Philippine International Convention Center
Last Stop For DAY1 The Manila Film Center
number 5 sa Top 10 Scariest Spots in Metro Manila they said This Film Center must be one of the country’s biggest urban legends ever,Ang tahimik ng paligid inikot namen ang buong building pretty scary pag sumilip ka sa bintana sa likod my mga hagdan na tinakpan at hinarangan i have no idea anong meron dun trust me it's scary*- Legend has it that hundreds of workers were buried alive in the Parthenon-like Manila Film Center after the upper floor collapsed in 1981. The construction of Former First Lady Imelda Marcos’ “palace” was rushed to make it in time for the 1982 Manila International Film Festival. It is said that only a few workers were saved from the rubble and Marcos ordered cement to be poured over the bodies to meet her deadline. Some say that the ghosts of the workers haunt the building and still seek justice.. [from spot]
Manila Central Post Office
old musty but not falling apart ☺

designed by Filipino architect Juan Marcos de Guzman Arellano, the post office building was built in neoclassical architecture in 1926.It was severely damaged in World War II, and rebuilt in 1946 preserving most of its original design.
a lock box also gives you an additional measure of security, as you are not releasing your specific residence address.

Intra-muros, literally "within the walls", meaning within the wall enclosure of the city/fortress, describes its structure as it is surrounded by thick, high walls & moats. During the Spanish colonial period (1571-1898), Intramuros was Manila itself.
