This year's hybrid Art Fair PH invites art enthusiasts, lovers, and collectors alike to different locations around Metro Manila, as well as some participating galleries outside NCR. This might be overwhelming to some. A private car is the best option for ease of transfer but commute routes are also available. Don't forget also to hydrate yourself from time to time and eat in between your visits. Also, most galleries would have health and safety precautionary measures in light of the ongoing pandemic. Be sure to follow these protocols and be prepared in bringing your vaccination card or certificate, just in case.
