Historical Beauty of Manila

You can’t bring an unwritten place to life without losing something substantial. Manila is the cradle, the graveyard, the memory. The Mecca, the Cathedral, the bordello. The shopping mall, the urinal, the discotheque. I’m hardly speaking in metaphor. It’s the most impermeable of cities. How does one convey all that?
Miguel Syjuco, Ilustrado

Far from the noisy streets, restless people and filthy surroundings of Manila, there are stories worth telling. Stories far beyond the horrendous scenarios we often hear and see. Because beneath all of the unappealing notion of this place, there is a story beautifully carved — something worth discovering.

Manila is beautiful. This I can prove so true, the very moment I let myself drowned inside it.

It was a beautiful experience traversing the streets of Manila. Here, I have seen spectacular views, landmarks and places which makes the place meaningful. With Ms. Angie, my dear friend, we enjoyed seeing things I never thought Manila can offer.

I never regret spending my day exploring Manila. T’was a unforgettable experience. A great masterpiece we all need to see as a Filipino.

Ms. Angie and I, enjoying our trip. :)

Manila is indeed fabulous. We only need to take some time to appreciate all its hidden beauty and the history it tells us. Manila is really the heart and soul of the country.
