DISCOVER BINONDO: Chinese New Year + Ramada Hotel + 168 Shopping

Binondo Chinese New Year-87.jpg

We celebrated Raphael’s third birthday in Binondo because his birth date, February 10, coincided with the Chinese New Year of the Water Snake this year 2013.

It was a different kind of gimmick because we now have Ramada Hotel, an international standard hotel in the heart of Binondo, where you can stay overnight, enjoy the yummy treats of Binondo, and take advantage of the shopping deals at Divisoria in a more leisurely manner.

The Hotel was also the best place to experience the Chinese New Year countdown, watch the fireworks and feel the authentic vibe of the new year around the oldest Chinatown in the world. 

Here’s a photo essay of our Discover Binondo Birthday Gimmik with the Family:

    Planning Your Awesome Sofitel Escape

    Checking in a hotel within Manila to spend your long weekend is becoming a trend these days, especially for families who don’t want the hassle of a road trip and just want to have a relaxing escape. Sofitel is one of my favorite hotels because it transports you to a resort setting — without you having to leave the heart of Manila. It is a great place for families with kids and for couples who just want to escape the stress of everyday business life. Plus, it’s about one hour away from Makati.
