And hopefully, while driving a Kia Picanto.

Many people would travel far and wide just to learn about history, enrich their cultural side, get close to nature, or even explore culinary delights. Yet, did you know that Metro Manila has a wealth of these attractions for those who are willing to explore and discover?

With that being said, Kia Philippines got you covered as the South Korean automaker suggested these places you can explore after the enhanced community quarantine while driving a Kia Picanto.

Travel back in time

Intramuros, the Walled City, along with Fort Santiago are two of the most visited places when one wants to learn about Filipino history. There is also the famed San Agustin Church run by the Augustinian friars. Intramuros is located in Manila near the Manila City Hall.

Museum tours

You don’t need to go to New York’s Metropolitan Museum to get your fill of culture and the arts. Simply visit the likes of the National Museum in Ermita, Manila or Art In Island in Cubao, Quezon City.

Those who want to enrich their knowledge of science might want to check out the Mind Museum in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. There is also the Dessert Museum — a unique peek into anything that satisfies one’s sweet tooth.

Get close to nature

You don’t need to drive too far to commune with nature. Simply head over to the La Mesa Eco Park and take in the fresh air amid a tree-lined backdrop. The park is located in North Fairview, Quezon City.

Tickle your palette

While there is a slew of eateries and restaurants all over the Metro serving a global mix of international cuisine, Binondo Food Crawl and Poblacion in Makati by night are two of the most interesting to date.

The former, as the name suggests, can be found in Chinatown and offers some of the best Chinese dishes out there. The latter, on the other hand, caters to millennials and treats them to dishes that one would not normally find in at the neighborhood mall.
