Feature: Kalesa

I have already showed you on my previous post the "King Of The Road" or the Jeepney as one of the primary and cheapest means of getting around certain places here in the Philippines. but before the Jeepneys ruled the Philippine Roads and Avenues. there were Kalesa first or internationally famous as Horse Carriage they were dub as 18th century Rolls Royce by the Spanish. it is the mode of transport of the who's who in the society back then and only the high society people can afford the luxury and comfort of the Kalesa. when the Spaniards leave the Philippines. filipino make a way to reinvent these sophisticated rides to cater everyone in the society. it was then become as the primary modes of transport in the Philippines long before the Jeepney and taxi came. now Kalesa are rarely used in the streets but dont worry kalesa are here to stay but only on some of the tourist spots and province here in the Philippines you can still find the Kalesa in Intramuros Manila,Binondo,Vigan,Angeles City and Iligan City. it is a good way to get around the tourist spots in Manila such as The Fort Santiago,Intramuros,Manila Cathedral and many more. the standard rate for a Kalesa ride is like 250 pesos(around $5) but its better to negotiate with the Cochero (the Kalesa Driver) before jumping in so you wont have any problem after the ride.
