Arriving in the Philippines

Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila is the main international hub for flights to the Philippines, although there are several other airports within the archipelago. This is a more crowded facility that can be somewhat challenging to navigate, but there are convenient shuttles for travelling between terminals. Many budget airlines offering cheap flights to the Philippines fly into Ninoy. The airport banks offer foreign exchange and cash machines, and there is a convenient post office for passengers. Duty-free shops are available on both of the departure and arrival levels, and there are a number of stores, restaurants and cafés. There is Wi-Fi access in the Mabuhay Lounge and in both wings of terminal 2 so you can browse the Internet whilst waiting for your Philippines flights.

Getting Around the Philippines

To leave the airport there are a number of options if you did not arrange transportation through your hotel or when you booked your airfare to the Philippines. You can use taxis, buses, trains, shuttles, and “jeepneys” to get out of the airport. Both yellow and white taxis have metered fares on top of a “flagdown fee”, but you can hire special flat-rate taxis by requesting them at an information counter. To get around the city you have access to taxis, but there is a risk of getting overcharged for fares. Make sure the driver starts the metre and only pay the metre fare. The cheapest mode of travel is the bus, which is very popular for travelling across the islands. Jeepneys are very cheap but meant only for short distances. Ferries are also cheap methods to get around Manila by water.

Philippines Main Attractions

The beaches are very popular for visitors who enjoy scuba diving or sunbathing. There are a number of festivals that tourists enjoy like the Hot Air Balloon Festival held every year in Pampanga. Outdoors enthusiasts will enjoy activities like diving, caving, kayaking, and rock climbing. People who want to explore the culture and history of the Philippines will love the practice of Visita Iglesia, where one can visit various churches, temples and shrines to view the art and architecture of these ancient sites. There are amazing Baroque churches in Manila as well. An historical site of interest is Intramuros, a walled city in the oldest area of Manila.

Philippines Shopping, Dining and Night Life

The three largest shopping malls in the world are located in the Philippines, and you can buy most consumer goods there at bargain prices. Popular local goods in this country are antiques, brassware, embroidery, wood carvings, and mats. You will find great prices on silver and pearl jewellery as well. Philipino cuisine is a blend of Chinese, Spanish, Malay and European influences. Many dishes, such as chicken adobo, are cooked in soy sauce and plenty of garlic. Most local cuisine is stir-fried, grilled, or toasted, and you will find a lot of dishes made with dried fish as well as noodles. The metro area of Manila has a large selection of bars, pubs and Karaoke lounges. Alcohol is really cheap, but if you do not drink spirits, you can enjoy local juices, coffees, teas, and chocolate drinks.
