I visited this sight on a business trip to Manila. Check with your hotel about cost of admission, times, and how to get their. Used as a guest house for official visitors to the Phillapines, it is said to be made entirely out of products of the cocanut palm. Brings back memories of the days of Imelda Marcos and her geusts such as Muammar al-Gaddafi, Brooke Shields and George Hamilton. Definitely weird but worth a visit when in Manila.
It's one of Manila's scenic spots on the internet, so I went to see it. Opposite the Manila International Convention Center and near the Manila Cultural Center, there are some houses built with coconut trunks. It's not very big. It's because they are built with coconut trunks that they become tourist attractions. I arrived at 2 p.m., closed the door and asked the security guards through the door. Can I swim, except for that? I'm sorry, I can't hear anything else clearly. I just looked outside and took a picture. I didn't know where to go before I went to see it.
After many visits to the Philippines, Manila's scenic spots have been almost all visited, along Manila Bay to the coconut uterus, close to the cultural center, 100 pesos ticket, including guides, language only in English. At that time, no one came to visit, so the tour guide was a one-to-one service, while explaining and enthusiastically helping me take photos, very nice. The coconut uterus was built with coconut trunks, coconuts and leaves as raw materials in 1978, invested by 37 million pesos during Marcos'reign. However, because of its high cost and luxury, it has not actually been inhabited by politicians.

Every time it strikes the time, visitors can hear the crisp sound of tapping coconut shells.

Including the chandelier inside what is also made of materials related to leaves, more novel.
