Philippines: Must Visit Museum

Senor Enriques recommends the Bahay Tsinoy Museum as a must see. The museum celebrates Chinese heritage in Philippines. “
With great embarrassment I admit it was only when I moved back to Manila from New York that I finally realized the immense influence of the Chinese in our local history; that is, even before the arrival of the Spaniards. Never thought before that the Tsinoys are just as much a Filipino as I am, as well as my Ilocano and Bicolano cousins.”
