Metro Manila - My 1st PNR Train Experience

In November 2007, when I started working in Makati, I always pass by the PNR railways located in Buendia. I've been wanting to try it and feel how is it to ride one of the Philippines' oldest means of transportation.

The long wait is over... It was March 21, 2010 when I first experienced it. I was in Bicutan going to Buendia, eh mahirap mag-bus papunta ng Makati, so I decided na pumunta sa station ng PNR para nga ma-try ko na cya. Kahit magisa lang ako, the experience is worth remembering. It was more than I expected, the train is fully airconditioned, and compared to the trains that LRT and MRT has, it is much bigger. It is also relatively fast, it only took me about 15-20 minutes to reach Buendia station.

You gotta try it as well and experience how it is to ride the traditional trains.

How I wish I could also try the older trains that they have. Yung walang air-con tsaka nabubulok na... Hehehe!!! Wala na yata yun, or di ko lang matyempuhan...

Sa susunod, yung Pasig River Cruise naman...

  5. They even have train rides going to Bicol. I tried PNR when I visited Bicol last November. You may check this link for more information about train rides going to Bicol via PNR.


  6. nung nakasakay ako dito nung college, yung lumang PNR pa. As in pwede ka tumalon palabas ng tren parang action star. kasi nakabukas yung pinto.

    1. They still have those... pero twice a day nalang yata, during rush hours...

  7. hahaha....I'm also a PNR rider during my college days...from blum. to PUP-sta.mesa...due to limited baon...kailangan mag train para tipid at mabilis...kaya lang may mga houses pa nun sa tabi ng riles...kung swerte ka for that day...mararanasan mo mabato ng plastic na may lamang ihi....yaak...can't forget those days...

  8. I have to try this! I'm from Las Pinas but I haven't even gone to Alabang's PNR station yet. I will ride PNR hopefully in one Bicol trip.

    Thanks for this!
