  • If you're bringing a car, you can park it around Binondo Church or at Lucky Chinatown Mall and start your food trip from there.
  • Plan your itinerary. List the places you want to visit and use google map to navigate the streets of Binondo and to find the restaurants listed above.
  • If you wish to stay for a night in Binondo, there are a few hotels in Binondo to choose from. I highly recommend Ramada by Wyndham Manila Central and Red Planet Hotel Manila Binondo. I've tried both and they both have very nice location near the restaurants.
  • Since there are only a few hotels in Binondo, be sure to book in advance online - especially during Chinese New Year when these hotels are mostly fully booked.
  • Binondo is generally safe. But always be careful and mindful of your belongings when walking around its busy streets.
