MY PHILIPPINES: Harbor Square, Manila

Ask any photography enthusiast in Manila where is the best place to catch a sunset or for practicing your night photography skills and 8 out of ten will say “Manila Harbor Square."

You’d be surprised that as early as 4pm, a line of tripod goes as far as your eyes can see. We missed out on the sunset this time though because of the traffic our dear Manila is also famous for but if I may say so myself, we still got pretty good shots.

And if you get hungry anytime during the shoot or you wanna reward yourself after getting perfect exposure, there are also loads of restaurants and coffee shops in the area. Below is the list for some of them.

HOW TO GET THERE: Harbor Square is in Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City near the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP).  The easiest although not necessarily fastest way to get there is by a cab, most drivers know where it is.  you can also take the LRT line 1 and get off at Vito Cruz Station, from there just ask around for jeepneys going to CCP.
