When you are departing from Manila, do go to the Ninoy Aquino Airport at least 2-3 hours beforehand due to lots of waiting because of security checks. You have to queue up to enter the airport as no other people other than passengers are allowed, so get your plane ticket and passport ready for checking. Also, the airport is not very big and usually very crowded, so do be careful. Sometimes you cannot even find a seat at the waiting area before boarding your plane.

Beware of the typhoon season (usually from June to September) in Manila as this could wreak havoc to your holidays. The typhoons in the Philippines can be deadly causing floods and destruction. Also, the weather can be very hot during certain parts of the year, which happened when I visited in April 2006.

When you are in Manila, you have to be careful of your safety especially against pickpockets and theft which can happen especially when the locals spot a foreigner. Try not to wonder around unless you have local friends to bring you around as they know which are the more dangerous places. In order to visit the attractions, you can go for an organised day trip. If you want to visit a particular place, get a taxi from your hotel and then ask the driver to pick you up at a certain place and time so that you can ensure of reliable transport back to your hotel.

A Calesa ride (horse drawn carriage) can be a fun way to see the city. However be careful and make sure the price is well understood and agreed to upon ahead of time. Our driver quoted us a price in Pesos then at the end of the ride tried to collect that amount in US dollars. Be firm and give them only what the ride is worth.
