Colors of Manila

Creed, commerce, and cultures meet in the footpaths of Quiapo as the Colors of Manila program takes you to one of Manila’s most historic and recognizable districts! A literal hub for trade and cultural exchange, Quiapo houses almost all the beliefs of the Filipino people which makes it the best place to visit if you truly want to get to know our people.

From folk medicine, pagan amulets, and fortune tellers, Quiapo has it all. It has a Catholic basilica filled with santos, living peacefully within a Muslim mosque rhythmically calling for the Adhan within earshot. The city has everything you could ever need to see a real slice of Filipino life!

Join us as we walk through alleyways and side-street markets through the bargaining mecca of Manila. Of course, true to Manila For A Day fashion, this journey will also go through enlightening discussions on what it is like to be a Muslim in a predominantly Catholic country, as well as the role of the Filipino-Muslim community in helping build the nation.

If that’s not enough to whet your appetite for adventure, then you’ll be pleased to know that we will also bring you to the best hole-in-the-wall places that serve Filipino halal food. Delight your taste buds in a unique sampling of flavors from the provinces of Mindanao as you go from eatery to eatery in search of that truly distinct southern essence.

To cap it all off, you’ll get a sampling of the ubiquitously Filipino fast food, Jollibee. Register for this rare public run and let our very own Colors of Manila developer, Nonito Santillan Cabrera, take you on a whirlwind adventure through the colors of the Filipino people’s day-to-day lives!
