Commuting to Manila Chinatown


Manila Chinatown is formed by a series of small roads. So the best way to get around is either by walking, taking a sidecar, or a kalesa. This community is mostly home to the immigrant Chinese and the Filipino-Chinese. As a result, Chinatown contains serveral Chinese restaurants, shops, and cultural landmarks.
