This hexagonal tower features three red-faced clocks and is beautifully illuminated at night. The bell is rung three times every hour. The Manila City Hall Clock Tower is the largest of its kind in the Philippines.

Dubbed as 'The Big Ben of the Philippines', the Clock Tower of Manila City Hall can serve as your landmark for other buildings in the surrounding area, including the Old Congress Building, which currently houses the National Museum of the Philippines. From there, you can also find the Department of Tourism and Museum of the Filipino People.
