Follow the instructions below using this map.

  • From your hostel, walk to B. Valdez Street and ride a jeepney (runs from 5am to 10 pm) with a signboard that says “Guadalupe Ibabaw” (the sun symbols on the map indicate where you should ride the jeepney).
  • Tell the jeepney driver to drop you off at “EDSA”.
  • Once at EDSA, you have two options:
    a. Walk to the EDSA-Guadalupe bus stop and ride a public metro bus (Bus A or Bus C) with a signboard that says “MIA” or “Mall of Asia”. The bus doesn’t have to have both names on its signboard; you can ride either of the two. Once inside the bus, tell the conductor to drop you off in “Pasay Rotonda”.
    b. Ride the MRT (Manila Metro Rail Transit System) southbound train from Guadalupe Station to Taft Station where Pasay Rotonda is.
