A favourite place amongst locals and travellers is the Harbor View Filipino Seafood Restaurant. This restaurant sits on a long jetty and offers irresistibly fresh seafood – the curried crab in particular is not to be missed.

If you're looking for a place to relax after a hard day of shopping, or simply a nice patch of grass for a picnic, Rizal Park is the perfect spot. Located in the heart of Manila city, Rizal Park is a popular tourist attraction for its historical significance, and also just a great place to unwind.

For the adventurous visitor, Taal Volcano is just 50 kilometres from Manila and perfect for a day trip. The volcano and surrounding lake offer some of the most stunning views in the Philippines and together are considered one of Manila's most prized tourist attractions. Be sure to pack your camera to capture this piece of natural beauty.
