What began as a small tribal settlement in the 1500s is now a bustling metropolis brimming with urbanity. Manila’s rich history tells a treacherous tale of being once encircled by walls, occupied during World War II, and colonized by the United States. Stepping out of Ninoy Aquino International Airport from one of the many long Manila flights, you’ll be surrounded by a vibrant fusion of past and present. Established in 1976, Metro Manila (a neighbouring city quartet of Manila, Kalookan, Pasay, and Quezon City) holds an overabundance of activities for all ages. With all there is to offer, it’s easy to enjoy the  city’s vast opportunities for bargain shopping, wild marine life, hybrid culture, blended cuisine, and revered antiquity.

While your cheap flight to Manila may seem prudent and ordinary, it can never compare to a lively jaunt in the city’s most famous method of transportation, called Jeepneys. This ultra affordable (and often brightly colored) mode of travel can suit up to even 18 passengers – but watch your head! Tourists have been known to achieve a bump or two in midst of all the fun.

After smartly saving on your cheap flight to Manila, you won’t need to worry much about holding on to your pesos. There are plenty of ways to have affordable fun for everyone. For approximately 200 pesos (5 USD), the outdoor adventurer can take a dive (or a snorkel, for that matter) in Manila Bay, where the water boasts up to 400 species of marine wildlife. Fortunately, it’s all made easily approachable by its surrounding Rizal Park and Manila Ocean Park’s three-story concourse. For the indoor bargain hunter, look no further than the Mall of Asia on Roxas Boulevard, where you can also enjoy an IMAX Theater and science museum. Another preference, Divisoria Market, is characterized by its bulk items and down-to-here prices. They don’t call it the mall capital of Asia for nothing, so keep that in mind when saving baggage room aboard your flight to Manila.

Much about the city’s history can be learned through the sacred structures of churches. The Manila Cathedral, for instance, was originally built from local materials of nipa and bamboo until it was damaged in the late 1500s by both a fire and a typhoon. While earthquakes and wars have ravaged the foundation of the holy ground, it stands today, much like the city, as a testament to the loyalty of its people. More landmark churches, like Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage, and San Sebastian Church, reside near the southern side of the Pasig River.

Just as the Philippines endure both rainy and dry seasons, it also showcases two bold and differing tastes of cuisine. The harmony created by both Chinese and Spanish influences create well-balanced concoctions like sweet and sour Chinese noodles and Spanish embudito. The adaptation of its counterparts is what makes the area so lavishly distinctive.

The native Philippine Tagalog word for “yes” is “Oo.” And that’s all you’ll need to say when booking your cheap flight to Manila.

How long is the flight to Manila?

Flights to Manila, Philippines from parts of Canada range from about 16h-28h. The length of your flight will depend on your departure city as well as the number and length of any layovers. If you’re flying out of Montreal, expect your flight to be on the longer side, as you will be traveling west, over the rest of Canada or through the United States, en route to Asia. Whereas if you’re flying out of Vancouver, your flight is likely to be on the shorter end of the spectrum.

Where can you get direct flights to Manila from?

You can enjoy direct flights to Manila from Toronto Pearson International Airport. These flights are serviced by Philippines Airlines and occur three times daily. If you’re flying out of other major airports in Canada, such as from Calgary or Winnipeg, you will have at least one stopover along the way to Manila. Common layover cities for these flights include other cities in Asia, like Hong Kong, Taipei, Guangzhou, Tokyo, Shanghai, and Beijing.

How do you get from Manila airport to the city centre?

When you fly to Manila from Canada, you’ll likely fly into Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL), Manila’s main international airport, which is about 12.7km from the city centre. To reach the city centre from the airport, you can take either a taxi or a bus. Taxis operate outside of terminals 1 and 3, and you have your choice of white or yellow taxis. It’s safest to take the yellow taxis, as these are operated by registered and certified drivers unlike white taxis, and have set fares, whereas white taxi drivers often go off the meter and charge you whatever they like.

When taking a yellow taxi, it will take you about 30-60 minutes to get to Manila city centre, and the starting fare is about C$1.80 and goes up by about C$0.10 increments. You can also take buses from the same area you’d catch a taxi, although they’ll drop you off at a main point in the city centre, meaning you may have to walk to your destination. Buses cost about C$3.80.

What are some things to do in Manila?

Manila is Philippine’s capital city and filled with exciting cultural and outdoor activities. DreamWorks DreamPlay amusement park is the perfect spot for families or the young-at-heart, as it offers rides, games, and food alike. If you love shopping, visiting SM Mall of Asia is a must, as it’s massive and packed with exceptional shops and more. A stroll through Rizal Park will surround you with lush greenery, as well as fountains, statues, and museums, for a fun afternoon or evening in the elements.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Manila?

When visiting Manila, Philippines, Canadian citizens do need a valid passport, although you’re not required to have a visa if your stay is for under 90 days and you’re there for tourism or business.

Manila climate

Hot and humid all year round, you’re bound to get covered in heat as soon as you step off your flight to Manila. Worth preparing for, though, is the rain: Falling 159 days a year, the extreme weather conditions are enough to deter any outward bound person – don’t let it get to you. The tropical climate gets a bad wrap because of its wet season from June to November, but a beautiful dry season makes up for it from December to May.

When is the best time to fly to Manila?

Book your flight to Manila based on weather you’d prefer drier, milder weather, or wetter, hotter conditions.

Peak Season: The perfect time to book your cheap flight to Manila is between November and February, the high tropical temperatures drop down, as does the rainfall. The dry season is a perfect time to make day trips and enjoy the weather, but be sure to bring sunscreen: Temperatures stay in the mid 80s, and the sun’s rays are strong.

Off-peak Season: High humidity takes reign during the summer time, especially on the hills of the Eastern Cordillera and to the eastern side near the mountains. The wet season also brings typhoons and high temperatures, but much fewer tourists. If braving the rain seems like a challenging and exciting way to see the city, then book your flight to Manila between June and October.

Getting around Manila

Since population is such a plaguing issue for the city, do your part for the environment by making sure to use public transportation. Watch out though, these aren’t as easy and ordinary methods as your flight to Manila. Small buses that look like jeeps, called Jeepneys, are used for sharing rides with quite a few people. Taxis, although less common, are better for more private rides. A rail line, connecting Caloocan City and the city of Baclaran, was finished in 1984, and the Philippine National Railways also join the city with northern and southeastern Luzon. Traffic overcrowding is severe, tending to gather at the bridges during rush hours.
