Metro Manila: Rail Cruisin’ From Blue to Yellow Line

   For A Day, We decided to visit the major malls in metro manila and other landmarks.  For us not to get lost, we just followed the MRT 3 stops and took the LRT 1 line going back to central station. It was a nice experience getting lost in the big city. Good thing we did not experience heavy traffic when we were there.

First Stop: Baclaran 

This is the Baclaran Redemptorist Church. It is located at the center of the very busy Baclaran district. When visiting the vicinity, always be alert and be aware of pickpockets.

We took a stroll going up to Baclaran MRT station, and poof!, the journey begins!

Second Stop: Ayala Station                                                              Glorietta


Makati is indeed a nice place to shop, window shop, or simply strolling.  You will see a lot businessmen here..

Third Stop:  Ortigas

SM Megamall   

 Cream Puffs anyone?!

Fourth Stop:  North Edsa                                                                           TriNoMa (Triangle of North Manila)  

SM North Edsa   

 Chow! =)

North Edsa is our last stop for MRT.  This time, we are going to take the yellow line, which is the older one.

From Roosevelt Station we headed straight to Central Station.   Manila City hall is one of the landmarks you can see near the central station. From Manila, we took FX back to get some rest. We ran out of time that day so we decided to visit our next itinerary the next day.

Next Destination:  Mall Of Asia   

Experiencing the MOA eye  

 MOA eye gives you a stunning bird’s eye view of the metropolis.

 Trip highlight: Julie Anne San Jose.. heheh..

 Dinner time at last!

Last Stop: Resorts World Manila  

We really had the time of our lives wandering the big city. It is also nice to explore a concrete jungle sometimes. You might be lucky enough to find something useful.

Get up, Stand up! On your feet now!

Karancho Beach Resort

 Karancho Beach is a family beach resort located in Maribago, Lapu-lapu City.  It is one of the white beaches that offers reasonable prices.  Among the three resorts within the area (Bluewater, White Sands, Karancho), Karancho is the cheapest so people with tight budgets will always choose Karancho beach.

How To Get There:  From Cebu City proper, if you are commuting, you can take a jeep bound for Mandaue (Highway Seno or Parkmall), and then take another jeep/multicab bound for Maribago.  It would take around 45 minutes travel from Mandaue, lesser if you would take a taxicab.  The resort is pretty much accessible from the international airport.

Amenities:  This resort has nothing much to offer when talking about the amenities, but the beach is good enough for the family. The resort has a great landscape.  These are the few things you can find in the resort:

Beach Volleyball 

Pets Allowed   This is a pet-friendly resort, so you can bring your cute little ones.

Karancho would be a good place to spend a day with your family.  Check the weather and your calendar for the tide, make sure tide is around 1.6 to 2.0 during daytime to enjoy swimming.
