The Shoe Capital of the Philippines


Did you automatically think of the former First Lady Imelda Marcos? Or maybe you don't know her but you have heard the name for sure when you hear stories about collections of thousands of shoes. Yes, we are visiting the museum where you can find more than 700 pairs of shoes (unfortunately not thousands anymore '') of one of the most popular First Lady in the World. The Museum is located in Marikina City which is North East of Manila City. Manila is not the only place to see when you dock in the Philippines. Why don't you take a different tour far from where all the tourist buses are going. The highlight of the tour is the Shoe Capital of the Philippines where they produce almost 70% of shoes in the country then later on added the famous shoes of the former first lady and the biggest shoe in the world displayed in one of their malls. Along the way, we are stopping in Quezon City, the former capital, to visit the cleanest public market in Metro Manila.
