1.0
#67 of 127 in Things to do in Manila
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.

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.
