You’ve heard about it, you’ve probably seen the structure… and, heck, you’ve most probably seen the spectacular video ad (more than a couple of times) that has bombarded the television airwaves as of late.
However way you’ve come to know about the City of Dreams Manila, it is always spoken in high regard and paired with a good number of positive exclamations and praises.
But nothing you’ve only heard through stories and hearsay or seen on television and from afar could actually prepare you for the awe that comes once you’ve had the opportunity to really be inside the astonishing establishment and immerse yourself in its majestic design, architecture and features.
The City of Dreams Manila is more than just a casino contrary to how some people (especially those who haven’t really been there) would describe the place. Its incredible and numerous attractions truly make the City of Dreams Manila a place where DREAMS become reality.
I was able to attend the grand opening of this amazing establishment and upon touring the premises, it just completely blew me away and exceeded all my expectations.
