The capital city of the Philippines, Manila is the economic and cultural home of the small, bustling island nation and the gateway to all of its treasures. Home to civilization since at least the 10th century and located on picturesque Manila Bay, Manila has tons to offer and is a great choice as a home base for any Southeast Asia adventure. Cheap flights to Manila via the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL) are easy to procure and make exploring Manila the perfect trip for a vacation getaway.
Transportation from MNL
Airport hotels near Ninoy Aquino International are a great choice if you're looking for high-class stay without any transportation hassle. Many hotels offer complimentary 24-hour shuttle service to and from the airport, and with daily flights to Manila, it's easy to get in and out of the city. If you plan on staying in Manila's downtown area, which is usually a thirty minute drive away depending on traffic, several options for ground transportation are available. Taxis are common, but we'd recommend only taking prepaid, metered, or official cabs available inside the airport and avoiding any drivers who try to solicit you. Some of the bigger downtown hotels will book you a private car, which gives you more freedom of movement but tends to be more expensive than a taxi. Alternately, you can ask for a private car yourself inside the terminal. Public transit is also available via the Manila Light Rail Transit System, the city's metropolitan rail system. The nearest station is Baclaran Station, which is a short taxi ride from the airport.
