“Good for the first five minutes and if your doing something”

Plaza Rajah Sulayman
Reviewed 30 May 2013

Its just the fountain named after a person with high profile, nothing to see much in it. This is a good hang out if your doing something like photo shoot. Most of the time this area is being used for programs, new year or christmas season or whatever program they can think off. It is good landmark in Manila but other than that, it's really a pity for this place. There are a lot of sidewalk vendors, sometimes there are beggars and "rugby boys", and at night it is a niche for prostitution, to think that this is just in front of Malate Church. Did not really enjoy this place whenever I walk by it.

Plaza Raja Sulayman is easy to find because it is situated in front of Malate Church and Roxas Boulevard, also near in Aristocrat Restaurant. There's nothing to see here aside from the statue. Some concerts and events are also held in here.

Built during the time of former Mayor Atienza, this was part of his program to beautify Manila. I must say i was wowed the first time i ever saw it. superb artistry on the sculpture and i remember the fountain being a musical fountain the first time i saw it. being an avid walker, i appreciated this addition to the manila baywalk. the last time i saw it was in october. the fountain wasn't on and it was a bit dimmer with lots of people around, some appear to be permanently stationed there. not as sparkly as when i first saw it, but the rajah is still as imposing, looking out into the bay and appears to still be guarding it.

it's a good place to walk around and sit by the fountain and watch the sunset and sunrise. but at njght time it become a little scary because of beggars around and sometimes snatcher.
in short, the place is ok if there are enough light and security guard around and no beggars . it's a park you are suppose to feel relax not scare.

I ended my visit to the National Museum of the Philippines and walk around Luneta Park by dropping by Plaza Rajah Sulayman. I first had dinner at Aristocrat and then decided to walk around the area before heading home. It was a good way to end my day, after having a heavy meal.

I remember that a few years back, though, the fountain had more lights in it with matching classical music in the background. During my last visit the facility was not working. Still, it's a good place to feel the sea breeze as it faces the Manila Bay with just a pedestrian lane away.

If you walk towards the other side, you will get to see the Malate Church.
