Underground Walkway From Glorietta 5 To Glorietta 4

  • It was raining hard when we finished our meal in Giligan's Restaurant at Gloritta 5's third level yesterday afternoon. We needed to get to Glorietta 4 so that we could walk our way to MRT-3 Ayala Station without getting wet.

    Before that, we were enjoying the superb meal on the veranda of Giligan's Restaurant overlooking the greenery and free flowing traffic below. The scene of the twin towers of Ascot Hotel protruding from Glorietta 4 podium blurred by the mist had served as an excellent backdrop in our otherwise humid surrounding.

    After the meal, and just we're about to go, the downpour started and we wondered how we could get across the park and into Glorietta 4 from which we could walk to the MRT Station.

    Until we discovered a walkway that connects Glorietta 4 and Glorieeta 5 under the ground where the park and roads are laid.

    I was amazed, really. I think, only few people have knowledge about the existence of this walkway. But of course, private car owners who happened to park their cars in Glorietta 5 basement parking have full knowledge of this shoppers' underground walkway. Primarily, the tunnel serves private car owners as it has doors directly open to the parking.

    But, ultimately, shoppers, diners, pedestrians and office workers who travel by train get the maximum benefit and convenient of using this somewhat hidden walkway especially during this season of heavy rains.

    The entry into the walkway is located at the northwest side of Glorietta 5 Mall which is Rustan's Supermarket side. From the main lobby of Glorietta 5, walk towards the entrance in East Drive, the road between Rustan's and Glorietta 5. There's another hallway to the right before the entrance. Take this hallway and go left until you see the "Walkway To Glorietta 4" sign. Get down the stair and follow the direction it takes. Soon, you'll be walking inside the airconditioned walkway that will take you to Glorietta 4.
