Manila Bay’s popular sunset, one of the Philippine capital’s charms, seemed to have caught the attention of United States President Barack Obama during his visit here for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) summit.

Pete Souza, Chief Official White House photographer, posted a photo of Obama on Instagram watching the stunning sunset view of Manila Bay.

“Watching the sunset in Manila,” the caption read.
