Get a taste of the Philippines — the “melting pot of Asia” — on a Holland America Line cruise. Its capital, Manilla, is a modern metropolis that encompasses the colonial walled city of Intramuros and Fort Santiago ruins; pay homage at the American Memorial Cemetery, aka Asia’s Arlington. Manilla is located on the Philippines’ largest island, Luzon, also home to the world’s smallest volcano. Take a ferry to the island-fortress of Corregidor to view WWII ruins and the massive Malinta Tunnel.
