The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) is located about 22 kilometers south of the conference venue. A taxi ride to the hotel takes approximately 30 minutes and costs from PhP250 (about US$6) regular service to PhP500 (about US$11), depending on the traffic and time of day.
You may also travel around Metro Manila by jeepney, bus, or train. Jeepney fares start at PhP8.50 (20 US cents) and bus fares, PhP11 (25 US cents), but could go as high as PhP30 (about 70 US cents). Train tickets may be bought at the station from PhP15 to PhP20.
The taxi is the most comfortable way to travel in the city especially if you do not know the routes. Taxis are widely available and metered. They can be flagged or booked via taxi booking applications.
From the airport, two-kilometer ride by taxi could get you to the Light Rail Transit line 1 (LRT-1)’s Baclaran station. In the future, another LRT line is to be constructed to connect LRT-1’s Baclaran Station directly to the airport’s 3 terminals.
