Manila Bay Sunset Cruise via Sun Cruises


I have always wanted (but never tried) to have the Manila Bay sunset cruise. 
I've already tried the river cruise of Bohol, Bangkok, Thailand, Yangon, Myanmar and Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam but I have never tried the Manila Bay cruise. And finally, after the long wait, I was given the chance last May 19, 2014.

They say that having the yacht dinner cruise is a lot better. But for the meantime, this Manila Bay cruise would suffice.


With my friend, Genine Alyssa Pedreno, we experienced this cruise two days prior to her departure to Dubai where she will join her family for good.

The dinner was some sort of thanksgiving dinner for all her work for my travel, tour and hotel bookings both local and abroad.

The best time to have the dinner is 6:15 pm so that you can witness both the sunset and the Manila skyline. 


Once you are onboard the vessel and cruising the Manila Bay at night, you will feel that as if you are in Marina Bay in Singapore (almost).


Genine enjoyed the cruise!


But that is not the end of the story, after dinner, we went to SM MOA and agreed to ride as many rides as we can.


And the first one in the list is the - DROP TOWER!


Next in the list was her show - Bungee Fun!


Then, the Viking Ship. I hate this ride!


MOA Eye


And the last ride was the Wowowee Wheels


We definitely enjoyed and had fun  that night! =)

Thank you Genine for all your help sa travels ko. 
 Good Luck and Best Wishes sa Dubai!

  1. Great experience! Right? I loved Manila bay. It is my favorite place in the Philippines. I hope that someday I can buy a unit in this condo in Manila Bay and enjoy the scenery for the rest of my life.
