Tranvia Jeepney in Luneta Park

It was only today when I realized that there is a tranvia/jeepney in Luneta Park. The ride costs 50 pesos per person (20 pesos per child) and the driver will take you around the vicinity of the Luneta Park, where Jose Rizal’s monument stands. At first, we thought that it’s a real tram wherein it passes through tracks. Eventually, we realized that it runs using a diesel engine. I really don’t know how to call it so I just labeled it as tranvia jeepney. 🙂 The tranvia has 2 separate coaches connected to each other so it really looks like a tranvia from afar.

I took a video of some of my blogger friends while riding the tranvia. It was a wonderful experience, and it made me feel like a child again. When you’re in Luneta Park, Manila, this is one thing you can do aside from strolling around or just take a rest in one of the benches there.

I stayed at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Hotel a few days ago to assist in the Philippine College of Physicians Annual convention. My stay was actually unexpected. I was first booked in a room together with two other ladies I’m working with. The photos here are from the room I stayed and shared with a new person. The first room I occupied was at the 7th floor and had two single beds. It has a much bigger bathroom. The TV table is connected to the ofice table.
