Manila has loads to offer, but after taking in the Philippines capital’s pleasures and cultural sights, a day or two outside the city will broaden your horizons as to what the tropical archipelagic nation as a whole is really like. Here are some of the best day trips from Manila.

Corregidor Island – 31 miles (50 km) away
A popular day trip destination for history buffs, Corregidor Island witnessed one of the Philippines’ most significant battles of World War II. While touring ruined barracks, secret passageways, and the Pacific War Memorial, visitors learn about the role the country played in the Pacific front, defending against invading Japanese forces. 

Tagaytay Ridge and Taal Volcano – 45 miles (72 km) away
One of the country’s most active volcanoes, part of the Pacific Ring of Fire, sits within easy day-touring distance of metro Manila. Active day-trippers to the Tagaytay Ridge and Taal Volcano in Batangas have the opportunity to trek to the active volcano’s peak, take a boat ride to a volcanic island, or go horseback riding along the shores of Taal Lake. 

Mt. Pinatubo – 57 miles (92 km) away
Visiting majestic Mount Pinatubo from Manila requires an early wake-up, but travelers will be rewarded with an action-packed day of off-roading and hiking to the spectacular Pinatubo Crater and its emerald-hued lake. 

Subic Bay – 99 miles (160 km) away
Part history, part natural beauty, Subic Bay offers one of the nation’s most unique outdoor experiences—a chance to learn survival skills from an indigenous Aetas guide at a training camp and tour the Subic Naval Base (a former US naval base) to learn more about the region’s military history.
