Philippine government efforts to preserve historic Manila

Years of decay and neglect have left the city of Manila a shadow of what it once was and growing urbanisation, pollution, and a reputation for violence have pushed many away.
But there have been efforts to revitalise the city and preserve its historic buildings.

Al Jazeera’s Jamela Alindogan reports from Manila.

    Just the result of years upon years of corruption. Won't change.

    So beautiful European Latin architecture built by the Spaniards, the Spanish Empire, once the most powerful of the world. Phillipinos should be proud of it as Spanish created the Phillipines and made it, the Pearl of the Orient

    Manila is much more better now. This video is recorded maybe a year ago or before this pandemic.

    I'm sorry, but GOD promised "Israel" to the jewish people (In the Bible & Torah) and "Al-Aqsa Mosque" (Islam) is a place in heaven and not in Jerusalem! Jerusalem don't mentioned even once in the book of Islam (The Quran) Jerusalem belongs to the jews and the "third temple" should be build in the "temple mount" in Jerusalem, Israel….

    A lot of REHABILITATION PROJECTS are undergoing at this moment. Beautiful parks, underground passages now seemed to be a mini art museums, street lightning, slum area turned into a beach, smelly canals now are cleaned and green. A lot more will come because of the young former actor but Harvard Educated Isko Moreno Domagoso or populary known as Yorme.

    been to manila once, all i saw was poverty, filth noise. You can't find a single park that is clean and doesn't smell. A lot of work needs to be done to change Manila. Yes the city can do, but majority of the change needs to start with the people living within the city.
