"Rainy Sunday at Manila Bay" Top 5 Page for this destination People/Local Culture Tip by syllybabe

People/Local Culture, Manila: 26 reviews and 32 photos


Favorite thing: Along Roxas Blvd. there are now restaurants and cabanas and swings where people can sit around and wait for the sunset or hang out after a morning jog.

This pic was taken on my way to the airport to go home to Bacolod one Sunday morning during the monsoon season.

It's a great place to spend time with the family after mass at the Malate Church across the street or you can take a stroll after lunch at the Aristocrat.

The area can have very busy traffic during the week because Roxas Blvd. is a main thoroughfare and the US Embassy and many hotels are along this road but take advantage of quiet Sundays, early mornings, and beautiful sunsets.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
