1. Awesome Tour Guide

For this tour, we had Andrew as our local guide. Being a Filipino-Chinese born in Binondo, he really knows a lot about the place, the food, and the ins and outs of Binondo. He shared to us a lot of information about the culture and traditions of the Chinoys, and graciously answered almost everything we asked him.

2. Delicous Chinese Food

On this Binondo Food Crawl, we tasted Chinese-style fresh lumpia, sampled on dumplings, siomai and hakaw, sip on a hot bowl of noodles, snack on fried siopao, and end it with mouth-watering fusion desserts. My favorites are definitely the lumpia which I have tasted for the first time, the dumplings and the desserts which are really good! I'm surely going back to Binondo anytime soon and enjoy the rest of the cuisines that Binondo has to offer.

3. It's more than just the usual Binondo Food Tour

Having a local guide gives you a better insight of the place you're visiting. So, aside from the food tour, we also had a chance to roam around the different streets of Binondo in between the food stops. While walking around, we would stop on different interesting and historical spots and our local guide would tell us stories and interesting information about them.

My favorite would definitely the time when we climbed the rooftop at the 30th floor of a tall building and had a 360-degrees view the City of Manila - a view point not everyone is lucky to see. Here, we saw the Manila City Hall, the Binondo District, Quiapo, Pasig River, and a lot more.
