Ermita is a district in the city of Manila. Ermita is one of the older red light districts in Manila and is a bit more run down than the other districts mentioned in this article.

However, Ermita is still one of the best districts to find a high quantity of freelancers in the bars and the pricing in this district is more affordable than in Malate and P Burgos Street because of this.
