There is a shuttle van that can take you to Robinson’s Mall for only P50 per person. We will take the matter up with the tricycle owners on the overcharging of P95 per person.

It's a pity that this wonderful Italian-inspired mansion built in the early 1900's was burned down during the WWII, reducing it to its actual skeletal frame. Old pictures of the house show how grandiose it was and beautiful inside. Nonetheless, while it has long ceased...More
