One should stop and stare when the sun sets. It is free and beautiful. It's God's masterpiece, just like you and me. Roxas Boulevard has the best sunset in the world.

Roxas Blvd runs along the waterfront in Manila, and is ok for a stroll in evening, however if you are in a car or taxi try to avoid this road as traffic jams are common leaving you sat still whilst the meter rises.
if traveling from the airport to Malate or Ermita, the taxi will often ask if you wish to use the Skyway, to avoid Roxas Blvd traffic. Often worth paying the tolls to make a saving in time!

Roxas (pronounced Rohas) is one of the city's main thoroughfares, and as such, it suffers from very heavy traffic. During morning or evening rush hour it can take as much as two hours to drive along its 10 km or so.

Having said that, there isn't really any reason to do so. Manila Bay must have once been beautiful, but is now badly polluted and the boulevard is now lined by semi-abandoned building, cheap hotels, and fast-food places.

All in all, this isn't really a tourist attraction.

Roxas Boulevard is a waterfront promenade in Manila running parallel to Manila Bay. This is a well recognised landmark in the Philippines with vendors located along the promenade, lined with coconut trees and a great place to watch sunsets over Manila Bay. You will see many having afternoon walks along this strip.

Unfortunately along this 8 lane highway the traffic is horrendous, and I agree with others that the boulevard not reaching its potential.It could offer so much. It fronts the polluted Manila Bay and you will experience the poverty as homeless and beggars frequent the area.

This area is the location of some nice hotels and the iconic Filipino restaurant The Aristocrat.
