On This Day . . .
We traveled for 3 days from Yap Island to Manila and arrived on February 28, 2014 for an overnight stay. On this day we took a tour to see the Modern Manila. Our first stop was outside the Coconut Palace. This building was made entirely of coconut materials. We then went to Ayala Museum where the history of Manila was portrayed. We then toured around the various districts in Manila seeing the many street vendors and observing the unique mode of transport call Jeepneys, which are Jeeps that were left after WWII and converted into small highly decorated buses. Our final stop was at the American War Memorial and Cemetery.
