Maybe it’s heartbreak, lovers’ quarrel, or just one of those days where you feel like the only single person in a world filled with couples. Or maybe, it’s just been an overwhelming day, week, life. There are plenty of reasons why someone would want to have a good cry, out for the world to see. When that time comes, we’ve compiled a short list of places where you can cry your heart out. Where you won’t get judged, or mugged.

Place #1: Ayala Triangle Gardens

Smack in the middle of hustle and bustle Makati, time seems to slow down in this spacious city garden. Here, one can take their time to go through the motions of their emotions without the rush of city life.

They’re open all days of the week, from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Just take note of their guidelines.

Place #2: Eastwood Cinema

Sometimes, people need the excuse of a tear-jerking movie to allow themselves a cry in public. This cinema offers you that, as well as cool air-conditioning and the most comfortable cinema seats there ever was. Be comfortable while seeking comfort, and chance a relatively empty screening if you really want to let it all out.

Catch their last full show, and seat back on their reclining rocker seats

Place #3: National Museum

There’s something romantic about letting the tears flow while being surrounded by masterpieces. In the national museum, you can experience this for free. We recommend Isabelo L. Tampinco’s sculpture exhibition to maximise the melancholia.

They’re open Tuesdays to Sundays, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Admission is free.

Place #4: Point-to-Point bus

What they said about having the deepest thoughts while looking out of bus windows is true. Catch a ride and have a silent existential crisis on one of their double-decker, yellow buses. For sure, there won’t be any loud conductors or rude passengers to interrupt you along the way.

Catch one other longer routes to Trinoma for only P55, they have terminals scattered all over the metro

Bonus: Shell gas station toilet in Bohol 

Fair enough, a bathroom is arguably not that public, especially this luxurious gas station bathroom that only allows one person at a time. But, there’s still something about having a quick cry while surrounded by the sound of cars and people. As far as we’re concerned, this little bathroom is still something to consider when you’re looking for a quiet but public place for a quiet cry.

This exceptional gas station bathroom can be found at J.A. Clarin Street, Tagbilaran City, near HNU High School entrance
