~ this is a Calesa. It's a horse driven carriage.
Back in the 18th century, this was the mode of transportation for the spaniards or the illustrados as they would call it.
But nowadays, locals near the downtown area are still using it and also in places like luneta or intramuros where tourists can go for a ride.

  1. I discovered that there are lots of them in Binondo too. So many in fact that you have to carefully watch where you're walking! ;)

  2. Great photo - what a handsome looking carriage! How much for an hour ride? I want to take a tour in such a carriage!


thanks for sharing your thoughts! :)
