How to Commute to Okada Manila and SM MOA for Free

How to Commute to Okada Manila and SM MOA for Free

Last weekend after I attended this exhibition at SMX Convention Center, I decided to visit Okada Manila and grab some coffee. I was ready to dare myself to have a long walk, then I realized the sun is still smiling to be brightly and I don’t have a shield with me.

Next option is to take a GRABCAR however, I’m having a difficulty of getting my car due to high demand. Well, I did something new this time.

I’m not sure if everyone knows it but I want you to share, how to commute or travel for free!
So from SMX Convention Center, I went straight to SM Mall of Asia, and wait for a free shuttle going to Okada Manila. The waiting area is next to this pet store named Pet Express.

The trip schedule from SM Moa to Okada Manila is every 30-minutes which is awesome. After 30 to 40-minutes of waiting (due to traffic) Okada’s free shuttle have arrive.

However, I don’t have an OKADA Manila’s membership card.

Luckily, a good Kuya guard told me that non-members can still avail the free shuttle, but they prioritized to hop for those who have their membership cards.

Numbers of passengers are just minimal and the shuttle was so spacious, and Kuya guard let me hop-in. Yey!

I like Okada’s free shuttle, the inside is very spacious and so clean! After few minutes we arrived at Okada Manila.

That is ONE FREE RIDE!

So to avoid any hassle, I went to Okada Manila’s membership area and applied for my membership card.

How to apply for Okada Manila’s Membership Card:

1). You must be on your legal age in order to have this card.

2). You’ll need to present any government issued identification (SSS, Postal ID, PRC ID, etc). Mine I presented my valid passport because this is the most powerful identification anywhere.

3). You’ll fill-up a membership form and sign it, they will take your photo, and viola – You have your Okada Manila’s membership card. It only takes less than 5minutes of processing.

4). Membership is free. You don’t have to pay anything. And your card will be your access card to all the games and amenities of Okada Manila. Of course, you’ll have to pay if you avail the games and amenities.


Why I availed the Okada Manila membership card?
I did this for FREE TRAVEL / Shuttle Service for all destination point they have. Plus, I occasionally visit Okada Manila for recreational purposes.
