MANILA, Philippines — City of Dreams Manila, aiming to become the premier leisure and entertainment destination in the country and within the region, officially became a reality Monday when it formally opened its doors to the public.

City of Dreams Manila is a billion-dollar integrated gaming and entertainment resort strategically located at the gateway of Manila’s Entertainment City.
