No trip to Manila would be complete unless you've tried riding a local tranportation called 'Kalesa'
2 person can ride comfortably, but sometimes a 3rd person can seat on the coachman's place in front.
Catch some kalesas around Binondo/Chinatown area

Running along EDSA
North Ave - Quezon Ave - Kamuning - Cubao (Connects to MRT2) - Santolan - Ortigas - Shaw Blvd - Boni - Guadalupe - Buendia - Ayala - Magallanes - Taft (connects to LRT1)
Base fare of P10 for the 1st 3 station, additional P1 for the suceeding segment (3 stations/segment)
Written May 15, 2006
Shaw - easily accessible to Shangri-La mall (high-end shopping) and to Ortigas Center - MM's 2nd business district where the Asian Devt Bank (ADB) and San Miguel (F&B company) have their headquarters.
Ortigas - gateway to shopping paradise of SM Megamall and Robinsons Galleria - huge shopping malls all. Be careful, though, as the sidewalk here is narrow and you might be sideswept by speeding buses and cars.
Santolan - takes you to two military camps - Camps Aguinaldo and Crame, and to Greenhills shopping area-the best place to get your tech gadgets and mobile phones and DVDs, VCDs.
Cubao - get off this station if you want to go to Araneta Center - another commercial (read: shopping) area - Gateway mall (one of Manila's newest malls), Ali Mall (yes, named after the boxing legend), and Araneta Coliseum, favorite venue for concerts, basketball games, and, (brace yourself) cockfights!
GMA Kamuning - takes you to the main office of GMA, a major TV station.
Quezon - get off here if you want to visit the Diliman campus of the University of the Philippines, the Quezon Memorial Circle, among others.
North - the end of the line (although plans are afoot to extend the line up to Monumento, Caloocan City and interconnect it with the northern end of LRT 1), takes you to SM City, SM's first shopping mall built during the crisis years of the 1980s.
Fare: MRT 3 is the cheapest way to go around Metro Manila, you pay only 9.50 pesos for a trip to the next station, and add 0.50 for every succeeding station. Total fare for the entire trip is 15 pesos.
Tip: If you intend to use the system more than once, better get stored value cards at 100 pesos each. You avoid queuing up every time you take the system and cheaper in the sense that they go by the "last ride bonus" system where you don't have to pay the difference between the actual fare and the remaining credit in your stored value card.

Unlike most megalopolises, which do have efficient mass transit systems, Metro Manila (MM - the metropolitan area around the core, capital city of Manila) still lacks one. Fortunately, efforts are now underway to develop one (taking so long, as usual) and so far there are 3 existing lines - line 1 (known as LRT 1), MRT 2, and MRT 3. Expansion of these lines as well as construction of new ones are still in the works. Eventually, the plan is to connect all these lines in one seamless mass transit system (wish them luck!).
Also known as the Metrostar Express, MRT 3 has been designated as the blue line in the current administration's so-called Strong Republic Transit System (SRT - expect this to change with a change in administration). At present, MRT 3 covers total length of 16.8 kms and 13 stations. It's the best and most affordable way to go around MM as it traverses the capital's most famous circumferential road and single most important thoroughfare, Epifanio de los Santos Ave, fondly called EDSA.
A virtual south-north trip: starting from the Pasay station, which connects MRT 3 to LRT 1, we move up north. Some points of interest:
Pasay - this is the southernmost station, which is connected to an easily-forgettable mall. To LRT 1, take the bridgeway connecting the two lines.
Magallanes - nothing special to see from this station, unless you need to go to Pasong Tamo Extension.
Ayala - this is the main access to Metro Manila's central business district, where multinational companies and top Filipino corporations have their offices. Top hotels, great shopping - Glorietta, Greenbelt - are also accessible from this station.
Buendia - will take you to Makati Ave area, where some of Makatis naughty bars are, particulary P. Burgos St (ironically, named after a priest!).
Guadalupe - another forgettable station.
Boni - nothing to see here
