Area Information
One of the most photographed sunsets in Asia is over Manila Bay, a blazing sphere sinking peacefully into the ocean, the gentle slopes of Corregidor Island and Bataan Peninsula in the foreground - a scene that can only be otherwise conjurred in the movies. But from the breezy balcony of this cozy 12th-floor condominium, it is the nightly treat. Sunsets are not the only treasure this location offers. One of Manila's most architecturally unique structures, Legaspi Towers on the Boulevard is the embodiment of the cliche "they don't build them like this any more." Constructed in the 1970's with a heavy art deco influence, the building itself can be a museum piece, with a cavernous lobby showcasing original works by Filipino artists, marble staircase, intricately laid brick floors and glass elevators looking out to the bay, the Towers are destined to be an historical landmark. Monitored 24 hours by friendly and helpful security staff always greeting you with a smile at every entrance, the bottom four floors house businesses including a hair salon, dental clinic, convenience store, money changer, one-day laundry service, travel agent, coffeeshop offering traditional breakfast and lunch with internet access and a swimming pool on the fourth floor terrace overlooking Roxas Boulevard.

A 5-minute walk away, immediately across Roxas Boulevard, is one of the other architectural showpieces of Manila - the Cultural Center of the Philippines, where one can take in a diverse variety of productions, from touring Broadway musicals to independent film festivals featuring cutting-edge Philippine cinema to exhibits of ancient artifacts. A block away in the opposite direction is Harrison Plaza, Manila's first shopping mall hosting a conglomeration of shops and eateries offering traditional Filipino to western fast-food, and the full range of the Philippine shopping experience where you can do the groceries, barter for your local cell phone, sing some karaoke and get a massage from the famous blind masseurs/masseuses all in one short trip. Also within walking distance - the Metropolitan Museum of Manila, oceanfront restaurants at Harbor Square, and the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex where the professional Philippine baseball league plays and national martial arts competitions are held. Just on the opposite side of that is the Vito Cruz station of the Light Rail Transit (LRT), the city's commuter train system, which takes you clear across the entire megalopolis of Metro Manila, all of it above ground so that it offers the full panorama of one of the world's most vibrant capitals.

A 5-minute jeepney ride away, just past the Manila Zoo, is quaint Malate Church, the oldest church in Manila, surrounded by the Malate nightlife district, where you can sample local delicacies like barbecued chicken on a stick and crispy-fried pig ears at sidewalk carinderias over a six-pack of Red Horse beer in a bucket of ice served right on your table. Then hop over to Ka Freddie's, owned by legendary Pinoy rocker Freddie Aguilar, and check out his band Watawat, one of the baddest rock and roll outfits in the continent, among the many stellar acts jamming there regularly. If you're lucky, you may even get to hang out with Freddie himself. Just a bit further down the boulevard is the colonial-era walled city of Intramuros, historic Rizal Park, and the U.S. Embassy, just to name a few of the nearby attractions.

For those who are in search of the more modern shopping fare, a short taxi-ride to the south brings you to the bustling Mall of Asia, where every chain store in the world seems to occupy a spot and the best restaurants in the city face the bay, complete with Imax theatre and ice-skating rink. Take a romantic walk along the seawall before heading over to an oceanside discotheque and dance until dawn. Every Friday after sunset, you can view a fireworks display over the water. The most adventurous shoppers will relish the experience of two of Manila's biggest outdoor markets - Baclaran, just a five-minute F/X ride away, and Quiapo a few stops down on the LRT.

Legaspi Towers on the Boulevard - perfect for the adventurous travellers who want to be in the middle of things, and yet need a cozy, comfortable, safe, relatively quiet, romantic urban oasis.
