The best time to watch the Manila Bay sunset is usually during the first week of March. In this period, the cool winds bid farewell to Manila as we welcome the start of summer. As the sun sets in Manila Bay, you'll notice that the sun is fully round and, often, it paints the sky with a reddish or orange hue.
You won't notice the traffic along Edsa and Mall of Asia because you will surely sing karaoke during the jeep ride. What a cool idea! If you can assemble 20 of your friends for this Jeepney tour, you can just imagine the karaoke riot that will happen onboard the jeep.
The seats are comfortable but with narrow leg room. Each row of seats can accommodate 4 people.
You'll arrive at your destination just before the M/V Spirit of Manila departs at 5.30pm. You can choose to just go directly to Harbour Square and get a ticket with Prestige Cruises. But I think it is much cooler to sing karaoke on the jeep.
Don't forget to take an awesome family shot with the sunset! (How I wish the girl in the background was sensitive enough to move out of the shot. Oh well...)
Also, remember to take an awesome shot of the Roxas Boulevard Skyline while wearing the captain's hat.
The cruise usually lasts for 1 hour and 15 minutes. It slowly glides alongside the Manila Baywalk and turns around near the Manila Ocean Park. On the way back to Harbour Square, you'll surely dance the night away to the tunes of Dancing Queen and Macarena.
To end the night, you'll be treated to another round of karaoke onboard the Jeepney Tour.
