  • Went there on early Dec. So many people but still manage to take nice picture. They have a nice Christmas tree & water fountain show with Christmas song as the background song. Recommended to go here just for strolling if you are first time in Manila. Suitable time to visit this place is in the evening.
  • Forever a nice place for a morning stroll, while giving you take the time to look back at Philippine history. I suggest you take a guided tour if you're unfamiliar about the important stuff around the park, which are often gone unnoticed. I had wonderful PH history teachers and I still remember the significant landmarks only found here. Enjoy!
