Well yes it was interesting to learn about Jose Rizal and his important role in filipino history and yes it was nice to find out that the city has preserved some of its old charm, but if thats one of the most recommended sites in this 14 million metropolis, then well... its far from other Asian capitals such as Singapore,...

We enjoyed this spot and the history that went with it, we are not in another part of the Philippines where history does not appear to figure, so am glad we found out more when we had the chance.

Great way to spend a bit of your afternoon. Lots of vendors nearby and other things to see and do. Its too bad some developer is building a hi-rise where it ruins the views.
