FLOWER DELIVERY TO MANILA
Of the approximately 12-million inhabitants of the Philippines, the capital city of Manila is home to more than 1.6-million. With a long and turbulent history that was first recorded in the 10th-century, the city has absorbed a number of cultural influences. The Laguna Copperplate inscription calls it a Malay kingdom, but it was later invaded by Brunei and later still by the Spanish Conquistadors. Insurrections by the Chinese, as well as a British occupation have also left their marks.
Like the bordering cities of Navotas and Caloocan and, in fact, most of the Philippines, Manila is a heavily polluted city, but projects are underway to correct this. Thanks to some dedicated rehabilitation efforts, trees, plants and flowers now line the banks of Manila’s waterways. Although most residents of Manila follow the Christian faith the city has, by its history, learnt tolerance for differing beliefs. Besides the Manila Cathedral, the city boasts three other basilicas in this Roman Catholic archdiocese. As the country’s cultural centre, the arts and entertainment are also well provided for.
