Best ‘selfie’ spot in town
RESORTS World Manila (RWM) recently opened a lighted pedestrian walkway connecting the second level of the Maxims Hotel with Newport Mall.
Dubbed Lumina: walkway of lights, RWM’s installation is wired with at least 100,000 multi-colored LED bulbs that if stretched in a straight line is equivalent to approximately 10 kilometers, or the distance between RWM and Greenhills, making it arguably the brightest and longest lighted indoor corridor in the country.
“Lumina is our newest attraction at RWM and is perfect for the holiday season,” said Martin Paz, chief integrated marketing officer, RWM (Seen in photo).
Covering a distance of 110 meters between the hotel and the mall, the paved walkway showcases avant-garde landscapes such as green grass on patches of the ceiling, slanted wall panels creating a kinetic effect, and even water features in the works, making it one of the best selfie spots in town. New retail outlets on either side of Lumina are planned in the next six months, Paz said.
