Not so crowded unlike fort Santiago. My son really loves it also my in-laws and my mom. We really had a good and relaxing time there. :)

Our kids loved exploring the Baluarte and Japanese gardens. There was a lot of interesting things to look at and wonder about. We walked all over, climbing the stairs to look down a maze like circular chamber structure, getting in one of the guard towers....More

From this hidden away corner of Intramuros you can visit the charming garden and access a great section of the old city walls with the best views out on the Manila skyline.

This is a must see if you are interested in the culture and of Manila. It's the best kept port, now much more like a garden but it's definitely a stop something going to.

We visited this around 12 noon hence it is really so hot. The entrance fee is very minimal and you can get a small brochure about the area. However aside from that not much to see. No guides nor any description foe us to read.

Lovely gardens being the entrance to Fort Santiago . Beautiful derelict building still showing the scars of war with bullet holes everywhere. Lots of figures to put your head in for silly photos etc
