T’was Saturday afternoon when I decided to go to escolta riverside for a photoshoot, tagged along my brother and nephew with me. After walking and taking photos of the stretch (which made me wonder why the beautification of this place didn’t pushed thru, it would have been a very nice place to stroll) I saw the ferry that crosses the pasig river.
Seems that the ferry was waiting for us to experience the ride along pasig river and we heed her call and decided to embark on a journey and try the boat ride just for the heck of it afterall we’re just planning to hit the mall after the photoshoot. And boy we never regretted the decision, a wonderful experience to travel by boat in the metropolis! My imagination was running haywire going back centuries ago when the river was still pristine. I’ll post more photos tomorrow, my internet connection is so slow right now.
Here's what the ferry looks like inside, the ferry is airconditioned and there's TV to keep you entertained if you're not interested in sight seeing
I highly recommend this tour to everyone, try it and experience the ride. The Pasig River ferry runs from Intramuros - Plaza Mexico, Manila to Kalawaan Pasig. There are 12 ferry stations along the pasig river stretch. It is open daily, first boat leaves at 6AM. You get to travel in safety and it is comfortable, the best thing about it is that there’s no traffic – you can be at Guadalupe from Escolta in just 55 minutes. The ferry departs every 30minutes. Regular fare: minimum of P20.00 to maximum of P45.00
