Pasig River Ferry Trip

Source: WikipediaOn Thursday, January 3, 2008 I rode the Pasig River Ferry with a friend before going to our former offices to process some paperwork from our former employer.

The trip costs PHP 45.00 or about a little over USD 1.00 from Guadalupe to Plaza Mexico, Intramuros, Manila. Its a 45 minute boat ride. The vessel is airconditioned, clean and looked modern and safe.

For me the highlight of the trip was passing along the Malacañang Palace, the official home of the President of the Philippines. No pictures were allowed to be taken, for security reasons of course. However, I can say that the palace was really nice. I hope I can visit it if not live there one day. LOL!
