Manila was once known as the "Pearl of Asia" for its beauty, but was almost completely flattened and destroyed by bombing during WWII. Yet Manila still has a bit of charm intact - especially along Manila Bay. Here, every evening, Manila comes alive with its famous sunsets, turning Manila Bay and the city itself golden for a few moments. 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.
