Harper’s Bazaar recommends 8 Manila weekend stopovers


American women’s fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar has recommended Manila as a weekend stopover for travellers who visit the Philippines for its island destinations.

The U-S based publication chronicled a list of city offerings for Australian travellers to experience Manila “the right way” before proceeding with their island hopping.

In “The Bazaar Guide to a Weekend in Manila” writer Erin Cook lists how visitors could better spend their waiting time exploring what the country’s capital has to offer instead of staying at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

Shangri-La at the Fort


The Bazaar suggests a weekend stay at the 5-star Shangri-La at the Fort for its luxurious and complete facilities such as restaurants, gym, pools, spa and shopping mall.

Exploring Manila wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the 16th century walled city of Intramuros which witnessed the Philippines’ many historical moments, and where cathedrals and museums abound.
