Manila airport

When guests arrive from other countries, a country’s main international airport is the first thing they see and experience, to evaluate the whole country. Accordingly, most countries in the world, also in Asia, made their international airports a world of it’s own. Restaurants, shopping centers and even a swimming pool (Singapore), one finds for example in Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur etc., but not so in Manila.


The international airport in Manila however, is more like a prison, which you can enter only, when you can show a valid ticket and your passport. As you enter the building, your baggage is X-rayed, all the papers checked and you have to pass through a body scanner, without a belt, jacket and purse, of course. A few years ago, a German citizen got so upset about the checks that he dropped his pants and ended up in jail for a few days. So if you were brought to the airport by some relatives or some friends, you have to say good bye to them outside the airport building. They are not allowed to get in.
After the entrance checkpoint, you end up in a relatively small hall with no chairs, where you may join the queues at the check in counters.

Left Luggage Counters:
For many years, there hadn’t been a Left Luggage Counter anywhere at Manila Airport. Now you have two options in case you have to spend a few hours in Manila, before your connecting flight. Inside terminal one, where all international flights depart, there is an Excess Luggage Service Counter, where you can leave your luggage for 200 Peso per piece per 3 hours. You will find this counter in the departure area.
Another option is the nearby Mall of Asia! A huge shopping mall and only a few minutes or 150 Peso by Taxi away from the airport. There you will find a luggage counter for an unlimited number of lpieces and you can spend and enjoy the whole day in the mall.

Arrival in Manila:
The airport in Manila consists of three main terminals and passengers of almost all international Airlines will arrive at the oldTerminal 1! After disembarking the aircraft, follow the other passengers to the immigration checks and look for the assigned belt in the baggage claim area.
Beside the belts and still inside the building, you will find some money changers where you can change some money to pay for a taxi and maybe a hotel room. The exchange rate here is not the best so don’t change everything at once. There are also some people selling SIM cards for the different mobile phone companies of the Philippines. Normally you can buy this start up packages for only 30 Peso but at the airport, they sell them for 150!

When you step outside the building you find metered Airport Taxis at the far left side of the building and a free Shuttle Busto the other terminals at the far right side. A ride to T2 will take only 10 Minutes but it’s 20 to 30 Minutes to T3. If you are in a hurry, take a taxi. Please be aware that the airport taxis charge about twice as much as the normal city taxis. The meter in the airport taxis starts with 70 Peso, normal taxis is only 40 Peso.

Manila Airport Terminal 3
Terminal 3 at Manila Airport: Here you have to fall in line 6 times(!) before you may finally enter the plane

The 3 (4)Terminals:
As I already said, the airport in Manila consists of 3 Terminals: The oldest Terminal 1 handles all international flights of all international airlines. Terminal 2 is for Philippine Airlines (PAL) only and the newest Terminal 3 is for all other domestic airlines like Cebu Pacific and AirPhil Express.
A taxi ride from T1 to T2 takes only 10 minutes but to get from T1 or T2 to T3, the taxi has drive to the opposite site of the airport and that may take 20 -30 minutes.
Between T2 and T3 is still the old Domestic Terminal. There are still some small airlines like SEAIR and Zest Air using it. Please also read: The Airlines of the Philippines

Manila Departure
If some day you have to leave this wonderful country, this will most likely happen via the old Terminal 1 at Manila’s International Airport. Due to the already mentioned lack of seating and other entertainment venues at T1, you should arrive at the airport as late as possible but still early enough to compensate for possible delays at the check points for entering the building.
After checking in, you have to pay the mandatory 750 Peso Airport Tax and may then, after passing through the passport control and another security check, enter the so called departure area. Here you find a few snack bars where you can buy some overpriced sandwiches and drinks. If you have to use the bathroom, be aware that there is no running water, most of the time.
Maybe the last “rip-off” point in the Philippines are the money changers in the departure area. If you want to change your remaining Pesos into foreign currency they will hand out only straight numbers and keep the change, sometimes up to 200 to 300 Peso, for them self. Not so much you might say but with a few thousand passengers every day, it adds up!

  2. I’ve really noticed that credit score improvement activity really needs to be conducted with tactics. If not, chances are you’ll find yourself damaging your standing. In order to realize your aspirations in fixing your credit score you have to confirm that from this moment you pay your monthly fees promptly prior to their appointed date. It is really significant because by not necessarily accomplishing this, all other activities that you will choose to use to improve your credit rating will not be effective.

    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a
    little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free
    platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so
    many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas?
