Hi Chuck,

I'm not sure if you are familiar with the area, but you are a short taxi ride away from Mall of Asia.

I would highly recommend the entertainment/restaurant area overlooking Manila Bay.  Some great seafood restaurants, you can dine,  relax and watch the entertainment as well as a beautiful sunset, weather permitting of course. Some great bars there as well, mine is Paddis Point.

Hope you have a great stay, would love to join you for a refreshing beverage but we are heading to Boracay to escape  :D

Cheers
Brett.

Haha, thaks Gray Wolf  :D

We always stay at De Paris Resort, Station 2, nothing flash, right on the beach a few mins walk to D'Mall, great staff with a bar at the front so I can have a refreshing beverage and leisurely watch the world go by.

And this would have to be the best rooftop bar if not the only one on the beach, 360 degree views, lots of Aussies great meat pies and icy cold beers.  Big Steve manages the Department store, a fellow Aussie.

Worth a look if you manage to go there mate.

Cheers

We went there for our first honeymoon back in 1999, right after Christmas.  Things have changed a lot, but we plan to go back for a short visit during our next trip over.  I'll check out both the Paris Resort and Crafts of Boracay. 
Thanks!   :)
