Alternative Routes To MOA Or Mall Of Asia From Quezon City

  • 30 Dec 2010
  • Lag alag


  • It seems that going to Mall Of Asia from north of Metro Manila via EDSA is the best way to take. It's just one continues direction without any turns. Without even changing road. But take note that there are times that this main thoroughfare is heavily congested. Bumper to bumper traffic suddenly appears making your travel a bit of annoying. Alternative routes and directions is very helpful at all times. So here are other options to take in going to Mall Of Asia as well as the Cultural Center of the Philippines Complex if you really need to take the car with you. Try to drive along these routes to get yourself familiar with them.

    You can take Quezon Avenue all the way to Quiapo via Espana. Then continue driving up to Lawton, crossing Pasig River via Quezon Bridge. Do not use this route every Friday. Stay to the middle of the road and continue driving. For your information, Quezon Boulevard does't end in Quiapo. It's still Quezon Boulevard you're driving along in front of Manila Post Office in Lawton. The road name only changed the moment it bends to the left. It becomes Padre Burgos Street and it runs parallel to the wall of Intramuros up to Roxas Boulevard. At this point you're on Padre Burgos Street even without changing the road that you're taking. Only name of the road has changed. Upon approach of the first stop light on Padre Burgos, change lane from middle to the right to avoid getting onto the Lagusnilad underpass, which will take you to Taft, and that's wrong way. You must get to Roxas Boulevard. So after crossing the stop light, you must take the road to the right of Lagusnilad underpass. Okay here's another information. That road with stop light intersecting Padre Burgos, its name is Victoria to your right, going to an entrance of Intramuros that is nearer to Mapua Institute of Technology, Lyceum of the Philippines, Manila High School and Manila Bulletin. To your left is Conception Street, the side where Manila City Hall is located. Next to Manila City Hall is SM City Manila. You can get to Manila City Hall or SM City Manila from that route by first turning right onto Victoria and then make a U-Turn back toward Padre Burgos and cross Padre Burgos to get to opposite street of Concepcion. From Concepcion Street, you have the options to get to Manila City Hall or SM City Manila.

    Now back to our route to MOA or Mall Of Asia via Cultural Center of the Philippines Complex. As I've mentioned, you must stay to the right of Padre Burgos after crossing Victoria Street to avoid getting onto Lagusnilad underpass. Once you passed that junction, stay to the middle of Padre Burgos Street. As you'll notice Padre Burgos bends to the right at this point. And then there's the second stop light. That road that runs perpendicurlly to the left of Padre Burgos is Finance Road. After that road is the third stop light of Padre Burgos, and that intersection is General Luna Street, the route and direction to Intramuros Entrance nearer to Pamantasan Ng Maynila or PLM, Department of Labor, San Agustin Church, Knight of Columbus, Casa Manila Patio, Father Blanco's Garden and Manila Cathedral. The moment you enter Intramuros, General Luna Street will take you to San Agustin Church and Manila Cathedral. Also, right before you enter Intramuros via General Luna Street is the area they called Round Table - a landmark that now never exist I think.

    After General Luna Street, the fourth stop light is Palacio Street. You need to stay to the left of Padre Burgos Street after crossing Palacio Street in preparation for turning left on Roxas Boulevard. You're now traversing along the edge of Luneta or Rizal Park. If you're going to Manila Ocean Park and Quirino Grandstand, stay to the middle of Padre Burgos and cross Roxas Boulevard. After crossing Roxas Boulevard, the road becomes Katigbak Drive and Quirino Grandstand will be visible after Katigbak Drive turn left. Manila Ocean Park is at the back of Quirino Grandstand. You can park your car in front of Quirino Grandstand.

    Back to topic. Turn left on Roxas Boulevard from Padre Burgos Street and stay to the middle. Drive all the way, cross intersections of U.N. Avenue, Padre Faura, Pedro Gil and Quirino Avenue. After crossing Quirino Avenue, stay to the right in preparation for turning right onto Cultural Center of the Philippines Complex.

    After Quirino Avenue to your right is the Manila Yatch Club followed by Philippine Navy Headquarters and then the Cultural Center of the Philippines or CCP Complex. Turn right onto the next street after the Philippine Navy Headquarters. That street is Pedro Bukaneg. It's opposite street to the left is Pablo Ocampo Street. From Bukaneg Street, turn left on Magdalena Jalandoni and drive all the way crossing Vicente Sotto Street where the Star City is located to the left and Gil Puyat Avenue where the World Trade Center is located. Note: There are times Magdalena Jalandoni is closed from Bukaneg. If that's the case, go straight on Padre Bukaneg then turn left on the next corner. This is where Tanghalang Francisco Balagtas or Folk Arts Theater is located, the building you see in front of you before you turn left. Turn left on Vicente Sotto toward Magdalena Jalandoni and turn right onto Jalandoni. Philippine International Convention Center or PICC is along Vicente Sotto, visible from this direction.

    After crossing Gil Puyat Avenue intersection, road name changed to President Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard. Upon approaching the first stop light on Macapagal Boulevard, stay to the right of Macapagal and turn right onto Seaside Boulevard. Stay to the middle of Seaside Boulevard all the way until you see the Mall Of Asia. You will cross the intersection of Diokno Boulevard. After you cross Diokno Boulevard, to your right is the One Esplanade located at the corner of Diokno Boulevard and Seaside Boulevard. You can park at the open parking which is visible a little while after the road bends to the left and where Club LAX is located. How to get to Club LAX MOA? Park your car in the open parking space in the esplanade of MOA using the first Parking Entrance after you pass One Esplanade. LAX is just a few meters from the first entrance of open parking you get to see along Seaside Boulevard from One Esplanade. Now, if you're destination is MOA itself and you don't want to walk that far, get to the covered parking located at the North Building and another one at the South Building. Just pass by the first entrance of open parking from which LAX is located and from Seaside Boulevard turn left on Sunset Avenue, and you'll easily see the entrance to the covered parking up ahead next to SM Hypermart. You're now in Mall Of Asia or MOA. Enjoy!

    Roxas Boulevard: Great Place To Watch Fireworks On New Year Eve

  • 28 Dec 2010
  • Lag alag



  • Roxas Boulevard is a long stretch of thouroughfare by the Manila Bay, about 9 kilometers, from Anda Circle in the Port Area up to NAIA Road in Paranaque. It was so beautiful according to those who born ahead of us. But that was 40 years ago, when the whole stretch of the so called "lover's boulevard", known then as Dewey Boulevard, ran smoothly without obstructions brought about by major development that slowly engulfed our metropolis after the war. Then, it was so lovely. With coconut trees dotting along its line, Roxas Boulevard was the real picture of a grandeur highway. Today, Roxas Boulevard is wider. To give way for progress some coconut trees must be cut down. And so we have now CCP Complex, Mall of Asia, Metropolitan Park, Asiaworld City and soon the Nayong Pilipino Entertainment City. Well, if it's not yet stalled as presumed.

    Manila Bay at Roxas Boulevard now confined to Malate and Ermita Districts. And if you're wondering what part of Roxas Boulevard is the best area to watch fireworks this coming New Year's Eve, no doubt it's the part from Pedro Gil up to Quirino Avenue. Yearly, the local government of the city of Manila allots big budget for pyrotechnics to make the welcoming of the coming new year more memorable, joyful and festive.

    How To Get To Mall Of Asia Or MOA

  • Lag alag


  • The Mall of Asia or most popularly known as MOA is located exactly at the southern end of EDSA in the reclaimed land in Pasay City, Metro Manila. EDSA is the acronym of Epifanio Delos Santos Avenue, the main thoroughfare that cuts across Metro Manila from the north. Mall of Asia occupies 42 hectares of land by the Manila Bay. You can easily know that you're approaching MOA when you see its distinctive marker - the giant globe that illuminates at nights.


    BY BUS & JEEP BY LRT & MRT BY CAR LOCATION MAP

    How to get to Mall of Asia or MOA from North of Metro Manila - Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela, Fairview, Novaliches, West Avenue, SM North, Trinoma and other parts of Quezon City
    How to get to MOA from South of Metro Manila - Alabang, Muntinlupa, Pacita, etc.
    From Las Pinas, Cavite and nearby areas
    From Quiapo, Espana, Sta. Cruz, Dapitan, Binondo

    From Caloocan City

    Ride bus with "Baclaran MOA" sign at the corner of Rizal Avenue and 5th Avenue or at Monumento. This bus will take you directly to MOA. But make sure the sign has the word "MOA" on it.

    From Valenzuela, Navotas and Malabon

    You need to get to EDSA anywhere in Caloocan, then ride bus with "Baclaran MOA" sign. If there are buses that ply directly from your area going to Baclaran like in Letre and Marulas, then ride right there. But make sure the sign of the bus has the word "MOA" or the phrase "Mall of Asia" on it.

    From Novaliches

    Ride bus with "Baclaran MOA" sign along Quirino Highway. This bus will take you directly to MOA. Always make sure the sign has the word "MOA" or phrase "Mall of Asia" on it.

    From Fairview

    Ride bus with "Baclaran MOA" sign.

    How to get to Mall of Asia from South of Metro Manila - Alabang, Muntinlupa, Pacita, etc.

    From Alabang by bus

    Ride bus with sign that contains any of these destinations: Monumento, Novaliches, Letre, Philcoa and Fairview. Get off at unloading station in EDSA e.g. Magallanes MRT Station or Ayala MRT Station. Make sure the bus will not pass through the tunnel of Ayala. Ask the conductor if the bus will stop at Ayala or pass directly through the tunnel. Cross EDSA via MRT station's overpass - there are elevators in some MRT stations. Ride another bus with "Baclaran MOA" sign. This bus will take you directly to MOA. Tips: Magallanes Station has elevators on both sides, Ayala has only one, the other side, so you need to use stairway to go up. Loading zone in Ayala - just below the station and no need to walk too far. Loading station in Magallanes - too far from exit of elevator, you need to walk far along EDSA to take a ride. The comfort of elevator is offset by discomfort of walking too far to the loading zone.

    From Alabang by jeepney

    There are terminals of jeepneys going to Pasay Rotonda located in Alabang near Metropolis Star Mall. Some of them just pick up passengers along East Service Road near corner Montillano Street.

    How To Get To Avenida Manila Via Roxas Boulevard

  • 24 Dec 2010
  • Lag alag



  • Traveling to Avenida Manila via Roxas Boulevard is the best way one can take if they're coming from south of Metro Manila and Cavite. Here's the route. From Roxas Boulevard turn right onto Padre Burgos Street. This is the street that borders Luneta Park or Rizal Park to the north. From CCP Complex, you will cross four intersections before you get to Rizal Park from which you make your right turn onto Padre Burgos Street. These intersections are P. Ocampo formerly Vito Cruz, Quirino Avenue, Pedro Gil, and T.M. Kalaw Street. T.M. Kalaw is the street that borders Rizal Park or Luneta to the south.

    After the right turn, stay to the middle of Padre Burgos Street. While traversing the edge of Rizal Park, you will cross two stop lights before Padre Burgos Street bends to the left and a slip lane occurred to the right. Be careful not to get onto the slip lane, this will take you to Finance Road and lost your way. Another stop light and after that you are driving along the edge of National Museum, the building to your right. Up ahead the road bends again to the left and another road merges to it. Now you must make sure you're on the middle of the road upon approaching the next intersection. To your right now is Manila City Hall. It's important that you're on the middle of Padre Burgos to avoid apprehension. Traffic here is very heavy because of lots of jeepneys and buses from the road that merged a while ago. You will be tempted to change lane to the left but don't. Because if you're on the outermost lane you must take the direction toward Binondo or you will get the ticket.

    You see Padre Burgos becomes wider when the other road merged with it. And 250-meter away from the last stop light, two slip lanes occur dividing Padre Burgos Street into three main roads. Slip lane to your left will bring you to Binondo. Slip lane to your right will bring you to Quiapo. And the middle is the one that will bring you to Avenida. MMDA traffic officers stand right in this junction and I was flagged down once for that mistake. So avoid that.

    Use the elevated road toward the Pasig River and cross the river via Mac Arthur Bridge. Go with the flow of the traffic being taken by passenger jeepneys going to Monumento. Once you are under the elevated LRT Carriedo Station, you can be sure that you are now in Avenida Manila.

    How To Get To Manila Cathedral

  • Lag alag


  • Manila Cathedral is one of major attractions in Intramuros along with Fort Santiago and the walls that surround the Spanish Colonial City. It was built in 1581 but underwent series of major rebuilding over the centuries. The Manila Cathedral we see today is the result of a 2-year earthquake retrofitting and major refurbishment that also involved adapting modern amenities such as CCTV cameras and LED screens as well as enhanced interior and exterior lighting system. Manila Cathedral has reopened April 9, 2014. The church had also undergone 4-year construction from 1954 to 1958. Manila Cathedral historical value in the present time was recently seen on August 3, 2009 when remains of our late President Corazon Aquino was transferred here from La Sale Greenhills for the funeral mass. Here are the directions to Manila Cathedral from different parts of Metro Manila:
