Never mind road trips, how about a boat ride for a change?

Manila traffic can truly be a pain in the butt–literally and metaphorically–but it’s a good thing that we have alternatives like the Pasig River Ferry service, where you can ride travel to and from Manila, Mandaluyong, Makati, and Pasig for free!

The ferry service currently has 11 stations and offers trip schedules for the downstream route (Pinagbuhatan to Escolta) and the upstream route (Escolt to Pinagbuhatan). For more information on the schedule, you can check out this website and Facebook page.
