Manila Tourist Traps: 32 reviews and 12 photos

When you get to the airport, whether arriving on a domestic or international flight, you can either take a chauffeur driven airport taxi or a metered cab. Metered taxis are cheaper as long as you make it clear to the driver you know where you're going and make sure he turns the meter on. You'll end up paying 5 times more if you hire a car but you usually get newer more comfortable models than the metered ones. Regular metered cab fare to Makati is about $2US and airport taxis about $10 or $11.
