3. Secure Your Parking
With plenty of parking options around the venue, finding a spot for your car should be a breeze. But, to make your experience even smoother, I recommend arriving early to score a slot closer to the grounds.

It would be ideal to arrive at least an hour and a half. And if it gets too hot, you can take a short stroll and chill at some restaurants around Harbor Square.

Public pay parking is also available at the World Trade Center, Sofitel Philippine Plaza, and PICC near the venue.

4. Use Google Maps for a Hassle-Free Commute

It will take place at the iconic CCP Grounds, J.W. Diokno Blvd, Pasay, Metro Manila. If you’re unfamiliar with this place, Google Maps is your best friend. You only need to pin the location, add your address, and click the “Transit” or the “Best travel modes” icon.
