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.
