Ivan Man Dy of Old Manila Walks
When sightseeing, nothing beats walking around if you want to see details and get to know a place well. It's even better when you have a knowledgeable guide with a gazillion stories. Meet Ivan Man Dy of Old Manila Walks, one of several outfits that offer walking tours of Manila. He specializes in five areas: the Spanish-era walled city of Intramuros; San Miguel, where Malacañang Palace is located; Binondo, Manila's Chinatown; the Chinese Cemetery, with its flamboyant funerary architecture; and the campus of the Far Eastern University, with its Art Deco architecture. I really need to schedule more walks with him. If you ever visit Manila, I suggest you do too.

I love being shown a city by a local, and he does look like he enjoys what he does.
