How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Most international flights currently land in Terminal 1, although they are transitioning to Terminal 3 as Terminal 1 is ranked as one of the worst in Asia. It is confusing and difficult to navigate, however getting to the city is still a simple task. It is located around 7km South of Manila and the easiest way is probably a taxi. Don’t accept a ride from anybody approaching you in the arrivals terminal though, and make sure to agree on a fare before you get into the taxi. Getting a taxi is normally a safe thing, however if you are travelling alone you might opt for the public transport options. From Terminal 1 you can get a city bus service, or you can get a taxi to the metro station and continue your journey from there. There is an airport shuttle that leaves from Terminal 3, so if you do land there then that might be a good option. Check with your hotel before you take your flights to Manila and see if they provide a service to pick you up.
