Explore Manilla

For an insight into the history of the city, spend some time wandering around the old 16th century Spanish capital of Intramuros. While now in ruins, it still creates an authentic colonial atmosphere with its plazas, Governor's Palace, fifteen churches and six monasteries. The highlights of these are the Manila Cathedral, San Agustin Church, Casa Manila, and the impressive ruins of Fort Santiago. Another interesting old part of the city for strolling is Binondo, or Chinatown, with its 17th century Binondo Church, Quiapo Church and Quiapo district.

Other main attractions in the city include the ornate Malacañang Palace, now permanently associated with the self-indulgence of the Marcos family. It includes the National Museum of the Philippines, Malacañang Museu; Rizal Park, with its Planetarium, Rizal Memorial, Butterfly Pavilon and Orchidarium, and the National Museum of the Filipino People.

Manila has a host of luxurious accommodation, fine cuisine, excellent cafes and exciting nightlife. In particular, the streets around the suburbs of Malate and Makati form the main entertainment districts.

Nearby is the expanse of Manila Bay, which affords panoramic views of the South China Sea. Toast the sunsets from the harbour wall and take in the Metropolitan Museum, and the Manila Hotel, where General Douglas MacArthur once made his home. For an interesting excursion further afield, take a trip to the spectacular volcanic crater of Lake Taal, south of Manila.


Transport

By air
Manila International Airport has direct links to most Asian cities, Australia, New Zealand and the USA. The majority of tourists entering Luzon arrive at Manila Airport. Transport options at the airport include taxis, buses, and car rentals.  Shuttle services operate to and from the airport into the city, and are frequent and reliable if travellers would rather not drive abroad.

Car hire
To get about the city freely, and to the outer parts of Manila for as cheap as possible, car hire is the best option. Book cheap car hire in Manilla online before travelling and save time and money on arrival to the airport. Arrange to collect your hire car from the airport if this is your arrival destination.

Look out for Avis, Alamo, Hertz, Budget and many other firms in both Terminals 1 and 2, where you will be advised by your chosen to supplier to collect the car keys, before being directed to your vehicle.

Public services
Public transport services are efficient in Manila but out of the city taxis will be costly and bus services limited. Travel to Baclaran Station, approximately 2kms drive, or taxi ride away to get the Manila Light Rail Transit System (LRT).

Frequently asked questions

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation.
