Calm and Bright for the Holidays: Where to go in Binondo to get that Christmas glow

On days that you just want to relax and be pampered, being close to establishments offering quality wellness services is a treat in itself. After all, who would want to spend hours in traffic, stewing in the car and stressing over missing their appointment before they could actually relax? Most especially after going through the holiday rush.

The journey to wellness for residents along Masangkay Street in Binondo, Manila starts from the moment they step out of their doors – a prized advantage for being only a stone’s throw away from skin care clinics, fitness centers, and spas that dot the world’s oldest Chinatown.
