Manila Chinatown, or Binondo as it’s known to the locals, is always first on every food crawl list. But aside from the gastronomic treats, Binondo has more to offer – its rich culture and heritage.

The oldest Chinatown in the world, this is where you’ll discover how the culture of the Far East has influenced the life of every Filipino, as you go on a culture-enriched adventure. 

Ongpin Street, the district’s most famous street, is filled with vendors from all walks of life. Some sell their fresh produce or lucky charms at stands, some have mini-stores in alleyways, and others just sell their products in boxes on the sidewalks. 

This is also a very popular venue for photo walks organised by photography enthusiast groups.
