Trains are the fastest but certainly not the most convenient way to travel long distances in the Megacity. There are five railway lines in Metro Manila: PNR Southrail and Northrail, LRT 1 and 2, and MRT 3.

Labor Day, the international day for the achievements and rights of workers, is a regular holiday in the Philippines. It is celebrated with protest marches on the one hand and job fairs on the other.

The busy Megacity life comes to a halt in parts of Metro Manila during the Easter holidays. Find out here which malls are open during the Lenten Season and whether the trains will be in operation. 

EDSA near Pasig River "/var/ezdemo_site/storage/images/media/manila/images-manila/local-life/edsa-near-pasig-river/473456-2-eng-GB/EDSA-near-Pasig-River_zoom_image.jpg" 2000 1008 EDSA near Pasig River

In a 23.8 kilometer-long semicircle, EDSA leads through some of the most densely populated parts of Metro Manila, from Caloocan City in the north to Pasay City, near Manila Bay in the south. It further connects (from north to south) the cities of Quezon, Mandaluyong, San Juan, and Makati. Many major HotSpots, malls, and business districts are located along the way.

One fine Saturday I felt the urge to leave Makati behind and go up north of the Megacity, where you find some green oases such as the campus of UP Diliman and the Quezon Circle. Traffic on EDSA was quite heavy, so I decided to take the the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) for the first time.
