For as far as you can see, there are men, women and children sleeping along the bay wall. Very sad and not scary but very sad. Hope things get better there soon!! Wonderful people.

The part of the bay I saw was filled with floating trash. I was not impressed. There must be a more picturesque part.

We missed the sunset, so we just used the venue to get back to our hotel in the evening. The walk wasn't nice at all, there are homeless people literally everywhere. It didn't feel safe at all and smellt terribly.

We sailed out of Manila on a cruise ship and the view of the city was great. It provided some great photo opportunities.

How far away is this bay from where the cruise ships port. Will there be taxis at the port to take us around town. Can we rent a car to drive ourselves around. Any suggestions would be helpful.
