Manila Bay has one of the most beautiful sunset I have seen. I can not forget that I used to visit this place (along Roxas Boulevard) when we were kids and have always enjoyed it.

But when I already had enough time browsing the net, I began to appreciate the value of this part of Manila. This is a treasure that was under-appreciated by the... More
