See the same sunset from a totally different light.
I saw it transform from a desolate hub of muggers and prostitutes to the family friendly lollipop lighted tourist destination. As a child, you grow up hearing of how gorgeous the sunset is in Manila but I never really noticed until recently. I used to pass by Manila bay almost every single day when I was still finishing my degree but sometimes you need to get to see a place with your feet literally off the ground.
On a whim, we decided to board a ferry that cruises along the coast of Manila which supposedly is the best natural harbor in East Asia. They say that the Manila Bay Sunset is at its best during the month of March when the sun is at it’s roundest and at its best color. I remember the day being pretty clear and the wind less humid than it usually is. And as we departed the docks and moved closer to the setting sun, I understood better why the sunsets here are considered to be legendary. The tickets cost around 6USD, 11USD if served with dinner. Passengers can opt to stay upstairs where the tables and chairs are or go to the lower level where it is more relaxed and cozy. The history of Manila is intimately tied to these waters, during the Spanish occupation; it was here where the decisive battle was either won by the Americans some historians say the great battle was a sham and staged along with the aid of the Spanish Regime.
While inching its way through the waters at sunset we paid not attention to the romantic music being played as we got acquainted with the sea and it’s beauty. I didn’t quite appreciate the theme song of the “Love Boat” TV series as it played but it made for a good laugh. When the evening dragged on, three musicians took their place and sang tunes for the passengers to sing and dance along to. We chose instead to just head downstairs where we could enjoy the coastline better without the tacky numbers of the hosts. At a distance, two separate fire works displays could be seen. It made the evening more romantic as we saw the city lights come alive while we enjoyed the gentle swaying of the sea.
