This 10-kilometer stretch of bayfront boulevard is home to a variety of food stalls, handicraft shops and benches to accommodate a most pleasurable view of Manila’s Sunset Boulevard. Roxas Boulevard is also home to two of the country’s finest cultural and arts shacks, the Cultural Center of the Philippines and the Aliw Theatre. A plethora of restaurants and bars adorn the stretch and the adjacent Macapagal Avenue.
If you’re feeling extra romantic, take a ferry ride at sunset at the Manila Bay and be mesmerized as the sun settles down its vast waters. Small ferries go ’round the bay for 30 minutes, taking passengers early in the morning and at dusk. While the vessels are a bit old, the P30-ride provides a closer, more expansive vista of the bay.
Found along the streets of Gen. Luna and Padre Faura in Paco, this dome-shaped church is a favorite venue for intimate weddings, with its capacity of 150 persons max.
