The LRT is a good way to travel around Metro Manila. It has two lines, Line One and Line Two intersect in Doroteo Jose Station. It's better to take the LRT, just not at rush hour, as it is quite packed. But it is a...More

Sad, but true. The LRT/MRT facility in the Philippines is poor. Most of the time, escalators and elevators are not working, air-conditioning units in some trains don't function well that you'd get sweaty especially during summertime, hence bringing fan and hanky is a must when...More

This is the worst train ive seen. So disgusting. Extremely long queue and trains arrive once in 15 minutes. So overcrowded and people are squeezed inside. This is trash compared to SG and KL subways.
