How to Get to Manila City Hall: Map, Commute, Directions
A missing piece of directions to the Philippine capital city: Manila
Manila City Hall is located on Burgos Avenue, where it connects to Taft Venue and near Liwasang Bonifacio, Post Office Building, Mehan Garden, Arrocerros Park, and SM City Manila (behind) and across Intramuros (side of Pamantasang Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM)) and (quite a) walking distance to Rizal Park and Manila Ocean Park.
In Manila City Hall, you can get cedula (community tax certificates), land registration, police clearance, attend court hearings (manila regional trial courts) or even analyze
the blown out picture of Jose Rizal's execution at Bagumbayan (now Luneta)
