We sure miss the trips in Manila—the street food trips, the historical sites, and even riding the crowded trains. Since the quarantine kept us inside of our homes, we can’t travel to our favorite spots, or so we thought. You don’t have to miss out on the things you could do and places you could visit by taking the LRT-1!
It’s now more possible than ever to take in the best of the city through the wonders of technology. Yes, you can visit and enjoy Manila from home. Here’s what you can do.
Visit Museums Online
Museums are always open online. Some museums have made their exhibits and displays available all the time on the Internet. The Museo de Intramuros, Ayala Museum, and Presidential Museum and Library in Malacanang Palace have partnered with Google to put their works online, making sure you’ll never run out of new things to learn at home.
Watch CCP Shows, Concerts, and Plays on YouTube
You can now turn to the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ YouTube account, on which they’ve been uploading recorded shows. While their list of full shows is still small, you can be sure that this will grow in the coming days as the organization recognizes the need for a wide variety of performances.
Get Your Your Favorite Food from Binondo via Delivery
One good thing that’s worth mentioning is that a number of restaurants have already reopened for delivery! This includes some of your comfort food from Binondo, such as Eng Bee Tin, Ying Ying Tea House, Sincerity, Chuan Kee, and Salido. Ordering from these establishments is also a great way to support them during this time!
Get Divisoria-like Deals by Shopping Online at Home
Those hankering for a shopping spree in their favorite Manila shopping centers can still get the same experience by shopping online at your favorite e-commerce sites and local shops’ social media pages. For local food and products, you can browse through the various partnered regional merchants in the online leg of the Philippine Harvest?
These inventive and innovative ways to get the best of Manila through the internet will definitely keep you busy while staying safe at home.
