How to Get to PICC in Pasay

The address of the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) is Vicente Sotto Street in Pasay City, Metro Manila. The PICC building is located at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) complex and is just a few steps away from the location of Star City theme park. If you are facing the CCP building and coming from Roxas Boulevard, the road going to PICC is located on the left side of the CCP.

PICC is the go-to venue for PRC oath-taking ceremonies, university graduation ceremonies, and local and international conventions. Numerous awards nights of the prestigious Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Science Awards (FAMAS) were also held in the PICC plenary hall. In addition, the 43rd event of the Miss Universe pageant in 1994 also took place in PICC Plenary Hall.

There are several government offices that have a branch in the PICC building such as the satellite office of PRC, and the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office.

So, how to go to PICC? Going to PICC is quite easy even though it is not accessible to the usual public utility jeep. As I mentioned earlier, PICC is inside the CCP complex which is along Roxas boulevard where the usual public utility jeeps are off-limits. I may be wrong, but aside from private vehicles, the Orange colored jeeps are the only PUV that can roam around the CCP complex.
