TOURIST INFORMATION FOR TRAVELLERS TO MANILA,
ANGELES AND PHILIPPINES
MANILA AIRPORT:Manila Airport or Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Pasay City 1300, Manila departure is easy and taxis will take you direct up top. No touts and people waiting for arrivals must stay behind barriers. Taxis are normally searched (just glovebox) to see if theyre packing sixguns just as you reach the airport but that a formality here. The Philippines is very security heavy and not that big so you can have a long wait at times lining up as only one departure lane--heck knows why as totaly rediculous. Theres also a lack of rubbish bins in the lounge and people just throw there rubbish o thefloor where the seats are. However janitors reularly sacn and pick up the rubbish.. You go through scanners at every doorway and as you enter the terminal departure lounge. Make sure you get to the airport in plenty of time to spare. eg taxis from malate take approx 15 minutes and cost around 120P. From Swagman in Malate 150P at the most.
|Go direct to departures and you will need to show your passport to security before going into the terminl. Theres not a lot of seats in the terminal and only one Mens toilet where the Temrinal fee/immigration boarding is. In the mens toilet only 3 urinals/1 main toilet with broken lock as at April 19th but it is clean. Ladies only have 2 toilets so be prepared to wait ladies--- unreal for an International airport yet noone seems to complain apart from foreigners who say they will never go back again.. There are money changer straight ahead as you go into the doors Allied Bank and PhilTrust Bank to cash in your Pesos Theres an information booth right in front in the middle by the seats and where the seats are you will find a JOLLIBEE boy who will sell you chicken fries and drinks as theres nothing to buy in the departure and once you go thu the check in and immigration the costs to buy food is expensive. Either that or bring your own if you have a long wait. The terminal is not that big and you will not get lost. Touts etc cannot go into the terminal so its safe.

They weigh all your bags and you are only allowed 25kgs on the Kuwait flights economy to Bangkok from Manila.
Going thru departures to Immigration make sure you have the 750 Terminal fee tax. Theres 2 montey changers right thru the doors if you have to change money but you can pay in US$. Get rid of your pesos before you leave at the Bank. Immigration is Ok but make sure you have filled out the departure form then get your bags inspected thru the Xray. You must take your shoes and belt off so have all your mobiles/wallets, glasses and whatever else to put into the tray. Thru the scanner they may rub you down then youre into the departure terminal. Theres many of the usual designer wear shops and food shops if you wish to pay expensive food and drinks. Theres also plenty of seats to sit down on. Once you go to your departure terminal you then have another table where staff will go thru your bags even laptop battery and you will get rubbed down as well before you board the plane. Hence the tight security.
WHAT TO BRING THRU: Ok as we are from Pattaya and good UK sausages are expensive you can bring in sausages from Manila which are excellent. Also corned beef is a good buy and Kraft have a large presence here so their products are also well priced as are taco shells and Mexican foods, breads better than Thailand & spaghetti packets, but do your homework and theres no limit up to the 25kgs you are allowed in your luggage but check this into departure. We even took JOLLIBEE chicken and burgers thru and no problem with customs as well as drinking water to eat in the departure main lounge instead of buying food plus take the rest to Bangkok. Again make sure you put all your tin cans in the stowaway luggage on the plane but you can carry a plastic bag full of Tacos if you want.One guy had a large bag of chippies and his normal pull back.
