Whip out your cameras and don’t miss capturing the night splendors of Manila City!
The city of Manila may seem chaotic during the day, but by the time the hustle dies down and the sun sets by the horizon, bright lights bring the city to life like a whole new world.
Undoubtedly, one couldn’t help falling in love with the city. With Manila Night Walk, a heritage and photo walk at night, one can enjoy touring and snapping some Instagram-worthy shots of the historical city. The Manila Night Walk is happening on January 4, Saturday.
There had been many misconceptions of the city being unsafe for citizens, especially at night. But since the local administration has rehabilitated many areas and refurbished the dying lampposts in the streets, the city has become livelier and brighter during nighttime that one cannot simply miss the scenic views.

The Manila Night Walk will start at 5 PM, at sunset and will follow an itinerary. Starting at San Sebastian Church, the tour will then proceed to the ancestral houses of Bilibid Viejo, Hidalgo and Calle San Sebastian. What’s memorable here, is that the cobbled streets and the appearance horse-drawn carriages will make one feel as if they have traveled back in time.

By dusk, the group will be at the Manila City Hall, National Museum, and the revamped Gomburza Monument. Participants can fully enjoy night photography around Intramuros, Jones Bridge, and Sta. Cruz Church. The best way to cap off the tour is to have a refreshing drink at 1919 Grand Cafe or Fred's Revolution.
