PLACES TO VISIT IN THE CITY OF MANILA in the Philippines

The CITY OF MANILA, known as "Maynila" for the Filipinos, is the capital city of the Philippines and one of the cities that make up the greater metropolitan area of Metro Manila. Manila is the center of government in the country and one of the central hubs of a thriving metropolitan area home to over 14 million people. It is located on the shores of Manila Bay just west of the geographical center of Metro Manila, also known as the National Capital Region (NCR), which lies on an isthmus between Manila Bay and Laguna de Bay in southern Luzon.

PLAZA SAN LUIS.
Aside from gift and specialty shops, the complex has a museum at Casa Manila, containing the 19th century and early 20th century furniture's found in a typical filipino illustrado or the privileged class home
At least that's what the sign said, but it shows my ignorance. I was expecting a shopping mall.....





MANILA BAY where the famous "Battle of Manila Bay" was fought between the Americans and the Spaniards in 1898.
This has a nice promenade that you can walk along taking in the nice sun sets.




Will post more tomorrow, its party time now....
