5 hours at Manila Intl Airport

by SueBeeHunee

I will have roughly 5 hours layover in Manila before I have to leave for the US. Is that enough time to check out Manila Bay, Luneta Park & Intramuros which I understand are all within walking distance of one another? What's the best way to do this? Someone suggested taking a cab & tipping the driver $100.
Appreciate your input.
Thanks!

Re: 5 hours at Manila Intl Airport

I'm often in a similar situation in Manila.

$100 is big money in the Philippines if you're talking U.S. money. You can do it for much less than that.

As taxis are two a penny in Manila, I suggest you DON'T hire one for the entire excursion. Just grab one on the street as the need arises. Start with Intramuros and see how the time goes. In my opinion, you shouldn't try to tackle too much - Intramuros may well be enough. There's a lot to see there.

One factor you MUST figure in is Manila traffic. The amount of time it will take to get back to the airport is not predictable, so you will have to start back in good time or risk missing your flight.

Travel Tips for Manila

CASA MANILA of Intramuros!

by kylian74

It's a museum of Filipino-hispanic architecture. This complex/museum containing furniture of late 19'th and 20'th century, aside from furniture you can see also those things that can be seen in a house originally made and antique style from the old days, it is all unique and well preserved, along the way going to the second floor, there were three ladies in the stairs sitting and wearing "Kimona" national filipino dress! they are there to maintain the house as well to guide YOU! My best memory of Manila....the ambiance, Manila as always crowded and people on the move! the busy streets with vendors of different kinds of product in the 'University belt' Recto Avenue to Quipo. I also miss my fellow friendly filipinos who gives you smile whenever you enter any stablishments, even along the way and sometimes talked to each other., the typical filipino ways can hardly find in other country although of course THERE ARE.

Manila is a massive modern City

by mlt_t

Manila is a massive modern city, which plays host to just about all the attraction you’d expect to find in a major metropolis. Not only is it a highly cultured town with a varied program of events, including opera, ballet, concerts and recitals by local and foreign artists, but its various theatres also offer English and Tagalog plays, dances and musicals. In fact music is the main form of entertainment in Manila and some unusual groups can be seen, such as the Pangwat Kawayan bamboo orchestra and the Rondalla group. But there is much more than music.
If quiet away from the town, then remember that the Philippines have the world’s longest coastline and are rich in superb beaches.

The Good Ol' Despedida

by wreckloose

In the past, my despedida (or going-away party) usually involves me buying/cooking a whole ton of food OR taking family and friends to a restaurant and paying for the entire tab. I know this seems weird (and maybe I'm the only person that does it), but in my family it's perfectly normal for us to throw ourselves a going away party. Not that we need an excuse to get fall-down drunk and to eat ourselves stupid, but parties are always so much more fun.

6. Eating at Foodstalls

by Ric

Eating at open-air, night foodstalls may be picturesque, but do so at your own risk. You may not have the antibodies that protect most Manilenyos! The problem is not the food preparation, but the way eating utensils are 'washed' for the next customer...

this ain't antartica!

by uysijessa

if you're making manila you're base and still plan to go to the other islands you could probably bring a small or medium-sized bag or backpack for those few items you want to bring rather than dragging your whole suitcase from one place to the next. pack light clothes all the time! this ain't antartica. unless you wanna suffer from heat stroke and faint from having too many clothes on, best to bring just some light shirts, jeans or shorts, sneakers and slippers and a few dressy items (in case you plan on dining out or enjoying the nightlife). a light jacket would probably help in case you plan to go to baguio or tagaytay but other than that there's really no need for the winter gear in my town. do bring an umbrella if you're travelling during the rainy season (that's end of may until november).
