Manila WHORIST.COM ARCHIVE Airport - Hotel - Restaurant - Transport Info that will help you secure sex with young hookers , escorts , prostitutes and regular women , but not ladyboys (trannies : ) GUIDE only : Use the information below as a guide only. It will be helpful in getting you started. I personally visit Philippines as much as possible , and then update the info below. Otherwise updates are based on proven reliable sources. Airport Manila : Important : There are three terminals (T) at Manila : T.1. Ninoy Aquino , T.2. Phil Airlines (PAL) , and T.3. Domestic Terminal. Which also caters for international flights for companies like budget airline Cebu Pacific Air. Back home , before departure , check your flight schedule printed out by your travel agent , whoever , and confirm which terminal you are arriving at. Most will arrive at T.1. Ninoy Aquino. Philippines Airlines (PAL) have a designer terminal of their own for departures and arrivals , its Terminal .2. Any other international flights eg Cebu Pacific ones , will arrive at Terminal.3 , which is also the terminal for all domestic flights , all companies , except PAL (Terminal.2.) Suggest you read Terminal 1 info , some info there that applies to Terminal 2 and 3 too. Terminal .1. ...... In brief , catch Yellow Taxis (details below). Generally all flights except PAL and Cebu Pacific Air arrive and depart at Terminal.1. Departures , is above Arrivals , and Reception (Meeting Place) , below Arrivals level. On exiting plane you follow the leader to the Immigration booths (Arrivals level). Much smaller show than say at Bangkok Airport (SUV) , cause lot less tourists visit Phils. Still a lot , must run into the millions methinks (tourists). Then onto carousel , looking at signs above carousels for your flight number. I always stand near where the bags are coming onto the belt = quicker. Pass through 'Nothing to Declare' if you have nothing to declare (me all the time). Do not bring porno , drugs (death penalty) or significant quantities of valuables eg watches , jewellery whatever. Big hassle and big delay at airport if you do. Now , you will need Pesos currency when you exit the airport , so most discreet way of changing your money is to change it at Money Changer on carousel side , just before you exit baggage collection area. Look to your right , you'll see em. Philippine National Bank is the bank of Phils , might as well change there. Its not uncommon in Phils to hear "Sorry I have not got change". So stock up on change , eg P10 x 5 ; P20 x 10 ; P50 x 10 ; P100 x 20 ; P500 x 20 ; P1000 the balance. They are the denominations I would get , and I have many years of dealing with 'no change' in Phils. Although must admit its not as bad as it used to be : ) Don't forget you will need Pesos for your departure tax when you leave the country. P750 all up (can increase , check that out whilst at airport) , cash or credit card. Not included in your air ticket , when dealing with Philippines. Secrete money away , not all in the one spot , pass through the door to arrivals in general. Dept of Tourism employing honeys are located in this hall , turn left and they are on your right. Time to ask any general tourist questions , eg where is Yellow Cabs and confirm estimated cost including flag fall (meter starting price) to your destination. They have an idea how much it should cost = you will know if you have been ripped off or not , unlikely , but nice to be in control. I think it was P250 all up , including flag fall , to Amazonia accommodation in M.H.Del Pilar. In my case yellow cabs were through a door , to extreme left (as I exited baggage hall). Taxis : I strongly recommend Yellow Cabs for a hassle free entry to Philippines and Manila. Taxis in manila have a topsy turvy reputation. Sometimes you can have a bad run when they refuse to use meter and want to charge you an exhorbitant amount to your destination. Other times they use the meter but its 'hot' , running fast = 50/100% more than it should be. Could be even 'hotter' than that in some cases : ) Hence you do NOT catch a regular taxi outside any Airport in Manila (Terminals 1 , 2 or 3). Must admit I had a basically hassle free time with taxis last trip to Manila. But then I look like I know where I am going and what I am doing. After many years of going to and fro Phils , I should know something by now : ) Go to Yellow Cabs little desk on footpath outside terminal and get taxi ticket. Make sure you get your copy of the ticket , keep it do not surrender to driver , tell him its your copy (for reporting to authorities if any hassles). You do not get a ticket with regular taxis , by the way. Your on your own with them , and God speed you : ) When Yellow Taxi driver takes off make sure meter is showing P70 flag fall (can go up over time) , and not the total fare of previous passenger (unlikely). See accommodation section for recommended destinations (accommodation). If driver says he does not know hotel of your destination , chances are he is trying to con you. This is highly unlikey with Yellow Cabs , hence use them. Better educated , mannered , honest drivers (Yellow Cabs). My experience anyway. To recommended Ermita area it will be about P250 to P300 all up including initial flag fall. Traffic jams could take it to the P300 plus level. My fare to Ermita was P250 in heavy traffic (8pm). On my very last trip to Manila it was P330 (Yellow Cab). Alternative to Yellow Cabs are the "ticket taxi's" , better vehicle but double or more the Yellow Cabs (YC) price. Yellow cabs are in good condition. It's a waste doing biz with 'ticket taxis'. Ask at Dept of Tourism (DOT) where these P500/600 (Ermita) vehicles are. Last time they were outside and immediately behind DOT desk. No meter , set price. Before Yellow Cabs came on the scene , they were the ones. Not any more , YC's have undercut them with price and the service almost identical. YC's it is. Whatever you do , ignore anyone saying "taxi sir" , and never ever hop in a regular taxi. Its Yellow Cabs or taxi ticket vehicles , no others. Ignore this advice at your peril.
