Flights to Manila
Booking air travel reservations to Manila doesn't have to put a huge dent in your wallet. Ebookers searches flights in and out of Ninoy Aquino International Airport and Diosdado Macapagal International Airport to help you find a good deal. If you want to get the most out of your money, try to make your travel dates flexible. In addition, it's usually cheaper to book your flight and your hotel together.
Accommodations in Manila
Manila is a vast city that's divided into 16 different districts. Most people choose to stay in downtown Manila or in Makati. However, the prices of the hotels vary between the two areas, and staying in downtown Manila is usually cheaper. When you let ebookers help you find your hotel, you don't have to weed through the options one by one. The website quickly searches all available options to tell you which hotels have the best rates. Hotels in Manila aren't difficult to find, but don't be surprised if the hotel you choose has stringent security policies in place. It's common for security staff to search vehicles and scan bags when guests arrive.
Navigating the City
If you to prefer to explore metro Manila on your own, ebookers can help you find a rental car for the duration of your stay. However, the vast metropolitan area also has various means of public transportation. If you want an authentic Filipino travel experience, hop aboard a jeepney. After World War II, the people in the Philippines repurposed the jeeps left behind by the United States Army, turning them into passenger vehicles for public transportation. Traveling through the city via jeepney is one of the cheapest modes of transportation, and it's an experience you won't find anywhere else. The city also has bus and train transportation. However, buses are only allowed to travel on the main streets, so you might have trouble getting to certain areas traveling by bus. Chinatown, Intramuros and Malate feature all Kalesa rides as a form of public transportation. The old-fashioned horse-drawn carriages are a fantastic way to tour the area.
Things to do in Manila
Manila has a vibrant nightlife. Malate and Makati are both popular districts for bar hopping, but when you're traveling on a budget, you'll find cheaper options in Malate. Chinatown in Manila is the world's oldest Chinatown. It's filled with restaurants, the sound of Chinese music and the smell of incense. You can take a walking tour of Chinatown or simply browse the streets on your own. While Makati is mostly a business district, it also has a handful of sights to see, such as the American Cemetery and Memorial.
