  2. I've been there three years ago. I couldn't believe that we had such amazing buildings. I am really happy to see that buildings such as that is being preserved well. As for museums, it's good to know that people are starting to be more and more interested with nerdy stuff and that the government has appropriated much budget for them. The sad part of this is that it is only in Manila where culture and history are very much prioritized. I wish they could do the same in other provinces.

    1. I believe they have province counterparts, it's just that it's not as grand in the centric. :) And there are new opening museums this month. :)
