ManilaTravelNews.com is a site providing tips and travel information for people who wish to explore the fascinating world of the Philippines from Manila, the capital city. Blog posts have recently been published which explain the governmental structure of this city, describe the importance of the Rizal monument, and suggest a list of exciting activities that one might participate in during a visit to Manila Bay.

In “What is the Structure of the Government of Manila, Philippines,” ManilaTravelNews.com explains that the larger area of Metro Manila has a center of government called the National Capital Region, or NCR. The NCR consists of 16 cities, each of which has its own government body made up of elected officials. Each city has a mayor, who serves a term of three years (and may be elected for up to three consecutive terms). The current mayor and vice mayor of Manila are, respectively, Alfredo Lim and Isko Moreno. The blog post further elaborates on the branches of government in the Philippines, and where the Manila government fits in.

José Rizal is arguably the most beloved national hero of the Philippines, according to the author of ManilaTravelNews.com. A writer, poet, and patriot, Rizal was executed by firing squad in 1896 at the age of 35—which many suggest was a primary impetus for the beginning of the Philippine Revolution that same year. ManilaTravelNews.com reminds potential travelers to visit the Rizal Monument, Manila’s most famous landmark, in “Manila’s Rizal Monument.” The monument itself was designed by Italian Carlos Nicoli as a constant reminder of Rizal’s brave dedication to peaceful reform during the difficult and dangerous period of Spanish colonization. The monument stands in Luneta Park, also called Rizal Park), and is a necessary stopping-place for tourists and visiting dignitaries alike.

The blog post “What Kinds of Activities Can You Participate In at Manila Bay” is a useful guide intended for anyone planning a trip to Manila who has never been there before. ManilaTravelNews.com suggests that visits include a stop at the Cultural Center, which seems to provide a huge amount of entertainment and culture in one centralized location. Available here are live performances of Philippine music, dance, and theater, as well as recreational activities and renowned local food. Boroclay Island is also presented as an option for sunbathing, banana boating, snorkeling, and other exciting shoreline activities. The post also suggests family activities that children will enjoy.
