Manila flights touch down at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL), about 13km south of Manila’s city centre. Metro Manila surrounds the downtown area and comprises several districts that are easiest to navigate with the help of taxi drivers.
Between the airport in the Pasay District and downtown Manila, find your morning cup of caffeine at one of the many independent gourmet cafes in the Makati financial district and start the day with a little shopping spree.
Arriving in the afternoon? Amble around the historic centre at Intramuros—the old walled city that dates back to the 16th century. Just up the street, visit the San Augustin Museum and monastery before watching the sun set over Manila Bay.
If your flight touches down after dark, you don’t have to go far to find some of the most popular lounges and dance clubs in the city, as sleepy Pasay is waiting to bust a move when the sun goes down.
For a taste of today’s hottest Filipino flavours, seek out the burger-slinging, kabob-cooking food markets that run late into the night. Market Centrale—the big one—is located between Pasay and Makati, and it’s brimming with sweet treats and fried delights.
