Yesterday, I had the chance to explore Intramuros after my meeting in Makati. I had the exciting opportunity to explore the walled city first by foot.
I planned to visit the walled city for Independence Day, but I decided that one day wasn’t enough to explore it. Day 1 was all about seeing the parts which I previously did not appreciate while I was in a car.
There were quite a number of interesting nooks and crannies to appreciate and photograph.
My tour became much better when I rented a bambike (bamboo bike) for one hour. I got to ride through narrow streets and busy sidewalks in Intramuros.
I got to have some cardio and have a better understanding of the historical markers scattered throughout the walled city.
My favorite moment was reaching the site of my favorite hero Jose Rizal’s former dormitory.
My visit ended at Bathala Bar, where I had avocado ice cream and Bayani Brew.
This was definitely much better than my previous visits to Intramuros as I got to appreciate it more as I was walking and on a bike. I’ll definitely be back!
