How to Get There
Hi guys, welcome back!! Still in first day in Manila, after explore Manila Ocean Park, I went to Rizal Park which still in one area with Manila Ocean Park. Rizal Park located in Roxas Blvd Ermita, Barangay 666 Zone 72, which is only 1 kilometers from Manila Ocean Park so I walked passing through south road.
What to Do
Rizal Park is the must visit place when you came to Philippines. This park also called as The Pearl of The Orient Seas because it's one of historical place in Manila. This park was former colonial Spain and also the place where one of National hero, Dr Jose Rizal, were execution on 1896. That's why this park was built for remember his struggle during revolution against Spain colonialism.
Beside become one of tourism place, this park also become hangout location for Manila citizen. Not only elders, but also children, adults and teenagers are able to enjoy the beauty of this park.
Moreover, you can enjoy this park by using two-wheeled buggy or also known as Calessa which could become your tour guide. If you want to use this transportation, you should pay around PHP 1500. It's quite expensive but still worth for seeing the beauty of this park.
I really amazed by people in Manila which respect the heroes because they take care of this historical place. Look at the guards who protect this monument.
So many interesting tourism place in Manila and after that I'm going to Manila Baywalk for enjoying sunset :)
