The picturesque, palm-lined waterfront boulevard of Roxas Boulevard offers ocean sunset views, museums, and imposing governmental architecture. A staple of the country's tourism, the 7.6 km (4.7 mi) boulevard was designed by American architect and city planner Daniel Burnham, and is now famed for its restaurants, yacht club, and parks. Take a stroll along the length of the strip and admire the sights, or consider a romantic ride down the road by horse-drawn carriage. Look out for the Cultural Center of the Philippines, which incorporates a folk arts theater, an amusement park, and the Manila Film Center.

  • The Roxas Boulevard is the seafront in Manila. Is "long" in name and in fact, because it stretches for several kilometres from the area of Rizal park to the extreme southern of the city in the suburb of Pasay City. The boulevard more than that long is also very wide and not obvious to walk; only in some places there are pedestrian crossings that take fast because traffic lights remain green. The Avenue at all times is very busy and so the walks become real lung attacks due to the air almost unbreathable. Sea breezes are not enough to clean it up. Which is unfortunate, because the sea side there is a nice sidewalk that theoretically would encourage walking. Several important buildings face the boulevard. First of all, the Embassy of the United States, which is right on the side of the sea, in beautiful panoramic position. Museums, including the Metropolitan. Not to mention some interesting restaurants.
