    Open Parking Space Along Roxas Boulevard Beside U.S. Embassy

  • 20 Jan 2011
  • Lagalag


  • Flash Update!!! The place written on this post may not available at this moment because of what had happened to Roxas Blvd wrought by the havoc of typhoon Pedring. Roxas Blvd seawall is currently under major reconstruction today.

    There's an open space converted into parking space along Roxas Boulevard near U.S. Embassy. It's just a walking distance from the embassy. But take note that this parking space, as I've noticed upon passing by here on my cruising from time to time, is not open all the time. There are times a lot of cars are parked. There are times, not one, and some iron sticks are set up across the entrance. Now let me share to you an experience that had happened in a similar parking near Manila Yacht Club right before Quirino Avenue. Those "back-up boys" were setting up those iron structure to control the parking area and convey the message to the drivers that they must be paid for watching after the cars. What we did that time was to blow our horn and they immediately allow us. That time I was carrying a handycam and when they noticed it, they disappeared. When we're about to leave the parking area, not single person approach us to collect parking fees.


    Before I guide you to that public parking area along Roxas Boulevard. let's just learn how to get to U.S. Embassy. So here's the directions to U.S. Embassy from different parts of Metro Manila. Each route contains direction to the open space that's now converted into public parking area along Roxas Boulevard.

    Route #1

    From north of Metro Manila including Bulacan, Novaliches, Caloocan City, Balintawak, Bagong Baryo and other areas near these vicinities - you can take the route via Quiapo. Take A. Bonifacio Avenue and Dimasalang Street to Quezon Boulevard. On Quezon Boulevard go straight up to Quiapo, passing through the Quezon Boulevard underpas, and Lawton, crossing Pasig river via Quezon Bridge. Road name changes to Padre Burgos after passing Lawton area, and the road also bends to the left. Stay to the right of P. Burgos Street to avoid getting onto the Lagusnilad underpass and Taft Avenue. Again let me reiterate, after crossing the intersection of the street next to Lawton that borders Manila City Hall, avoid passing through the Lagusnilad underpass by staying to the right of Padre Burgos.

Again let me reiterate, after crossing the intersection of the street next to Lawton that borders Manila City Hall, avoid passing through the Lagusnilad underpass by staying to the right of Padre Burgos. After passing that junction, stay to the middle of Padre Burgos, to your left now is the National Museum.

    Directions Bytes: Direction To Araneta Coliseum From SLEX

  • Lagalag


  • Here's a quick guide:

    From SLEX, turn right onto EDSA via the flyover in EDSA Interchange that turns right onto EDSA. In EDSA, stay to the middle lane, pass through Ayala tunnel, and drive all the way. You must pass through the following, in this order: Guadalupe Bridge - this is the bridge that crosses Pasig River, EDSA-Shaw Underpass - underneath Shaw Terminal of MRT-3, EDSA-Ortigas Flyover - the flyover after you pass SM Mega Mall to your right, and lastly, Santolan Flyover - this is the flyover after you pass the People Power Monument along EDSA and Camp Aguinaldo both to your right and after you pass under another MRT Station which is Santolan Station.

    Now, while you're descending Santolan Flyover, you must change lane to the rightmost. You will turn right onto the street next to Santolan Flyover which is Main Avenue. You need to be very careful as you'll cross orange lane. There are MMDA Traffic Enforcers in the junction so follow traffic rules. Wait until you see the broken white lines that runs diagonally from your lane to the corner of Main Avenue. Drive slowly as soon as you passed Santolan to make sure you don't go beyond the path to Main Avenue. There's Shell Gasoline Station at the corner of EDSA and Main Avenue

    At this point, you're now driving along Main Avenue. This street is a narrow road even if they call it "avenue". You will turn left anytime soon. After crossing two streets, 7th Avenue and 8th Avenue, respectively, turn left on the third street which is 9th Avenue. Stay to the middle of 9th Avenue and drive on. Next main intersection is P. Tuazon Blvd. Cross Tuazon Boulevard and welcome, you are now in Araneta Center, Cubao. To your right is SM Cubao and up ahead is the Araneta Coliseum, to your left. The road name also changed. It's now General Aguinaldo Avenue.

    Now, since you're going to Araneta Coliseum, I will guide you to the parking area located beneath the coliseum. It's the most convenient for me as you just need to take an escalator to get to the ground which is just a few steps away from Araneta Coliseum. I've watched Pacquio-Margarito Fight last year and this is how I parked.

    The parking near to Araneta Coliseum is at the basement of Gateway Mall which is adjacent to Araneta Coliseum. Stay to the middle of General Aguinaldo Avenue and cross the next intersection which is General Mc Arthur Avenue. At this time, you're now staring to Araneta Coliseum to your left. Entrance parking is right next to Araneta Coliseum. But wait, there's no U-Turn along General Aguinaldo Avenue so you need to change your lane to the right of General Aguinaldo Avenue. Turn right onto the next street which is General Roxas Avenue. After you turned right onto Roxas Avenue, make a U-Turn back onto the direction of General Aguinaldo Avenue. Turn left on General Aguinaldo Avenue. Before Araneta Coliseum and near to the Gazebo of Gateway Mall is the entrance to the basement parking. Follow the sign and you're on the way to park your car.

    There you go. Hope this helps you.

    Direction Bytes: Route From Lawton To Harrison Plaza

  • Lagalag


  • From Lawton, we assume you're taking Padre Burgos Street, the road name that continued Quezon Boulevard. Stay on Padre Burgos Street. Upon approach to the next intersection you must change your lane to the right of P. Burgos Street to avoid getting onto the Lagusnilad underpass and Taft Avenue. But not totally to the rightmost lane as you're not turning right. Just enough to avoid the Lagusnilad underpass. Again let me reiterate, after crossing the intersection of the street next to Lawton that borders Manila City Hall, avoid passing through the Lagusnilad underpass by staying to the right of Padre Burgos. After passing that junction, stay to the middle of Padre Burgos, to your left now is the National Museum. Cross intersections of Finance Road, General Luna Street which is the way going to Intramuros, and Palacio Street. After crossing Palacio Street, stay to the left of Padre Burgos Street and then turn left on Roxas Blvd. Drive on Roxas Blvd all the way, stay to the middle, and cross intersections of U.N. Avenue, Pedro Gil and Quirino Avenue.

    After crossing Quirino Avenue, change lane to the right in preparation for a right turn. Turn right onto CCP Complex. Then make a U-Turn at the end of the island to get back to Roxas Boulevard. Cross Roxas Boulevard onto Pablo Ocampo Street formerly Vito Cruz. Stay to the middle of Pablo Ocampo Street and cross Harrison Street. Immediately, change lane to the left and turn left on the street next to Mang Inasal. This street serves as driveway to the big parking lot of Harrison Plaza. To park your car in Harrison Plaza parking lot, turn right onto the next street. Traffic inside Harrison Plaza Complex is one way, that's why you need to turn right. After passing Century Hotel to your right, turn left onto the next street, the road beside SM Department Store. You can now park your car in any comfortable parking slot. Tip: Go all the way pass SM and turn left on the next corner so that you can park near the main entrance of Harrison Plaza.

    This driving route is the best direction to avoid traffic in any roads passing Harrison Plaza. This is the route to take for private vehicles.

    Commuting by jeep, ride a jeep with "Vito Cruz Harrison Plaza" sign or "Baclaran Mabini" and get off at Harrison Plaza.

    Direction Bytes: From EDSA-Crossing To Intramuros

  • 17 Jan 2011
  • Lagalag


  • From EDSA-Crossing ride a jeep with "Quiapo" sign. During day-time no jeepney is allowed to pass through the ground level lane crossing EDSA. All jeepney passing along Show Boulevard bound to Quiapo pass through EDSA-Shaw flyover. The route these jeepneys take is "Pasig-Quiapo". You must take the ride at the loading area along Shaw Boulevard on either side of the foot of the flyover. If you near Shangri-La Plaza, you need to walk down the street toward the foot of the flyover near corner of St. Francis Street and Shaw Boulevard where Citiland Shaw Tower stands. Cross St. Francis Street up to the loading and unloading Area of jeepney, right before they get onto the flyover.

    Once in Quiapo, cross Quezon Boulevard via Quiapo Underpass. Along Quezon Boulevard, by the Quiapo Church, jeepneys going to "Baclaran" stop to pick up passengers. Ride a jeepney with sign that read "Baclaran-Mabini" only. Don't ride a jeepney with "Baclaran-Taft" sign. Pay minimum fare. These jeepneys that take Mabini route, pass by Intramuros. Now, there are two entrances of Intramuros, each too far from each other. You must first determine the location of your destination inside the walled city of Intramuros so that you know where to get off. And there's also another jeepney route that gets in right inside Intramuros. But if you're destination is near PLM or Pamantasan ng Maynila, ride "Baclaran-Mabini" jeepney and ask the driver to drop you off at Round Table. PLM is only around 100 meters from the drop-off. Near to PLM are these institutions: San Agustin Church, Philippine Red Cross, Department of Labor and Employment and Manila Buletin. If your destination is near San Juan De Letran Colloge, ask driver to drop you off at Manila City Hall. Once you got off, don't go toward Manila City Hall. Just walk to the entrance of Intramuros which is very visible from your location. It's only around 100-meter walk to the wall of Intramuros. Once inside Intramuros, to your right is San Juan De Letran College. You can go to your destination from there. Now, if you're going to a location near Manila Cathedral, Fort Santiago, Palacio del Governador and Comelec, ride a jeepney with "Pier" sign, also right along Quezon Boulevard, by the Quiapo Church. You can get off at Palacio del Governador Building, from which Manila Cathedral is near, then walk to your exact destination.

    Knowing where exactly in Intramuros you're going to will save you time and energy as you know which route of jeepney to take. On the other hand, if you're a tourist, I recommend starting your tour from the location of PLM and walk along General Luna toward Manila Cathedral, as you get to pass by different souvenir, art and antique shops as well as museum, restaurant and the San Agustin Church. After that, you can explore other parts of Intramuros, such as the wall itself.

    For additional guide, here is the Map of Intramuros:

    Driving Directions to Duty Free Philippines Fiesta Mall

  • 15 Jan 2011
  • Lagalag


  • Many Filipinos who arrive from a trip abroad, even some balikbayans and returning OFWs has a habit of doing their duty free shopping days after their arrival date. I don't see any wrong with that. It's more relaxing and stress-free when you've already rested your body before you do the shopping, most especially that you're buying imported goods. We just need to remember that there are deadlines for duty free shopping. 48 hours for arriving passengers and foreign tourists, 15 days for balikbayans and OFWs and 1 year for senior citizens and handicapped persons. To help you manage your time, here are driving directions from different parts of Metro Manila to the Duty Free Philippines Fiesta Mall located in Ninoy Aquino Avenue, Paranaque City. You can also view photos of Duty Free Philippines and it's location map below.

    How To Get To Duty Free Philippines Fiesta Mall By Car

    Route #1

    From north of Metro Manila including Bulacan, Novaliches, Caloocan City, Balintawak, Bagong Baryo, Pampanga, Subic, Zambalez and other areas in Norther Luzon - you can take the route via Quiapo and Roxas Boulevard if you want to avoid the perennial traffic along EDSA.

    Take A. Bonifacio Avenue from NLEX. A. Bonifacio is the road that continues NLEX after passing through EDSA Cloverleaf Interchange in Balintawak. Stay on A. Bonifacio Avenue up to its other end which is in Blumentritt. Turn right onto Blumentritt. In Blumentritt, you get to pass by Dimasalang, a T-intersection to the left, and the Chinese General Hospital complex, and then, you must change your lane to the leftmost in preparation for a left turn in Aurora Boulevard.

    Here's a very important reminder. Aurora Boulevard intersection is a junction of more than two roads. Another street called Isagani runs diagonal to the left from where Blumentritt and Aurora Boulevard intersect. Avoid getting onto Isagani. You can do that by making a very sharp left turn, around 42 degree, to Aurora Boulevard. Most of the vehicles including passenger jeeps go left on Aurora Boulevard, so you can just follow them. I need to remind you about this because, it's very confusing when you already there. Aurora is wide and so is Isagani. So, just remember, sharp left to the wide road that intersects Blumentritt, that's Aurora Boulevard.

    In Aurora Boulevard, immediately go to to the rightmost lane and then turn right onto Dimasalang Street. Next intersection is Lacson Avenue. Cross Lacson Avenue and take Laon Laan Street. Dimasalang ends up in Lacson Avenue. Next main intersection in Laon Laan is Alfonso Mendoza in which Laong Laan ends. Alfonso Mendoza becomes Quezon Boulevard. Turn left on Alfonso Mendoza aka Quezon Boulevard.

    Stay to the middle of Quezon Boulevard and drive all the way, passing through Quezon Underpass. Cross Pasig River via Quezon Bridge until you get to Lawton where the big Post Office Building is situated to your right.

    Road name changes to Padre Burgos after passing Lawton area, and the road also bends to the left. Stay to the right of P. Burgos Street to avoid getting onto the Lagusnilad underpass and Taft Avenue. Again let me reiterate, after crossing the intersection of the street next to Lawton that borders Manila City Hall, avoid passing through the Lagusnilad underpass by staying to the right of Padre Burgos. After passing that junction, stay to the middle of Padre Burgos, to your left now is the National Museum. Cross intersections of Finance Road, General Luna Street which is the way going to Intramuros, and Palacio Street. After crossing Palacio Street, stay to the left of Padre Burgos Street and then turn left on Roxas Blvd. Drive on Roxas Blvd all the way, stay to the middle, cross all intersections and pass through two flyovers - Gil Puyat flyover and EDSA flyover. By this time you're in the vicinity of Baclaran. After crossing the intersection of Airport Road, change lane to left of Roxas Boulevard in preparation for left turn. Turn left on NAIA Road. By the way, for added information, at the corner of Roxas Boulevard and NAIA Road to the other side is the location of Uniwide Coastal Mall. So if you're going there sometime, this is the route to take but you must stay to the right to get to Uniwide Coastal Mall.

    Back to topic. Now, you're on NAIA Road. Stay to the middle and cross intersections of Quirino Avenue and Domestic Road, respectively. After crossing Domestic Road, stay to the right. Next intersection with traffic lights is Ninoy Aquino Avenue. Turn right onto Ninoy Aquino Avenue. Avoid getting onto the ramp going to Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 also known as NAIA-1 which is located to the left of Ninoy Aquino Avenue. After passing the ramp to NAIA-1, stay to the middle of Ninoy Aquino Avenue.

    Immediately next to the ramp of NAIA is PAGCOR, a huge landmark to the right of Ninoy Aquino Avenue. While traversing PAGCOR complex, you will conspicuously notice Gate-3, followed by Gate-4. These are the gates of PAGCOR along Ninoy Aquino Avenue.

This route is from Monumento, Project 8, Project 7, Project 2-3, Philcoa, Fairview, U.P. Diliman, Cubao and other areas on these vicinities. Take EDSA all the way to Pasay, pass through all the flyovers, tunnels and underpasses.

Now before I continue this route to Duty Free Philippines, if you turn left the name of the road is Andrews Avenue from Aurora Boulevard, turning right the road is Airport Road from the corner of Aurora Boulevard. If you turn left on Andrew Avenue, you'll be going to Resort World Manila and NAIA Terminal 3. That's the route to Resort World Manila and NAIA-3 from EDSA and all the locations I've mention at beginning of the route. Just stay on Andrews Avenue to get to Resort World and NAIA-3. You'll pass through a roundabout or rotonda before you get back again onto Andrews Avenue where the NAIA-3 is to the right and the Resort World Manila is to the left.

    Route #3

    From Tondo, Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela, Binondo, Divisoria and other areas on these vicinities. Note: This route is the alternative route from Monumento. Route #2 is also an alternative route from Caloocan, Malabon and Valenzuela (Camanava). Advice from DirectionsOnWeb. Don't take Route #2 or the via EDSA route during peak hours as well as Fridays as this thouroughfare is congested during these days. Always check traffic situation along EDSA before you decide to take that route. I think, this route #3 is the good route compare to EDSA, except Wednesdays, of course, when all devotees of Our Mother of Perpetual Help flock to Redemptorist Church. The beauty of this route is the fact that many vehicles that used to passing through Roxas Boulevard now take the parallel highway which is President Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard. Especially those going to the south of Metro Manila as well as the province of Cavite. A large volume of motorists is cut from Roxas Boulevard making it conducive for driving smoothly. You know, people, I myself can't express the feeling I feel everytime I cruise this historic boulevard, especially along the former Bay Walk area. The road widened, the coconut trees trimmed down so that it proportionally aligned the whole stretch of promenade along this grand boulevard, capped by a picturesque backdrop of Manila Bay below the great looking sky. I don't exactly look, otherwise I will collide with other vehicles. It just feels great cruising Roxas Boulevard. Where are we? I was carried away. I was enjoying it vicariously hehe. Okay back to topic.

    From your area, get to Jose Abad Santos Avenue. Those from Caloocan, Navotas, Malabon and Valenzueal take Rizal Avenue or any street parallel to it to get to Jose Abad Santos Avenue. Stay to the middle of Jose Abad Santos Avenue up to its end. Jose Abad Santos Avenue ends up in Recto. Cross Recto Avenue and Reina Regente begins. Drive on Reina Regente up to Plaza Lorenzo Ruiz. Turn right to go with the flow of one way traffic around Plaza Lorenzo Ruiz turning left on Juan Luna Street. Stay on Juan Luna crossing Dasmarinas Street. Follow where public jeepneys turn. Turn left on the next street after Dasmarinas. Turn right onto Jones bridge to cross Pasig River. You are now in Lawton taking Padre Burgos Street. Stay on Padre Burgos Street. Upon approach to the next intersection you must change your lane to the right of P. Burgos Street to avoid getting onto the Lagusnilad underpass and Taft Avenue. But not totally to the rightmost lane as you're not turning right. Just enough to avoid the Lagusnilad underpass. Again let me reiterate, after crossing the intersection of the street next to Lawton that borders Manila City Hall, avoid passing through the Lagusnilad underpass by staying to the right of Padre Burgos. After passing that junction, stay to the middle of Padre Burgos, to your left now is the National Museum. Cross intersections of Finance Road, General Luna Street which is the way going to Intramuros, and Palacio Street. After crossing Palacio Street, stay to the left of Padre Burgos Street and then turn left on Roxas Blvd. Drive on Roxas Blvd all the way, stay to the middle, cross all intersections and pass through two flyovers of Gil Puyat and EDSA.
