OUTSIDE POINTS OF INTEREST
Not All In
ANILA is a very small part of the Philippines and no one should leave without several trips into the great provincial country. The limits of this work prevent descriptions of places outside the city, but a few of the most interesting and easily reached places are indicated herewith.
Cavite is reached by the government boat and a native ferry, which leave the landings below the custom house on the north bank of the river. Besides the historic interest of the town, which is as old as Manila, the navy yard and shops are worth seeing, and there are some churches that played a prominent part in the troublous times of 1898. The general appearance of the town is of the low built, Spanish type and is picturesque to a degree.
Mariveles and Corregidor are reached by a government launch which makes several trips per week. If the bay is on good behavior, the excursion is worth the day.Mariveles and Corregidor are reached by a government launch which makes several trips per week.
