How To Commute To Lucky Chinatown Mall

  • This quick guide will tell you how to get to the posh shopping mall in Binondo-Divisoria area that will change the way you perceive the premier wholesale and retail destination of Metro Manila. Lucky Chinatown is a little Eastwood in my opinion and a bit of crossover between Newport Mall and Eastwood Mall. Are you a mall hopper? Go get down there and see it for yourself. Everything you expect of a classy mall is in there. But above all, bargain centers such as 999 Mall, 168 Malls and CityPlace Square are all connected to the new hub via walkways and footbridges.

    Lucky Chinatown

    Location:

    Along Reina Regente between Claro M. Recto Ave and Plaza Lorenzo Ruiz, the park across Binondo Church. See map below this post.

    Where to alight from the jeepney:

    Unloading area one. C.M Recto Ave corner Jose Abad Santos - an intersection with pedestrian bridges.

    Unloading area two. Soler cor Reina Regente - jeepneys from Recto turn right here if they take Masangkay St.

    Unloading area three. Plaza Lorenzo Ruiz Metrobank Downtown Center - jeepneys from Pedro Gil, Baclaran, Pasay Rotunda, Manila City Hall and Mabini pass by here.

    Refer to the map below this post.

    How To Quickly Get To Lucky Chinatown Mall


    Route #1

    From LRT-2 Recto Station, the nearest LRT-2 station.

    Ride a jeepney with "Divisoria" sign. If the jeepney crosses Masangkay St, alight at Jose Abad Santos (Unloading area one). Use the footbridge to get to the other corner of Recto which is Reina Regente, the road that continues Abad Santos. Walk along Reina Regente past Soler St towards the mall which you will easily see from the corner. If the jeepney turns left to Masangkay, it will turn right onto Soler St. Alight at Reina Regente corner Soler (Unloading area two) and walk towards the mall. See map below.

    Route #2

    From LRT-1 Doroteo Jose Station, the nearest LRT-1 station.

    Get to the corner of Avenida and Recto. Ride a jeepney with "Divisoria" sign. If the jeepney crosses Masangkay St, alight at Jose Abad Santos (Unloading area one). Use the footbridge to get to the other corner of Recto which is Reina Regente, the road that continues Abad Santos. Walk along Reina Regente past Soler St towards the mall which you will easily see from the corner. If the jeepney turns left to Masangkay, it will turn right onto Soler St. Alight at Reina Regente corner Soler (Unloading area two) and walk towards the mall. See map below.

    Route #3

    Via MRT-3 from all stations.

    Alight at MRT-3 Taft Station. Use the footbridge and get to the connected LRT-1 EDSA Station. Take a LRT-1 train bound for Roosevelt. Alight at Doroteo Jose Station. Follow direction at Route #2. See map below.

    Route #4

    Jeepneys from Baclaran, Pasay Rotunda, Harrison Plaza, Taft and Mabini. Jeepney sign reads "Divisoria". After the jeep crosses Pasig River via Jones Bridge, it will take Quintin Paredes which ends up in Plaza Lorenzo Ruiz. Get off the jeep after it passes by Binondo Church and reaches the tall building of Metrobank Downtown Center, opposite Plaza Lorenzo Ruiz Park (Unloading area three). Walk along the road that continues Quintin Paredes, that's Reina Regente. Lucky Chinatown is to the left past the small bridge over the creek. You can easily see it from afar. See map below.

    Route #5

    Jeepneys from Monumento, Caloocan, Malabon and Navotas. The jeep takes Abad Santos Ave all the way to Recto. Alight at Recto or before Recto (Unloading area one), use the pedestrian overpass to get to the other corner which is Reina Regente, the road that continues Abad Santos. Walk along Reina Regente past Soler until you get to Lucky Chinatown, to your right. You will easily see the mall even if you are still at Soler, the road next to Recto. See map below.

    Route #6

    Jeepneys from Marikina, Cubao, Araneta Center, Magsaysay Blvd, SM City Sta Mesa, V. Mapa, Legarda, Broadway Centrum and places nearby. The sign of jeepney that you must ride is "Divisoria". You can ride this jeep along the road where LRT-2 runs - Aurora Blvd which becomes Magsaysay Blvd and Recto Ave. If you don't want to take train, this is the best one-ride commute by jeepney to Lucky Chinatown Mall. It will turn right onto Recto Ave from Legarda and Nagtahan. After the jeepney crosses Avenida with LRT-1 above it, it will either go straight to Abad Santos or turn left on Masangkay St then right to Soler. If the jeepney crosses Masangkay St, alight at Jose Abad Santos (Unloading area one). Use the footbridge to get to the other corner of Recto which is Reina Regente, the road that continues Abad Santos. Walk along Reina Regente past Soler St towards the mall which you will easily see from the corner. If the jeepney turns left to Masangkay, it will turn right onto Soler St. Alight at Reina Regente corner Soler (Unloading area two) and walk towards the mall. Refer to the map below.

    Route #7

    From Escolta River Ferry Station. Ride a jeepney with "Divisoria" sign at the loading/unloading near the foot of Jones Bridge. These jeepneys pass through Jones Bridge from its origin in Baclara, Pasay, Pedro Gil, etc. Follow the direction given at Route #4 above.

    @ Khei Olaz. Take a jeepney with "Marikina" sign along Recto which is very near to Lucky Chinatown.
