Here's our Manila icons!
Erected on 1578, this is actually the sixth version of the cathedral. After countless natural disasters plus the Second World War, the Manila Cathedral still stands as the ecclesiastical seat of the Roman Catholic Church in the Philippines.
Manila Central Post Office
The grandest of all neo-classical buildings in the entire metro. Enough said.
Manila's most iconic skyscraper. Every other Makati skyscraper pales in comparison with this edgy building. If it's only a supertall, it would have been more iconic.
Before the Esplanade, this was Southeast Asia's most beautiful culture and arts center. Modernism at its finest. When I say modern, i didn't mean futuristic, or space age-y.
It's like, "What is Manila without Rizal Monument?!"
The Greatest Malay the world had produced (according to Dr. Mahatir Mohammad, BTW)and his century-old monument is definitely M-A-N-I-L-A.
take your pick!
