The Manila of yesteryears have now expanded to become Metro Manila and now Mega Manila (to include the neighboring regions and provinces). Today, Metro Manila alone, consisting of 16 LGUs, has a population of 12 million people. Indeed, Metro Manila is bursting with action every day.
Manila is home to Malacanang Palace, the seat of government. The House of Representatives is in Quezon City, while the Senate is based in Pasay City. Makati is the nation’s financial capital where the movers and shakers of Philippine economy hold court. The country’s major gateway, the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, in Paranaque City welcome over 30 million passengers yearly.
But the icons of Manila remain alive today. The Philippine jeepney and calesa, the old charm of Quiapo and Divisoria, the beautiful sunset of Manila Bay, the historic Fort Santiago in Intramuros, and the imposing monument of Dr. Jose Rizal, in Luneta.
Fiesta Souvenirs truly capture the history and beauty and the hustle and bustle of Manila!
