MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Who needs to go to Brazil to visit the Amazon rainforest? Tourists can now have that experience in the Philippines, just by riding the MRT, Metro Manila’s light railway system.
Today, MRT officials unveiled the world’s first tropical rainforest-themed train. Lucky commuters who were picked through a lottery experienced the inaugural ride from Quezon City to Makati, drenched in refreshing water that poured from the train’s ceiling.
“They should have thought about this sooner, ” one commuter said, adding, “It is a great way to beat the hot and humid weather and remain fresh and cooled upon reaching your destination.”
The lucky commuters were given complimentary towels with the logo of the Office of the President at the exits.
During the train’s regular runs, however, commuters have to bring their own towels.
