Manila Baywalk Sunset

Manila Baywalk is a bit rundown nowadays, but the world-famous sunset (allegedly the best among the world’s cities according to Lonely Planet’s ‘The Cities Book’ due to the air pollution that enhances the display)–is the daily spectacle that redeems the messy urban sprawl of all its noise, sleaze and taxi drivers from hell. On Sundays, it’s a leisurely place to seek respite, basking in the orange haze of nature’s light show with peanuts and fishballs for popcorn. Just make sure to be extra careful after sundown when shadier characters begin their prowl. At night, the bright fountain crowning Liwasang Rajah Sulayman across Malate Church stages a lively performance of its own.

To get to Baywalk, go down Quirino LRT Station and stroll down San Andres St. (or through Remedios Circle to check out Malate nightlife before it awakens) until you reach Roxas Boulevard, lined with multicolored lamp posts.
