The district of Binondo in Manila is the oldest Chinatown in the world. One of the popular landmarks is the Minor Basilica of San Lorenzo Ruiz fronting Plaza Calderon de la Barca. The church originally built in the late 1600s, still stood through the test of time saved from a handful of re-constructions after the Second World War. That's a bit of history for you, folks! Anyway, found myself moons ago in one of its beatiful landmarks in the middle of the busy streets of Sta. Cruz, which also fronting the Sta. Cruz church. At night, strobe of lights illuminates and the fountain is just so amazing just as it is spectacular during the day. Aside from the historical fixtures of Binondo, Chinatown also boast the best, authentic Chinese cuisine. Take your pick with every single alley dotted with Chinese restaurants. Do not be fooled by this quaint dining houses, they only serves the best. See it for yourself. In the meantime, enjoy! Light and love, everyone!
