Take a Look Inside Manila Bulletin's Newsworthy Office

By Marga Salvador on March 3, 2016

First incorporated in 1900, Manila Bulletin is 116 years old making it the oldest newspaper published in the country. The broadsheet has kept with the times, keeping Filipinos up to date and in the know. With a century old company, some people have got to wonder what the MB office looks like. Is it a photo straight out of Noli Me Tangere? Surprisingly, no.

The Manila Bulletin office is appropriately located in Intramuros, Manila. From the outside, it's quite the unsuspecting building; stark but not extraordinary.
