Many sightseeing and tourist attractions in Manila are on the track of LRT1 (Light Rail Transit). Going from south you can start on the bazaar of Baclaran and nearby Edsa Pasay station, going towards city centre through Libertad, Gil Puyat and Vito Cruz. Then you'll be approaching Malate (Quirino Avenue and Pedro Gil), entering old Manila - United Stations Avenue and Central and Carriedo stations. The public transport will then take you to Doroteo Jose, Bambang, Tayuman and Blumentritt. Finally you will find yourselves in Quezon on stations Abad Santos, R. Papa, 5th Avenue and Monumento.
The third line of Manila public transport network is LRT2. It goes eastwards from the city centre, starting at Recto and Legarda going towards Pureza, V.Mapa J.Ruiz, Gilmore and Belmonte. From the bus terminal and LRT station at Cubao continues to Anonas, Katipunan and Santolan.
Most sightseeing destinations in Manila are alongside LRT1. Worth a visit are Coconut Palace (built for Pope John Paul II), Manila Zoo, Malate Church then take a break at Rizal park and stroll around Intramuros. North Manila can offer Quiapo Church or Chinese Cemetery. For shopping destinations there are nearly endless possibilities in Makati, Fort Bonifacio or Ortigas. Sport events take place at St.Ana racetrack and Araneta (Cubao). Lonely Planet provides a concise description of Manila sightseeing tips. For maps, I would recommend to start with MapQuest, a good MapQuest comparison can be found here.
Connection with provinces: there are 4 major bus terminals. The one at Taft goes towards Legaspi, Dagupan and Zambales. Batangas and Lucena destinations are covered from Gil Puyat. Northbound buses to Alaminos, Baguio and Olongapo depart from Cubao. Pampanga and Pangasinan buses leave from Monumento.
