Pasay City is the first thing you see once you step off the plane, as the Ninoy Aquino International Airport is located here. But more than just the airport, Pasay is also a great place to take in some culture and go shopping. A bustling commercial city just south of the capital, Pasay offers a wide range of entertainment and tourist activities. The pleasant, 7.6 km (4.7 mi) long waterfront boulevard facing Manila Bay is lined with greenery and bustles with restaurants, coffee shops, and clubs. Known as a hub for tourism, there are many things to do in Pasay thanks to an abundance of malls, cinemas, and theme parks. The city's museums aim to preserve the local cultural heritage, but it's the vice-president’s octagonal palace that stands out, built entirely of coconut trees using traditional methods. An amusement park with a huge water section provides a refreshing escape during hot days. Pasay is in Metro Manila.
