Before jeepneys, Kalesas (or horse-drawn calashes) were used as the main mode of transportation. Back then, they were used by high-ranking officials in the Spanish era.
Today, you can hire one driven by local cocheros (coachmen) to enjoy a different way of exploring Manila’s streets and historical spot. They usually charge 350 pesos for 30 minutes.
They are usually found around famous tourist attractions like the National Museum, Rizal Park, and Roxas Boulevard. They might even be hanging around inside and outside the Intramuros.
