If Rizal Park has the Chinese Gardens, Fort Santiago in Intramuros has the Bamboo Gardens. It features different species of bamboo and offers a tranquil place to spend the afternoon.
What I like about visiting our historical parks is that they usually have a garden in the area. I specially love it when it’s a Japanese-inspired garden when it gives you the look and feel of a Zen Garden.
If ever you’ll visit Fort Santiago, don’t forget to spend some time at the Bamboo Gardens and reflect on some of the things that bother you. I’m sure, you’ll feel relax and rejuvenated after spending some time here.
