Without a Helicopter, I can't think of anywhere you can get the photo you want.

Manila Diamond Hotel has a bar on one of its highest floor. I love the view from there.

As Kegler suggests, some hotels have rooftop bars or swimming pools. One of my favourite views of the city are from the rooftop bar of Nichols Hotel near the airport, particularly as the sun is going down. Do some research, find a hotel with a good rooftop bar, enjoy a San Miguel and the views

You could try:

Skye Bar

Skydeck Bar Bayleaf

thebayleaf.com.ph/restaurants/sky-deck-view-…

Or the new tallest building in the Philippines called the Gramercy. Check if the restaurants are opened there yet.

the best is when you are in your plane arriving into Manila. Take pictures during the approach for landing. Its a long, descent before landing, all overlooking the whole Metropolis.

..if you mean the historical part of Manila..then the Bayleaf rooftop. Ive been there. the energy is electric. otherwise, go to any podium level of any high rise condominium in Makati, Ortigas. I have taken breath taking city views from the following buidings--Legaspi Towers on Roxas Blvd., Pioneer Highlands globe Telecom Building on Pioneer Street Mandaluyong. also, you can get amazing city views from the top floors of mall parking structures in the Philippines--for example--Robinsons Place Manila, the Shangrila Mall in Ortigas .
