  • There are so many maritime corporations and seaman-hiring companies as well as POEA accredited recruitment agencies located around LRT-1 Quirino Station. Some of them have their own buildings while others are housed in multi-story buildings. I created this guide for job seekers that don't know how to get to their respective recruiter's address here. Aside from OFW (Overseas Filipino Workers) destinations, scores of restaurants, hotels, bars and clubs are also accessible via this train station. By commute, it's much nearer to use Quirino Station if you're headed to Remedios Circle as there are jeepneys you can take to Adriatico St and other paralleled roads from which Malate's nightlife attraction is a stone's throw away. You can also get to Malate Church faster from this station, just take jeepney with "Dakota Harrison Plaza" sign with its loading bay located right below the station.

    It's always best to get to where you're headed as fast as you can. Especially if you're from outside of Metro Manila, e.g., Pampanga, Bulacan, Tarlac, Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Quezon Province, etc. After a bus route to Manila, nothing compares to taking a LRT train to get to your destination. In this article, I will guide you to buildings and institutions that can be reached on foot or a short jeepney ride from LRT-1 Quirino Ave Station.

    Check if your destination is listed below and then read the rest of this article to guide yourself in getting there. Important: If your destination is listed, please read the whole article until you get to the part in which your destination is given direction. I created this to help you out so please be patient while reading. Use the maps I created for your convenience and to help you even more.
