An Honored Heritage

Filipinos have a heritage that they are proud of and it has grown over the years. Chinese and Japanese trading practices has greatly influenced the ways of the land and made it much more intriguing. Although they gained their independence in 1946, it was the American influence that introduced educational value and infrastructure to the country. The capital city of the Philippines, Manila, was once comparable to European cities in its beauty but that image was destroyed as a result of the Second World War.
