Travel time to airport


I have a morning flight from Manila to Tagbilaran at 8.30am. How much time should I allocate for the taxi ride from Best Western Hotel given the normal traffic on a Friday morning?

In my estimate, best is to leave your hotel not later than 6:15am.

by npamo

if u have to be at the airport which is usually 2 hours before the flight (6:30 AM), you should allot about 30-45 mins travel time (5:45 to 6:00 AM). if you are taking cebu pacific air, ask the driver to go via south super (osmeña) highway and take the skyway exiting off at the airport exit. there is still no toll fee for that portion of the skyway. that should cut your travel time.

For Malaysia citizen, you need not to apply travel Visa so long your stay in Philippines is not exceeding 21 days. This will translate into lower cost of traveling to Philippines and probably can buy few jugs of beer or 1 dive with that money.

Chinese New Year Is a Big Deal in Manila

by AKtravelers

I traveled to Manila over the Chinese New Year period, arriving on the morning of Chinese New Year's Eve. While I figured that there would be some interest in the holiday given the Chinese ancestry of some Filipinos, I had no idea how big.
The first sign was our carriage ride around Old Manila, which took us into Chinatown on New Year's Eve. The place was wall-to-wall people, many setting off fireworks or dressed in dragon costumes. Unfortunately, the low lighting and bouncing of the carriage prevented many of my pictures from coming out.
Then, two nights later, we were invited to a boisterous Chinese New Year's party at the Heritage Hotel. There were about 300 people there, all dressed nicely and enjoying the food and drink provided (starting two hours late, of course). The party was outside around the pool, which wasn't used except for a place to float a large Chinese dog (it was the year of the dog). A line of tables was set up upon which was laid the longest salad ever constructed in Manila. All the guests were then given chopsticks and asked to toss the salad in the air -- the higher the better for good luck. Of course, salad got everywhere and all over everyone. After the salad tossing was done, a 20-minute fireworks barrage took place both overhead and riding up flagpoles behind the stage. We had to cover our drinks as remnants of the deafening pyrotechnics fell everywhere. Watching the spectacle silently -- it was too loud to speak -- I made the observation that I have never been to a party where the guests were both so well-dressed and covered with so many vegetables and fireworks casings. It was a bizarre sight.

Philippine Climate

by machomikemd

The Philippines has a tropical climate with relatively abundant rainfall and gentle winds. There are three pronounced seasons: the wet or rainy season from June to October; the cool or dry season from November to February; and the hot or dry season from March to May.

The Philippines is located just above the equator on the upper torrid zone of the globe. Thus, the country experiences an average temperature ranging from 24¢ª Celsius (about 75¢ª Fahrenheit) to 31¢ª Celsius (about 88¢ª Fahrenheit) and humidity varies from 70% to 85% depending on the time of year. The warm and humid climate all year round accounts for one of the healthiest tropical climates. There are two distinct seasons: wet and dry. The time of year for each season depends upon the local climate in each region. In Baguio, the ¡°summer capital¡± of the Philippines, temperature averages 18.3¢ª Celsius (or 65¢ª Fahrenheit). Nights all over the country are decidedly cold in the months of December and January.

The different parts of the country experience varied weather conditions because of the general air streams that cross the islands: the northeast monsoon that moves from north to east from October to January; the trade winds that come from the tropical high-pressure area of the Pacific from February to April; the southwest monsoon that originates from the tropical high-pressure area below the equator from May to September.

Typhoons may occur anytime of the year, but their peak of occurrence coincides with the rainy season. The number, path, and strength of typhoons differ each year. They are measured by signals according to strength and length. An average of 25 typhoons comes each year to different regions of the country.

Visit a Church

by D._Pepper

Locals visit at least seven churches on Holy Thursday and Good Friday before Easter. If you're in town and want to feel some of the local flavor, this is a must do. Some churches are architecturally beautiful, and seeing the parade of people church hopping is very interesting!
