Major roads in Metro Manila

Metro Manila has a very extensive roadway system connecting the cities and municipalities of the metropolis and its surrounding provinces. The major roadways are the ten radial roads, braching from the capital city of Manila, and the five circumferential roads, which form semicircles around the city of Manila. It should be known that the Radial and Circumferential roads are not 'existing roads', per segment, but are labels that connect existing roads, so that they serve as guides. Some of the roads in Metro Manila are not yet paid to the government.

Begins as Del Pan in San Nicolas district. Del Pan becomes Bonifacio Drive after crossing the Pasig River. Bonifacio Drive is the major road of the Manila South Harbor, and of Intramuros, the walled city. It then continues on as President Manuel Roxas Boulevard, formerly known as Admiral Dewey Boulevard, which is famous for its grand hotels, exquisite yacht clubs, embassies, and most of all, the famed Manila sunset. The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (Central Bank of the Philippines in English), Museo Pambata (Children's Museum in English), Manila Yacht Club, the Embassy of the United States of America, and various seaside restaurants are on this road. The said boulevard has been the target of the beautification project of Manila mayor Lito Atienza. R-1 then continues to skirt the Manila bay coastline of the cities of Pasay, Parañaque, and Las Pinas as the Manila-Cavite Expressway (formerly called Coastal Road and General Emilio Aguinaldo Highway). R-1 is the main road of the Ermita district of Manila, and connects it with Cavite province. In Cavite, it passes through Bacoor, Imus, Dasmarinas, Silang, and Tagaytay City. Its extension ends in Talisay, Batangas (in front and north of Taal Lake). The road has many zigzags.

Commences at the Manila City Hall in Intramuros as Antonio Villegas Road (Arroceros), passing through the Ermita and Malate districts. LRT-1 is built on this road. Taft Avenue houses many government offices, the Manila campus of the University of the Philippines (University of the Philippines, Manila), and the Philippine General Hospital. It is part of the Maharlika Highway. Also located on Taft Avenue are the Philippine Women's University, Philippine Christian University, and De La Salle University-Manila. R-2 continues on to Pasay City. Its major attraction in Pasay City is the Cartimar Pet Market, the hangout of many pet lovers. After crossing EDSA (C-4), it continues on as President Elpidio Quirino Highway, passing through Parañaque and Las Piñas, on to Bacoor town of Cavite, where it ends at R-1. R-2 is the main road of the Malate district of Manila, and connects it with Cavite province.
