The plaza is right in front of the Malate church and bit further you have the Manilla bay. Beautiful fountains with statues, they are colourful at nights. Nice to see but be aware for pickpockets in the evening and night.

Nothing special during the day, but stunning at night. Worth a visit, just be careful and don't become a victim.

This review is quite late. Plaza Rajah Sulayman is a nice spot for people watching. The lights, water fountain and the surrounding trees give some feeling of relaxation after a tiring walk around the city.

A small plaza between the Aristrocrat restaurant and Max's. It is also situated right behind the Malate church. And in the middle there's a statue of Raja Sulayman. A lovely colourful fountain at night worth a photo or two. I wouldn't specifically go to this attraction other than saying if you close it's worth a quick look. (I would be... More

Best to come here at night to enjoy the dancing fountain. Also a good spot to watch the sunset along Roxas Boulevard.

After eating at Aristocrat Restaurant, I went to this small plaza and found some Filipinos resting. I heard that there are pickpockets here also. There a statue of Rajah Sulayman and a nice fountain. Right across is Roxas Boulevard
