Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Do your shopping at Market Square Kauppatori and Artisaani. Museum-lovers will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and ARTag Gallery. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Brunberg Candy Factory Shop (in Porvoo), Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo (in Jarvenpaa) and Linden Esplanade (in Kotka). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, take a stroll through Katajanokka, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and stop by Ullanlinna.

To see photos, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Helsinki day trip site.

If you are flying in from Philippines, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 13th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
