The Philippines Republic consists of a string of islands in the Pacific. It was under the domination of New Spain from 1521 to 1898 and the U.S.A. from 1898 to 1945 of for four cencuries in total. Its culture, therefore, is similar to that of Latin American countries. However, the Spanish influence, when mixed with the Eastern Culture, lends the culture of the Philippines a uniqueness.

Manila is the capital and the major port of the country. Located at the mouth of the Pasig River, it serves as the centre of trade, industry and tourism. When it was still under Spanish rule, the administrative centre, known as Intramuros, was established and it has become a monument created by Spain and, today is one of the tourist attractions of Manila. Other places of interest include the San Agustin Cathedral, the Casa Manila residential area, the Makati shopping Mall and Santiago Fort.
