Manila Chinatown Photo Gallery

Across the river from Intramuros, Chinatown was established by the Spanish in the 1590s within close proximity of the walled city so they could be kept under close watch. Despite a Chinese massacre in 1603, Fujian migrants kept coming to keep this district alive and busy.
