I've been hearing so many great things about the walking tour of Carlos Celdran in Intramuros. Everyone I know who tried it only had good things to say. Indeed, I wasn't disappointed. Carlos Celdran was such a natural. Everything he says just comes easily, leaving us hanging on to every word.
I was enjoying too much that I wasn't able to take lots of photos. The tour was divided into different periods: the pre-Hispanic period, the Spanish colonization, the American occupation, the Japanese invasion, and the present. The tour started at Fort Santiago, then proceeded to San Agustin Church, and ended at Plaza San Luis where we were served a glass of ice-cold halo-halo.
(For those who visited my blog just to learn more about the Intramuros tour, please bear with my outfit shots. Instead of doing separate posts, I decided to combine them into a lengthier one.)
In walking tours like this, make sure you're wearing the right clothing. Light, breezy tops are highly advisable if you're expecting to be under the scorching heat of the sun for a long time. Thankfully, it wasn't that hot on the day of the tour (yay!).
It was an afternoon well-spent. Thanks Carlos Celdran!
