With a current passport, valid for 6 months, you may enter the Philippines without a visa for up to 21 days, which can be renewed for up to 59 days, but you must have a ticket showing your exit from the Philippines. There is an airport tax of P750 for international flights and P200 for domestic flights. In addition, depending on your visa status, you may be required to pay a rather substantial sum every time you exit the country.

Romantic Ambience and Superb Food!

by machomikemd about La Copa Restaurant

this is one of my favorite fine dining and romantic restaurants since time imemorial (but it gets to change locations often so when i go back to PI, i have look for it literally). This fine dining restaurant and Wine Bar started in the vicinity of the now defunct philippine village hotel in the 1990's, then shifted to the mall facing the domestic airport and is presently beside duty free philippines (or facing the Pagcor Casino). It's dark lit interiors and piano music provide a cozy and ROMANTIC ambiance and it doesn't stop there since what is a restaurant without good food right? the food is excellent and is moderately priced! their freshly baked pandesal (ironic since philippine version is sweet while pan de sal means salt bread in spanish!) is to die for and is complimentary!, you can have heaping serving of it for free! Next on the Menu is the Lobster Bisque which is really pumpkin soup with grated tomatoes, potatoes and pieces of lobster tail in it which is absolutely fantastic at 140 pesos (it costs $ 9 and order in the states) and for the finale is the french inspired tartate steak variation, the steak charlemagne, which is tenderloin steak with bernaise sauce and buttered vegetables that costs 380 pesos a serving! (this is mty favorite here since time imemorial!) so after shopping at the duty free mall, proceed to La Copa which is just beside the mall!

opens monday to sundays from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm to 12:00 pm.

Manila is a very interesting city. Within Manila you can see the richest to the porrest Philippine people.

Be advised of very heavy traffic conditions throughtout the city. Be patient!!

Suggest not staying at the Philippine Village Hotel. From the outside it looks nice but prices are high and service is very poor.

The Infamous Terminal 3

by Kalayaan

Although I am a resident of Manila, I just can't seem to get any straight info about that newest airport terminal. I figured it would be more convenient to ask here than to call or e-mail the airport guys.

First of all, I've heared that there is a terminal that is currently in the sole use of Philippine Airlines. Is that the new big terminal that stayed closed for so long? If it is, when will it open for the other airlines? And when it does, will it replace both old terminals, international and domestic?

It looks so much bigger than the old terminals, it would probably have the capacity to replace them both. That would make sense, as there is currently no way to transfer terminals without leaving the airport compound. Why they don't put up an airport bus service or build a monorail or tunnel connecting the terminals is beyond me. :(

Thank in advance for any answers.

1. The terminal currently being used exclusively by PAL is terminal 2 or the NAIA Centennial Terminal. It is the one past the old Philippine Village Hotel.

2. The new big terminal facing Villamor Airbase is terminal 3. It is the one that is still close and has no specific timetable as to when it can be operational. There were news that it would open this June, but obviously it did not.

3. Although I'm not familiar with the plans, I heard that terminal 3 is supposed to cater to the other airlines (international flights) leaving PAL where it is right now. In short, terminal 1 will be transferred to terminal 3 (what will happen to terminal 1, I have no idea).

4. Other domestic airlines will still use the domestic terminal. You're suggestion of a monorail or tunnel connecting the terminals should really be considered (would be economical to passengers with local/international connecting flights as they won't have to leave the terminal and take the cab).

Terminal 1 will be used for domestic flights. That's what I heard.

Accommodation Close to Airport - Any?

by hookedup1

Hi my question for you is that we arrive via QANTAS flight at 7pm at night, and would then like to catch plane to El Nido the next morning. This flight to El Nido seems to be at 7.45 with Sea Air. Not too much time to spend in a hotel and would have to leave Makati for example with quite a lot of time to spare to get to airport for morning flight. Firstly is there accommodation anyone can recommend close to the airports I need to use, or secondly what time would you suggest that we would have to leave makati for a 7.45am flight to El Nido?

Thanks

I am sure someone will come up with an hotel close to the airport in Manila. Personally I think you would regret staying in Makati with such an early flight. To be sure to get to the airport in good time you would have to leave hotel in makati about 4.45am at least. Traffic starts to be horrendous very early in Manila.

I wish you well.

RE: RE: Accommodation Close to Airport - Any?

I am not sure if Philippine Village Hotel is still operational (I think it closed down and then re-opened under a new name, but not sure really) and if it is, it's the most ideal coz it is close to both the international and domestic airports.

You could still stay in Makati preferably within the Ayala Center complex coz it's immediately accessible to EDSA, a major road leading to the airport. If you're leaving for El Nido on a weekend (Saturday or Sunday), traffic is light in the morning hence if you need to be at the domestic terminal an hour before your flight, you could leave Makati around 6-6:15am.

Another option which is the bay area, particularly Heritage Hotel or Copacabana Apartments. I hadn't been to the latter but they are within walking distance of each other. Due to the flow of traffic (one way streets, etc.) this might be a better option for you.

I've found this website that has a map useful for orienting yourself to the various districts for hotels.
Their Paranaque area (Pasay city, etc.) seems to be nearest the airport.
