best place to see the sun set from metropolis

The best place to see the sun set from metropolis.. There a lot of people who hang out here or do walking and jogging too. Very romantic during the sunset time..

When you look at the Sunset, its best when you go at Manila Bay to watch the sun sets before evening

Manila bay, or Manila de bay, is an excellent getaway from the noisy, busy, and city of manila. Its nice to visit here from 4 pm onwards because yoh will witness the hilarious sunset. At night, it will somehow gives you a breath of air.

If you want a view of a nice sunset without leaving the city, Manila Bay would always be a great choice. You might want to stay at some of the hotels along Manila Bay if you have the time and the budget. The view from the room facing the bay is blissful.

Once upon a time Manila Bay was beautiful. Then it became so full of rubbish the local homeless can actually walk over it like its earth and collect items to resell. It is a dangerous area. I have lived here long enough to give a sensible and honest account. Visit Mall of Asia, but don't go any further - the... More

I visited during a two night stop over before travelling back to the UK. From a distance it looked very nice and of course the sea was beautiful and the sunset amazing.

I never went here in the evening so I can't say how beautiful the sunset might look. I really don't recommend anyone to be out there at night. During the daytime, there are a lot of homeless people living by the bay. It breaks my heart to see all of this so I try to stay away from the area... More

Manila bay has a beautiful view, with the ferris wheel and bumper car and breeze: very tumblresque. Sad to hear that this is reclaimed land though, if not it would be so much more ideal.
