  • U.N. Avenue Station of LRT-1, the Yellow Line serves Ermita District. It is located at the corner of Taft Avenue and United Nations Avenue and near to Rizal Park and Government offices as well as school, universities, hospitals, malls and hotels. If you're coming from a far distant area in the north like Bulacan, Pampanga, Novaliches, Balintawak, U.P. Diliman, Fairview, CAMANAVA, etc or east of Metro Manila like Pasig, Antipolo, Marikina, etc, and you're going to U.S. Embassy, the best route to take is via MRT and LRT. Get off at U.N. Avenue Station and ride a taxi to get to the U.S. Embassy, which is located exactly at the southwest tip of Roxas Boulevard. It's approximately 940 meters from U.N. Avenue Station to the gate of U.S. Embassy, a good walk exercise if you will. Especially in the early morning when most of visa applicants go there.

    This post will tell you how to get to different places in the surrounding areas of LRT-1 U.N. Avenue Station. You can go to Robinson's Place Manila more faster from a far flung location if you get off here rather than in Pedro Gil Station where you need to walk towards the direction of Robinson's. If you take this route to get to Robinson's, you still need to walk but not that far. Of course, the reason is there's a jeepney route along Padre Faura that passes through all wings of Robinson's Place Manila. U.N. Avenue Station is also the best route if you're going to Bellagio Square if you're coming from a far distant location and you're commuting by LRT and MRT. To get to Bellagio Square, you only need to walk a little bit towards Padre Faura, ride a jeepney and ask the driver to drop you off at Pedro Gil corner Jeorge Bacobo. For a complete direction guide on how to go to Bellagio Square, type how to get to bellagio square inside Search Direction Here box that you see in our side bar - above, right. Then click "Search" or just press enter on your keyboard.

    2. From LRT UN Ave Station, walk along Taft Ave up to the corner of Padre Faura where Supreme Court is situated. Ride a jeepney with "Robinson's Place Sta Ana" sign. Alight at the corner of Padre Faura and MH Del Pilar on which the jeepney will turn left. From the corner of Del Pilar and Padre Faura, walk towards Roxas Blvd. Pagcor House is located to the left corner of Faura and Roxas Blvd service road.

    3. Hi sir can i ask the easiest way to commute back and forth going to Palacio De Maynila in Roxas Boulevard coming from Monumento Lrt Station. Thank u very much :)

    4. @ Jhoi Corotan. Two options: fast and slow. Fast - take a LRT train bound for Baclaran. Alight at Doroteo Jose Station. Below the station, ride a jeepney with "Baclaran Mabini Del Pilar" signs on its sides and "Baclaran Mabiti" on its front. Watch for Diamond Hotel to your right, ask the driver's help. Tell him to point you to Diamond Hotel. Once the jeep goes past Diamond Hotel, it will cross two streets - J Quintos Sr, the street that bordered Diamond hotel, and the second street to your right is Pasaje del Carmen. Get off the jeep after Pasaje del Carmen. Palacio de Manila is to the right of the road where you alighted which is M.H. del Pilar Street past Pasaje del Carmen. Slow - Ride the same jeepney in Monumento and follow the same direction. Note: You can get off the train at Carriedo Station if you know where to ride the jeepney which is a bit far from the station unlike in Doroteo where the jeepneys stop right below the station

      How to get back to Monumento? Del Pilar Street is one way towards Baclaran. The road that goes towards Monumento is paralleled to del Pilar. From Palacio de Manila, take Sinagoga Street, the road perpendicular to Del Pilar. Walk towards the other end of Sinagoga, that's Mabini. Ride the same jeepney from Baclaran only this time the sign in its front is "Monumento". I am hoping that these directions help you get to your destination. Take care. :)

    6. @ Jhoana Mari Clenista. There is no jeepney or fx from UN Ave Station. Either take a taxi or walk the entire UN Ave. If you still prefer jeepney, walk to the corner of Padre Faura and ride a jeepney bound for Sta Ana or San Andres and ask driver to drop you off at Del Pilar corner Faura. Walk along Faura a little bit until you get to Roxas Blvd. US Embassy is located at the other side of Roxas Blvd but still need to walk a bit. Hope my guide helps you.
