Traffic congestions have dependably been a piece of experience in Metro Manila, even for those who are just tourists in the big city. Everybody has their thoughts of what should be possible to mitigate this issue; however, the answer to the traffic crisis requires collaboration from each road user in the metro. We can accomplish until further notice is to set our schedule as needed and destress with a portion of the proposals below to endure Manila traffic.
Put on a playlist of all the most blazing bangers
The surge hour Manila traffic will make you need to hit your head into the steering wheel, so you should have a head-slamming playlist to finish the experience. There is no better way to manage the three-hour long traffic congestion than to release your disappointment through the intensity of your vocal cords shaking out to your preferred tunes in your show.
Update your socials
While Instagram remains a point of convergence around which quite a bit of our Internet life lives rotates, the dormant condition of an 8 a.m. automobile overload likely isn’t the spot to catch dilettantish shots. It is the ideal setting to take part in Snapchat and vent your disappointment at your mobile phone’s front camera. Don’t lose it if they at long last achieve their goal and all of a sudden your car narratives become the least of their stresses.
Forgot to download that playlist and your mobile battery is biting the dust? Dread not, because there are a great many billboard ads to be perused along the way while in rush hour gridlock. Go old fashioned and read those billboards like how you read the back of a cleanser bottle while you’re on the position of royalty, well before cell phones and tablets were created.
Give your mind a chance to run wild
It is an ideal opportunity to contemplate on the genuine importance of life than amidst a boisterous road turned parking lot, without a doubt! Connect with your inner Socrates and philosophize about the probability of a parallel universe, ideally one that has never known about Manila traffic. Appreciate a charming stream of reflections, and possibly your creative energy and thoughts may deliver something deserving of an introduction at the next meeting!
Groove the blues away with a moving traffic master
In case you’re sufficiently blessed to recognize a moving traffic implementer while you’re out and about, at that point you’re in for a show. Draw out your camera telephones because their sweet schedules make the ideal augmentations to your Snapchat story.
In light of every one of these tips and recommendations, ideally, the experience of being gotten in a car influx turns out to be even the scarcest piece increasingly middle of the road for you.
I hate being stuck in traffic but music always makes it better
These are great ideas to keep you from getting bored while on a routine trip. Thank you for sharing. My favorite is “groove the blues away.”
Yes, you say so!
Podcasts are great to listen to to get through traffic time too – you learn so much in your car~
Podcasts too, learning while driving 🙂
Great tourist tips
Thanks for comin’ over!
Bill board is one of the thing that always attract customers love the content
Keep the eyes busy. Thanks for the visit 🙂
Great pieces of advice! “To connect with your inner Socrates” was my favorite because we often don’t have too much time to just think, relaxed…
True that, and just relax, not to be affected by traffic congestions. Thanks by the way
as someone who avoids going to manila (cause of the traffic), love the “give your mind the chance to run wild” bit
Yes, you have to do something right? 🙂
Hirap sa Manila, sobra na talaga traffic. Oh my God! travelling in Manila is so ehausting!
Sinabi mo, Oscar! Exhausting is the word!
Traffic is really painful. I often read books to utilize time.
Yes, when you are with a driver or the passenger, books can help 🙂
Hahaha Metro Manila needs to decongest. Remove all those squatters there and the problem would be gone.
Saan dadalhin squatters kaya heheh
Oh boy! I don’t like traffic at all
I think everyone doesn’t like traffic at all 🙂
Music can soothe my mood almost instantly. When stuck in traffic, mostly I close my eyes and listens to music.
Yes, same and do karaoke while on the road LOL
Just like in Lebanon, although we don’t have a metro, but traffic is a killer here!
Anyway, keep it up!
Same scenario? Thanks also 🙂
Traffic is always awful, no matter where in the world you are! I think music works but lately, I’ve been listening to audiobooks instead. This way, I get some “reading” done and I can use this frustrating time in a more productive way!
Great to hear, yes audiobooks and podcasts..
I should share this post with my brother in law who does a daily 3 hours commute. That’s a great post.
Surest! Thanks 🙂
Hahaha. I know this too well.?
Grooving to the blues was my favorite! Music always seemed to make traffic a little more bearable. Thankfully, I don’t have to deal with it too much anymore
Glad you are done with it 🙂
I’m from Delhi India, I know what traffic is and I have actually used some of the points mentioned above. This survival guide definitely a good read, it will help you later.
True. Thanks for visiting!
