The Philippines is hosting the ASEAN Summit once again and delegates from neighbouring Asian countries will be attending the semi-annual event.  ASEAN dignitaries can make the most out of their visit in the country by exploring places within the city which they can easily travel.  

Here are a few things that ASEAN attendees can do around Metro Manila and prove that the city, though old, has beautiful things to offer: 

Sunset at Manila Bay

End the day and appreciate the calming colors of the sunset while lounging at Manila bay, the same thing former US president Barack Obama enjoyed during his visit in the country.
