How to commute to Pearl of the Orient Tower?
From Taft – Padre Faura intersection
Anywhere along Taft Avenue, ride a jeepney and disembark at Padre Faura. The corners of Padre Faura and Taft Avenue include Philippine General Hospital, Supreme Court, and Manila Science High School. If you are coming from Baclaran or Pasay, board a jeepney on the northbound side of Taft Avenue. If you are coming from Divisoria area or Rizal Avenue, board a jeepney with “Pedro Gil”, “Vito Cruz” and/or “Buendia” in the signage.
Note that Padre Faura St. is between two LRT stations: UN Avenue and Pedro Gil. If you prefer to take the LRT, you might need to disembark at either of these stations. Then ride a jeepney on the northbound side of Taft if you are coming from LRT Pedro Gil station and on the southbound side if you are coming from LRT UN Avenue station. You can walk from these stations to Padre Faura but it will be quite a long walk.
Upon disembarking, ride a jeepney along Padre Faura with either “Bukid” or “Sta. Ana” in the signage. The jeepney will then move along Padre Faura passing by Supreme Court, Robinson’s Place Ermita, among other landmarks. When the jeepney turn left, alight from it and continue walking along Padre Faura until you reach Roxas Boulevard. Then, turn right and you will see the Pearl of the Orient Tower.
From Manila City Hall
For those coming from Quiapo and España Avenue, some of the jeepneys might not travel up to Padre Faura. An alternative way is to ride a jeepney from the jeepney stop along Padre Burgos Ave. adjacent to the walls of Intramuros and across Manila City Hall. These jeepneys have “Mabini” and/or “Harrison Plaza” in their signages. You don’t really need to disembark at Manila City Hall since these jeepneys also pass by Quiapo and España, but in case you missed them, this is where they are easy to catch.
This route may also be an alternative for those coming from Divisoria or Rizal Ave. Just disembark in front of Manila City Hall and use the underpass to go to the other side in front of the walls of Intramuros.
Board one of these jeepneys and it will traverse the roads Padre Burgos, Maria Y. Orosa, Kalaw, and then turn left to M. H. Del Pilar St. M. H. Del Pilar St. intersects Padre Faura but I do not know of any noticeable landmark that would indicate it so just inform the driver to drop you at Padre Faura St. Upon disembarking at Padre Faura St., walk along it towards Roxas Blvd. Then, turn right and you will see the Pearl of the Orient Tower.
