This area is very busy, so Traffic specially if weekdays. You can find all kinds of people here. So be careful. in front of it is the City Hall, and on the sides are the shopping malls.

This plaza never seems to run out of people. Almost everybody stays here to just unwind or meet-up with friends. I just wish there were more seats and better attractions for people here.

Relaxing venue in the center of the city; or shop til you drop then come to rest here sipping your coconut juice while enjoying the breeze of the wind. A small escapade from the busy-ness of the streets around.

Just take a pic of it then go. Nothing much to do there. It's just a small vacant land in the middle of the city with nothing but shrubs. Take a pic still, just as a proof.

The plaza was currently decorated with christmas lights and colorful ornaments. during my 3 day stay it was sealed off from the public. I wonder if its only temporary. there is a color light dancing fountain at northern end. it add a touch of liveliness at night!
