 *Known as one of the capital cities on the rise, Manila has been included in the “Emerging Cities Outlook” list. As the metropolis currently tops the list of most densely populated cities in the world (1.6 million people in an area of 16.56 square meters), this recognition is quite a feat.


* Manila’s moniker was derived from a flowering mangrove. The name was believed to have come from Maynilad, which means “a place with “Nila.” A flowering shrub or mangrove tree, Nila or nilad is found in Madagascar, tropical Asia, and the western Pacific. Back in the day, it was said that the city has an abundance of Nila at the delta of the Pasig River and along the shores of Manila Bay. Consequently, the place was named after the plant. Today, Nila can be found in small patches in the Las Piñas-Parañaque Critical Habitat and Eco-Tourism Area.  


*Binondo, the oldest Chinatown in the world, is located in Manila. It was founded back in the sixteenth century as a community for Chinese Catholics. Today, the district is predominantly overrun by Filipino-Chinese and Chinese constituents and continues to attract retailers, restaurants and other businesses. In fact, it may be regarded as one of Manila’s most prominent business districts.


* Before the emerging prominence of business hubs such as Makati and Ayala Avenue, Escolta used to be the premier district in the country. Back then, it was the most sophisticated and fashionable urban hub in Binondo and contained a shopping strip, business offices, jewelry stores. In fact, the first ice cream store in the country known as Clarke’s was established here and so was the first movie house.


* Founded in 1611, the University of Santo Tomas is the oldest university not only in the Philippines but in Asia as well. In terms of student population, it is also recognized as the largest Catholic University in the world.


* The country’s biggest and world-renowned “University Belt” is found in the districts of Quiapo, Sampaloc, San Miguel and Santa Cruz making it the premier residential area for university students. However, there are also colleges and universities situated along Taft Avenue from Ermita to Malate and another one inside Intramuros.

* From the 16th to 19th century, Manila was part of an integral galleon trade route. Goods sourced from all over Asia such as pearls, silk and spices were loaded into these ships which sailed from the metropolis to parts of the world.
