Once known as the "Pearl of Asia" for its beauty, Manila was almost completely destroyed during WWII. Yet Manila still has its charm especially along Roxas Boulevard running along Manila Bay. Here, every evening, the miracle of Manila begins with its famous sunsets, turning Manila Bay and the city itself golden for a few moments. New developments on Manila Bay, such as Mall of Asia and the refurbishing of Manila Bay Walk promenade along Manila Bay gives residents and visitors a venue to take in the sunset, mingle and get some fresh air from the sea. Intramuros, the old walled Spanish-Colonial city is also another major attraction, as are the friendly and exhuberant Filipinos themselves.
