Destinations in the Philippines served by Finnair
Manila is the capital of the Philippines and is the heart and soul of the country. The city is a compelling mix of poorer areas and rich, slick city skyscrapers. Manila is a coastal city, so you can relax on the beach, walk around the harbour or get lost in the culture and history. Check out Fort Santiago, San Agustin Church or the National Museum of the Filipino People to embrace the culture.

Chicken adobo is one of the most famous foods in the Philippines. It is a dish of chicken (or sometimes pork) marinated in a mixture of soy sauce and vinegar. Soups, broths and rice dishes are also popular. Meat and seafood feature very heavily in Philippine food.
