sakay ka ng jeep "Yale-Cubao".

from Makati, may mga buses sa Buendia, daan ng Taft yata... sorry 2 years ago ko pa nagawa yun. basta sumakay ako sa may DFA/Hyatt papuntang Quiapo.

meron din mga FX papuntang Quiapo galing Makati.

kung pupunta ka ng Intramuros from Cubao:
Fastest Way: 1Hour
sakay ka ng LRT (yung bagong gawa) sa Cubao (malapit sa Gateway mall), tapos baba ka ng RECTO STATION.

pagkababa mo ng RECTO station, lakad ka papuntang QUIAPO (malapit na yun dun) --- tapos sakay ka ng JEEP na TAFT or MABINI tapos sabihin mo ibaba ka sa CITY HALL - tapos yun.. sa tapat nun INTRAMUROS na.

Slowest Way: 2-3 Hours depending on Traffic
sa Cubao, sakay ka ng MABINI, TAFT na Jeep, tapos sabihin mo baba ka ng City Hall -- ayun na.

Dapat sakyan mo yung jeep biyaheng PIER either galing Sta Cruz na dumadaan sa harap ng Post Office, or galing Quiapo that turns right after descending the bridge.

Tapos baba ka sa tapat ng Manila Cathedral, opposite nun is Fort Santiago. If you walk through the streets beside Manila Cathedral, you are going deep inside Intramuros.

pinakamadali yung kay plasticbug.

from makati, ride to taft and board the LRT and go down at Carriedo Station.  Walk towards Escolta or Sta. Cruz Church.  On the other side of the street, may mga jeep na biyaheng Pier which passes in front of Manila Cathedral and Fort Santiago.

From Cubao, Ride the LRT3 then alight at Avenida Station.  You can either walk towards Tomas Mapua Street  or Quezon Boulevard. Medyo malayo-layong lakad on both ways pero mas malapit yata yung Quezon Boulevard / Raon and either way, you can ride a "Pier" jeep.

use the underpass to get to puerto real, or intramuros gate. there you can ride pedicabs to Fort Santiago.

You have three choices to enter Intramuros if you are coming from the Manila City hall. The golf course you see is the Muni Golf Links that wraps around Intramuros.

- Enter through the gate that will lead you to Lyceum of the Philippines. I forgot the street but after emerging from the gate, if you turn left (edit) and walk further you'll end up  at Mapua and the Manila Bulletin building. Walk further and you'll see the DOLE building and Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila.

- One street leads you to Letran College and McDo

- The third one is that street where the National Press Club and Bureau of Immigration are located up. It also the street nearest to Jones bridge. Follow this street and you'll see a Starbucks (left) near the old Treasury building and BI (right). Follow the street (left or right) past the old hulk and you'll see the BF Condo on the left and Jollibee on the right. There's also a small park with a monument about the Galleon trade or something. Well, konting lakad pa at nasa Manila Cathedral ka na.
