Nearby attractions

Rizal Park (Luneta) in Manila
Attraction
0.52 km away

Built in 1902, Rizal Park was designed by American architect and urban planner Daniel Burnham. It was chosen to be the seat of American Government during the American Occupation. Its surrounding open spaces and gardens used to be a venue for the members of the elite class to socialize and host formal events. In 1913, Luneta was renamed Rizal Park, after the Philippines' National Hero and intellectual giant Dr. Jose Rizal. Rizal Park is now being revitalized as the largest urban park in Asia, with its historical monuments, gated ornamental gardens, family activities, and recurring free shows and events. The park has thirty (30) attractions and recreation areas, some of which have a minimal admission fee.

Manila Ocean Park
Attraction
0.53 km away

Manila Ocean Park is a nosedive into the Philippine waters: fascinating marine wildlife, but as complexly presented as in the sea. The main attraction is the Oceanarium (P400), which features sharks, stingrays, crocodiles, and other bizarre creatures endemic to the Philippines and Southeast Asia. The Oceanarium’s charm lies in its 25 meter (82 feet) underwater tunnel, where travelers can walk through, gaze up, and gawk at the underbellies of marine giants. Other attractions include the Jellies Exhibit (P150), Sea Lions Show and Habitat (P300), Trails to Antarctica (P300), Aquanaut Voyage (P995), Shark Encounter (P995), Fish Spa (P150), Glass Bottom Boat Ride (P150), Swimming and Fun (P200), Funtasea Games and Rides (P5/token), Birds of Prey (P150), Musical Fountain Show (P300), and the Back of the House (for field trips only).

Solidaridad Bookstore
Attraction
0.55 km away

Established in 1964 by F. Sionil Jose, the National Artist for Literature, Solidaridad Bookshop is the first air-conditioned bookstore in the Philippines. Back in the '60s, the bookstore used to be a cultural complex with an art gallery, and originally sold books from the US and UK. Today, Solidaridad remains a small yet potent bookstore. It sells various books in humanities, from the classics and the contemporary, the literary and the philosophical, to the economic and the political, all the way from the East to the West. The excellent collection of titles is moderated by the National Artist himself. Since 1964, Solidaridad Bookshop has withstood the test of time when all the establishments surrounding it have come and gone. Once called the “best little bookstore in Asia”, Solidaridad is one quick stop to grab a book for a long bus ride in the Philippines.
