#4 of 13 in Parks in Manila
With its paved, gently curving 2 km (1.2 mi) promenade lined by palm trees, Manila Bay makes a popular spot for strolling, relaxing, and people-watching. Stretching between the U.S. Embassy and the national cultural center, the area features many cafes and restaurants, plus live music performances complementing the sea views. Take a horse-drawn carriage ride, or simply cruise the area on foot. At night, the area buzzes with open-air cafes and itinerant artists, but you should watch your wallet. For Manila Bay and beyond, use our Manila trip maker tool to get the most from your Manila vacation.
