Manila, Philippines – City of the Future

Considered the “Pearl of the Orient” at the time of Spanish colonial rule, Manila today shows a less friendly face. The city is located on the west coast of the island of Luzon and is surrounded by fertile plains. It extends on both sides of the Pasig River, a navigable waterway that connects Laguna de Bay to the large natural harbor of Manila Bay and South China Sea delta.
