A long linear park just south of Manila’s Pasig River, Luneta (sometimes known as Rizal Park) is a beautiful green space of monuments, gardens, and museums, with a network of paved paths looping around it. A circuit of the park adds up to about 2 km (1.2 miles), but most runners don’t mind putting in a few loops of this scenic space. Enjoy the Rizal Monument and a cool Relief Map of the Philippine Islands. Access the park from behind the National Bank on Kalaw Ave.

For a longer run, continue 0.5 km south, past the U.S. Embassy, to the Manila Bay Walk, making for a 5 km+ loop and one of the longest continuous, nearly all off-road runs in Manila.
