Grab Kalesa introduced by Grab Philippines. It is a free Kalesa ride for everyone. Kalesa is basically a horse drawn carriage and the old transportation in the Philippines. Grab is a mobile application for transportation in the Philippines with a services of GrabTaxi, GrabCar and GrabExpress.
The last time I ride Kalesa was 15 years ago, and I am glad to try this again for free, thanks Grab! Kalesas are mostly found in Intramuros, Manila. Normally when you ride kalesa it will roam you around the Intramuros and the Kutsero (Driver of Kalesa) will tell you the history of every places you’ll encounter. Intramuros is the oldest part of Manila, the buildings and churches erected there was very historical. It is not my first time to roam around intramuros and heard the story behind it, but it is very refreshing when Kuya Danilo Gonzales, the kutsero tell its history.
How to get a free Kalesa ride?
- Download the Grab App
- Go to Plaza Roma Fountain (Grab Kalesa is a 2 days event, August 20-21, 2016 from 2 PM – 5 PM, so you still have tomorrow to try. 🙂 )

This is a great experience specially for millennials. Thanks also to Kuya Danilo Gonzales for a refreshing ride. 🙂
