VIAJES de MANILA: Downtown Manila Tour 13 May 2011

This Friday, join me as I facilitate a tour around Downtown Manila from 9:00 in the morning to around 3:00 in the afternoon. The fee for the facilitator is a measly 100 Pesos while the rest of the fees (transportation, food and souvenirs) are yours.

Meeting place is at the Recto LRT2 station at the ticket vending area.

The itinerary is as follows:

THE NATIONAL MUSEUM
QUIAPO CHURCH and ITS ENVIRONS
AVENIDA RIZAL
THE ESCOLTA
BINONDO
then a PASIG RIVER CRUISE to GUADALUPE, MAKATI

I shall be sharing historical details about the places we shall be visiting and also giving my insights on the many urban issues of Downtown Manila as well as Modern Metro Manila.

Please be in comfortable clothes and bring foldable umbrellas, hand sanitizers or rubbing alcohol, handkerchiefs and other paraphernalia that would keep you fresh. Likewise, DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT bring expensive items that can easily be snatched such as necklaces, earings, bracelets, watches and other things. Mobile phones should be kept in pockets when walking.

Since this would be a walking tour, please prepare for intermittent weather and always be alert for men (and women) of ill intentions. Ironically, this would be the only way for people to realize the realities of living in Manila and how urgent the demand is to rehabilitate the city.

SO again, if you’re free this Friday and more than willing to stretch those legs, spend time looking at Manila right straight to its face, then JOIN this Friday’s tour!

The group meets at the Recto LRT2 station ticket vending area at 9 AM.

About hechoayer

Things made yesterday still influence us until today. Things made today will influence us tomorrow. Things of the essence such as faith, culture, food, music and values should never disappear nor eroded by the times. Instead, these must be recorded, lived and shared. Something made yesterday - hecho ayer - can be tomorrow's saving grace. Never ignore the past.
