みなさん、こんにちは!

オンライン英会話のパロッツ君です :-)

 

フィリピンの首都、マニラ。

日本の東京と同じように、国内外の各地から人や物が集まる

活気溢れる大都市です! 8-O

 

今回はHanna先生から、おすすめ観光スポットをご紹介します :-D

In today’s blog, we are going to take you to the heart of the Philippines, the beautiful city of Manila.

It might be notorious for its terrible traffic jam, but we know that there is more to Manila than the traffic. ;-)

 

 Manila1

 

Here is Teacher Hanna to introduce to us the different places in Manila where you can pay a visit, too. ;-)

 

 

 

 

Rizal Park, still widely known as Luneta Park is an atmospheric place to take a stroll, particularly late afternoon, early evening and on weekends. As the place where José Rizal was executed by the Spanish colonial authorities, it’s also of great historical significance.

At night, Rizal Park offers a Light and Sound Show that is absolutely free. It is a perfect place for families, friends, and uhm, lovers. :oops: Manila3

 

 

 

 Chinese Garden is also one of the attractions in Rizal Park which is situated in the heart of the city of Manila, Philippines. ;-)

Chinese Garden was built to promote friendship between China and the Philippines. Inside the garden is a lagoon and corridor designed like the Summer Palace in Beijing, China.

 

 

 

 

 

Teacher Hanna took these lovely pictures that made us want to visit the Chinese Garden, too! :-D Manila5

 After enjoying the Chinese Garden, Manila Bay is just along the same boulevard so it’s a must to visit this place.

Known for its view of majestic sunset, Manila Bay is also a popular destination for walkers, joggers and runners. The bay walk will give you the taste of the city and Philippine history all at the same time. :-D

Unfortunately, Teacher Hanna wasn’t able to witness the beautiful sunset that day because it was cloudy but she made sure she will still enjoy her visit. Look at her pictures! :-)

 

 

 

 

Manila8Address: Roxas Blvd, Malate, Manila, Metro Manila

 

 

 

She also went to the famous Venice Piazza Grand Canal Mall! :-D

Since this venue’s debut, it has instantly become the talk of the town because of its beautifully designed landscapes and colorful architecture that are absolutely Instagram-worthy! Inspired by one of Italy’s most romantic cities, Venice Grand Canal has elevated the shopping and lifestyle scene in the Philippine with its uniquely Italian sights and sounds, and dining experience. :-D

 Are you a fan of riding Ferris wheels?

Well, we got you covered! Discover the beauty of Manila in bird’s eye view by riding the famous MOA Eye – the tallest Ferris wheel in the Philippines! ;-)

 

 Manila12

 

Located beside the equally famous Manila Bay and inside the SM amusement park, the MOA Eye has been the center of attraction lately in the Mall of Asia. Rightly so because it dwarfs most of the other establishments in the SM bay area.

 

 

 

 

At night, this 180 feet tall giant attraction with its beautiful lighted Ferris wheel gondolas attracts mall goers and temps them to click that selfie button. 8-O Manila11

フィリピン旅行をご経験の方なら、既にマニラへのご滞在経験もあるかもしれませんね?

 

マニラは移り変わりの激しい大都会です。 8-O

一方、パロッツ君のあるリンガエンは、のんびりした田舎町です。 :-|

 

みなさんは都会派ですか?

それとも田舎派ですか?

それぞれ、良い点や悪い点が挙がるとは思いますが

日本とフィリピンでは、どのような違いがあると思いますか?

 

答えは、今日のレッスンで

パロッツ君の先生にお問合せください ;-)
