Manila Bay, Manila

2.3
#4 of 12 in Parks in Manila
Water Body Nature / Park
With its paved, gently curving 2 km (1.2 mi) promenade lined by palm trees, Manila Bay makes a popular spot for strolling, relaxing, and people-watching. Stretching between the U.S. Embassy and the national cultural center, the area features many cafes and restaurants, plus live music performances complementing the sea views. Take a horse-drawn carriage ride, or simply cruise the area on foot. At night, the area buzzes with open-air cafes and itinerant artists, but you should watch your wallet.

Where to stay in Manila

Manila has the full spectrum of hospitality options, from highly affordable hostels you can book on the spot to luxury four- and five-star resorts. Opt to stay in mid-range and upscale hotels clustered around the central business district, or score sea views at the resorts facing Manila Bay. If you choose to go for the budget-friendlier hostel, note that many have large dorm rooms with many bunk beds, catering primarily to job-seekers, while others are designed for young backpackers looking to make new friends.
