Club Intramuros Golf Course


Club Intramuros features an 18-hole golf course. Built in 1907, it is the oldest golf course in the country right in the city center. The course is relatively small but is sizable in terms of the challenges it entails; most of the holes include water hazards, out-of-bounds, or both, so everybody is sure to have an exciting time. A game can be played in approximately two hours, which is ideal for busy people who are looking to unwind through a quick game of golf. Surrounded by the historic walls of Intramuros and a refreshing greenery, Club Intramuros is also a great place to relax and just appreciate the view of the surrounding city while playing. Club Intramuros is very accessible from the Manila Hotel, museums, and many other tourist attractions in the city, including Rizal Park, Fort Santiago, San Agustin Church, Manila Cathedral, and Baluarte de San Diego.

Museo Pambata


The Museo Pambata is a children’s interactive museum, the first of its kind in the Philippines. It is in a sense an alternative to the formal classroom environment where learning resembles a one-way street – the teacher imparts knowledge and the students absorb it. In Museo Pambata, children can use their total senses and learn various concepts at their own pace. It excites the minds of the young, inspires them to learn more, and most importantly revitalizes what child learning should be – fun and exciting.

It has a repository of relics, impressive ship wrecks, sculptures, paintings that moulded the nation. It is an impressive treasury of the Philippine’s natural and cultural heritage covering science, education and culture.



The Philippine General Hospital opened in 1907. It has retained much of its American colonial architecture from the turn of the 20th century. It is the biggest teaching hospital in the country under the University of the Philippines. With its 1,500 beds, it is also the biggest government tertiary hospital of the country. It has modern facilities with cutting edge technology. It has always been considered the hospital of “last resorts” by many patient seeking treatment for their afflictions. During the Battle for the Liberation of Manila of World War 2, the Americans spared the Manila Hotel and the Philippine General Hospital from their precision surgical bombings. Manila was second only to Warsaw, Poland as the most devastated Allied countries during WW2.
