"Manila was the first airport..." Philippines Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Mialee

Philippines Warnings and Dangers: 101 reviews and 62 photos

Manila was the first airport in which we've ever had to deal with poverty as severe and sad. All my girls could do was cry as we were surrounded by begging children. Be aware women, there is no one meeting you at the gate. Security is strictly enforced in Manila---I was lucky my daughter saw a man holding a placard with our name on it---far away, behind a fence--our driver. Hopefully other women's husbands will show up to welcome his wife and daughters to Phillipines and you won't have to seek signs in crowds of thousands.The worst airport.
