MALACANANG PALACE
 This is where the current Philippine president during his/her term. Thepalace is located along the north bank of the Pasig River in Manila. The
name came from a Tagalog phrase, “may lakan diyan,” which means “arich man lives there”. But the Spaniards said that the name came from “mama lakaya”, which can be translated as “the fisherm
en who laid their
catch there”.
 Inside the complex of Malacanang Palace, you will find Bonifacio Hall. It isthe Premier Guest house used by President Ferdinand Marcos, which laterbecame the office of President Corazon Aquino. During the leadership of President Joseph Ejercito Estrada, this hall was again used as his residence. Aside from Bonifacio Hall, other places that you can see in Malacanang are
