You’ll touch down at the Manila Ninoy Aquino where you’ll be able to transfer to your hotel.
Getting to and from Manila airport
Without a railway option, taking a yellow taxi cab is the easiest way to get to your accommodation. Check if your hotel has a transfer service or exit the terminal to find the taxi pickup zone right in front of you. Make sure you choose a yellow cab – although they are a little more expensive, they won’t try to cheat you or sell you tours.
The trip will take 30 minutes to one hour (depending on traffic) to Makati or Malate in the city. Expect to pay around 200 pesos (just under 3 pounds).
Where to stay in Manila
Compliment your business class flights to Manila with a stay at one of the city’s top hotels. The Manila Hotel pioneered the luxury industry in Manila. With gorgeous Filipiniana-style decor, four internationally acclaimed restaurants and marble bathrooms to die for, it’s no wonder it remains one of the most popular hotels in the city.
Inside the Resorts World Complex, the Maxims Hotel is where high rollers come to hang out and have some fun. With all the amenities you’d expect and a casino just next door, you’ll be sure to have a grand time! The hotel has an airport shuttle service and is close to the airport.
Things to do in Manila
Although many use Manila as a gateway to the rest of the Philippines, don’t overlook the incredible sights and activities this capital city has to offer.
By Horse Carriage – A remnant of colonial Spain, Intramuros is a neighbourhood that stands out among the Asian architecture. Explore its streets via a horse carriage tour or simply stroll around.
Friday Mass – Head to Quiapo Church to marvel at its imposing architecture and storm of street vendors. Pick up souvenirs at the nearby Quiapo Market.
Choose your Seafood – Try your hand at Dampa Seafood Markets. Head Diosdado Macapagal Blvd (near Manila Bay), take your pick of fresh, wholesale seafood and get a nearby restaurant to cook it up for you!
