Manila Bay, Manila

2.2
#4 of 12 in Parks in Manila
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.

    Here you can relax from the hustle and bustle of the city times. In particular, the air is here more or less fresh.

    It is fine, is certainly sinking in Manila Bay sunset of Manila Bay is one of the three major world and said the Sun. Roxas Odori embankment on the sunset is best ^ _ ^ but I live in Manila over the years, but not seen sunset in Giza real thought, or see the Sun, and not come to Manila Bay, if you stay at Hotel malate Roxas Odori in tourism, our chance, there is a non-dazzling sunset watching, please impress ^ _ ^

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.
