Ninoy Aquino International Airport to Subic Bay

by Soubhagini

Hi, I'm Soubhagini from Malaysia.

1st of all, I would like to inquire about any public transportation (& approximately how much it costs) directly from NAIA to Subic Bay (my husband & I would like to visit to Ocean Adventure -> mainly for the swimming with Dolphin activity). Most likely we'll be arriving at NAIA early in the morning, like 5:30 or 6 o'clock.
We're thinking of a day trip to Ocean Adventure before get back to Manila city center, do you think it's possible?
If it's, then the next day, we'll roam around city area.
& head to Tagaytay the day after, to spend a night or two.?
Any suggestions of where (& how) to travel in Philippines to get the most out of a week trip? (We like nature & animals, & we would like the trip worth every penny we spent).

Besides Ocean Adventure, we're wondering is there other location (nearby to Taal volcano) where we can swim with Dolphins? (Yes, Dolphin :-))

If to travel into Philippines, Clark Manila airport or NAIA, which one would you recommend?
& we're looking at traveling in August, is it a good time in terms of the weather? I know August is rainy season, but is the rain last for long or we still can go ahead to do some activities?

Your precious time & attention is very much appreciated.

Regards,
Soubhagini

Ocean Adventure (SBMA) is about 3-3.5 hours trip from the airport. From the airport, take a cab to Victory Liner Pasay City terminal. There are aircon buses that leave almost every hour for Olongapo City (if you can catch a bus that will pass through SCTex, better as it can cut down travel time by 40 mins or so). From Olongapo, take a jeep that goes to SBMA gate and from there, I think there are shuttle buses that go to Ocean Adventure.

I would suggest spending the night in SBMA. Return to Manila the next day for your city tour. Then Tagaytay for a day or overnight trip.

Clark is closer to Subic than Manila, but if you want to tour Manila and Tagaytay, might as well land at the NAIA.

As suggested above, you could opt to land at Clark so that Ocean Adventure will just be 1.5 hrs. away. The problem with that option is there's no regular public transportation that shuttles between the airport and Subic. Besides, you wish to visit OA only for the day then head off to Manila. If that's what you really want to do, I suggest you land in Manila, arrange for a rental car to pick you up and take you straight to Subic/OA, then bring you back to Manila afterwards. Taking the bus can be done but the round trip will take longer and be more tiring for you especially after a flight, unless you decide to spend the night in Camayan resort (right beside OA). Incidentally, if you wish to see other animals, you could also visit Zoobic (http://www.zoobic.com.ph/) which is along the road to OA.

There are no dolphins in/around Tagaytay or Taal Lake unfortunately, besides the volcano is showing signs of activity at the moment. But if you wish to see (but not swim with) dolphins you could do so in Bohol. Along Panglao beach there are boat operators who could offer you trips to see dolphins swimming along the boat. And Bohol happens to be the home of the endangered tarsier which you could see up close.

Travel Tips for Manila

Visit Fort Santiago,
Manila...

by ligaya

Visit Fort Santiago,
Manila Philippines; According to the Department of Tourism, Fort Santiago used to be the seat of the colonial powers of both Spain and the U.S. It was also a dreaded prison under the Spanish regime and the scene of countless military police atrocities during the Japanes occupation. Here, too, Dr. Jose Rizal spent his last hours before his execution on Bagumbayan (now Rizal Park).

This site and the surrounding area of Intramuros is really a must see in Manila. It is very well preserved and restoration is also going on. The Rizal museum inside the fort is very interesting. Also the churches in Intramuros - the Manila Cathedral and San Agustin church should also be in one's itinerary. There are also some wonderful restaurants in Intramuros.

When to Go

by mlt_t

With maximum temperatures hovering above 30°C (86°F), Manila isn't the place to go to cool off. There are two seasons: the dry season lasts from December to May; the rest of the year is sodden with heavy rain. From June to November you might find yourself in a typhoon. The best time to visit Manila and surrounds is February to April. If you like some cool places for SWIMMING, SCUBA DIVING, MOUNTAIN CLIMBING, SURFING, BIKINI WATCHING and more go to our beautiful beaches in our country. You will never regret it ‘coz we have also the finest and beautiful beaches.

Buko juice

by Djinn76

Once you reach the countrside, you'll find plenty of different vendors (flower, plants, fruit, food,...) along the road...

A 'buko' is in fact a young coconut, apparently a speciality from the area is to drink its juice directly out of the nut!!

This farmer was also selling other products. Lambanog was one of them, this is an alcool made of coconut, this was supposed to be 70% vol alcool but after having tasted it, I strongly doubt it...

Bibingka! A Must Eat!

by machomikemd

bibingka is a Popular Filipino Cake, it was originally eaten only during the christmas season wherever the Dawn Masses (Misa De Gallo) would start but it spread in it's popularity that it is available today all year round. It is available into 3 types, the Bibingka made with Flour, The Bibingka Galapong, Made with Rice Flour and the Cassava Bibingka, made with rootcrop Cassava. It is also popular in Goa in India, East Timor and Macau where it is known as Bebinca. In the portugese version it is made with flour plus Ghee (a kind of indian butter).

In the Filipino method of preparation, rice flour or wheat flour is used and sliced salted duck eggs plus quesong puti, a semi-soft white cheese made from carabao's milk (similar to bufala mozzarella) are added into the batter before baking (the baking process is similar to that of the bebinca). Before being served, butter or margarine is spread and sugar is sprinkled over the bibingka. It is typically served with grated coconut.

baking the bibingka is no small matter. the batter is poured into a clay pot or coconut shell lined with banana leaf--the leaf is there to make it easier to lift the bibingka out, but it also imparts a wonderful aroma to the cake. the pot is placed on small clay coal-fired oven, and then a metal tray covered with more of the hot coal is placed on top of the pot, and the cake is carefully watched for a few minutes until it has gently risen, the cheese has melted, and the top has browned and blistered. once out, the leaf-lined cake is wrapped up in more banana leaves to keep it warm and toasty; then some newspaper, with a generous bag of grated coconut wrapped within, a final bind of twine and you are sent on your merry little way.

Via Mare Restaurant makes the best Bibingka!

MOSQUITO REPELLENT!!!!!!!!

by wreckloose

You'll probably want to bring two luggage and your carry-on. Whether or not you have enough clothes to pack into the luggage is irrelevant because when you get to the Philippines, you might just realize that you'll be coming home with a lot more than you arrived with. The cheap shopping will really do a number on you, trust me. slippers, sandals, rain coat or waterproof jacket in the summer (typhoon season). shorts, and tshirts. short sleeve button up shirts and khaki pants are a smart bet for going out at night. Keep in mind, if you intend on buying clothes when you're there, sizes are smaller than you would expect. A Filipino Large is somewhere near the equivalent of a North American Medium. I guess it has something to do with the average North American being overweight haha. Skin astringent is essential due to the heavy (and I mean HEAVY) automobile exhaust pollution. You'll also want to bring a lot of OFF Lotion for the mosquitos as well as AFTERBITE if you happen to get bit. Polysporin is good for any cuts as well as rubbing alcohol to disinfect wounds. The Philippines can be very dirty so you'll want to keep any open wounds clean and covered. Digital, film and video cameras are all nice... just make sure you know when and when not to use them. Sometimes people don't like to be filmed, especially in the squatter areas. Be mindful of any suspicious areas as well as snatchers are everywhere.
