants and museums dotted around. At one point I even ended up skating with some local kids and in a wedding inside San Agustin Church.
Lost in Thailand is the first Chinese film to make over 1 billion yuan, It is a Chinese comedy directed and co-written by Xu Zheng. Two competitive Chinese businessmen (who where once best friends) go searching for their boss in Thailand in order to win a contract, whilst there they meet a naive Chinese tourist and embark on a funny, scheming and at times unbelievable journey across Thailand.
This film will have you laughing out loud so keep it for a cloudy or rainy day.
