We had dinner at La Fiesta – the largest Filipino buffet in Manila. They had a wide array of delicious food – from one day old chickens, to sisig (my fav), adobo pusit, sushi, chocolate pizza…they had it all! What was also great about La Fiesta was the live entertainment! I was volunteered to participate in one of the most popular and well-known traditional dance called tinikling. It involves two people beating, tapping, and sliding bamboo poles on the ground and against each other in coordination with one or more dancers who step over and in between the poles in a dance. It’s pretty easy to keep up during the beginning but once the music starts kicking in – you better start moving those legs (in, in, out!).
The MOA Eye (Mall of Asia Eye)
The biggest Ferris Wheel in the Philippines, which measures 180 ft. tall with 36 air-conditioned gondola, each capable of seating up to six people. The MOA Eye is located at San Miguel Bay City breakwaters of Manila Bay in the SM Mall of Asia amusement complex.
Tagaytay and a view of Taal Lake
Tagaytay is one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations because of its outstanding scenery and cooler climate provided by its high altitude. Tagaytay overlooks Taal Lake in Batangas and provides one of the iconic views of the Philippines, the view of Taal Volcano Island in the middle of the lake, viewable from several vantage points in the city.
Sunsets over Manila Bay are among the most beautiful and colorful that one will ever see when visiting the Philippine capital city of Manila. Manila Bay harbor serves the port of Manila. The bay is considered to be one of the best natural harbors in Southeast Asia and one of the finest in the world.
