Transport Information

The following information is provided to assist you with your travel needs when arriving in Manila, Philippines to attend the 13th IPoE Forum 2019.

Arriving in Manila – by air

The Ninoy Aquino International Airport or NAIA, formerly known as Manila International Airport as well as its codename Nichols Field, is the airport serving Manila and its surrounding metropolitan area.

Getting Around Manila

A wide range of public transportation crosses the metro area every day. The most uniquely Philippine mode of travel is the jeepney. Each of these jeep-minivan hybrids is uniquely painted and decorated by its owner. Jeepneys provide cheap transportation (fares average Php8 to Php9) for the short haul, while buses might be more comfortable for longer trips across town. Motorcycles and bicycles with sidecars (called “tricycles” and “pedicabs,” respectively) carry passengers on narrow city streets and alleyways for a charge of a few pesos. Taxicabs are used in the business districts while in other neighborhoods, including Chinatown and Intramuros, horse-drawn carriages carry both goods and passengers.

Taxi and Grab

Regular taxis are metered and air – conditioned. New technology has reached Manila and you can now use the popular Grab app. There are extras charges, but the vehicle you get by using these apps are generally in good shape, more comfortable, and have honest drivers.

LRT (Light Rail Transit) and MRT (Metro Rail Transit)

Riding the LRT and MRT is also very affordable, but it’s  best to avoid it during weekday rush hours (07: 00 to 09:00 and 17:00 to 21:00).

Car Rental

Car rental with a driver or self – driving are two interesting options when visiting Manila independently – the former being obviously more expensive than the latter. All reputable car rental companies have a desk at Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport, and usually other agencies in Metro Manila. A valid international driver’s license is all that you need to rent a car in the Philippines.
