the airport itself is OK but the nice thing is that a sky way called NIAX was built interconnecting or at least easing the travel time to and from the airport. www.carrentmanila.com was also a big help for rent a car manila.

NAIA Terminal 1 gives me a good throwback of those Richard Gomez and Sharon Cuneta movies. Haha. Yes, I am an old soul! 128514128514 But with a number of improvements already. For one, the ceiling looks nice and chic. Except for some lines with few directions, I think it's already decent. Immigration area is clean with all booths open which is good!! Starbucks, Bo's coffee are also present for some grabs before your flight. Functional wifi of three different providers. Clean comfort rooms with bidet and tissues. However, what I do not get is how come two airlines are sharing the same gate when other gates are vacant and are not being used. It's inconvenient especially for those who are waiting for their turn not being allowed to enter that specific waiting area. Plus, it gets really crowded too. Other than that, everything has improved significantly in this airport. Well, it still houses majority of the international flights so it must be presentable at the very least to our foreign visitors.

NAIA 2 is less crowded than the other 2 Terminals. Servicing just PAL customers, flight delays and gate confusion is more manageable. Would have wanted more food and dining options though.

Why? Because of our immigration officers! That's all. 128548

Kidding aside, I have been in and out of the country since December with friends/family and this is the first time someone questioned my travel itinerary for such a long time! I thought i wouldn't even make it on time to board the plane. He even questioned me how I am able to support myself for these trips.

I showed him my company ID and told him that i'm directly employed from an employer based in Canada. He didn't want to believe me and kept questioning me why I don't have a health card. I showed him instead my travel insurance and health insurance just to give him the proof that I am very well insured even if he didn't ask for it. Around 10-15minutes has passed, he asked me to show him the date I booked all my plane tickets! Seriously??? I showed him my phone in which i have other travel itineraries for 2017. Even after that, he was hesitating to stamp my passport, and all I can do is just to smile at him even if he's already getting in my nerve.

Good thing i'm a very patient person in times like this. Oh I hope I don't see him again. 128548128548128548

I always dislike the fact that when I'm coming back home to the Philippines this would be the airport I'd have to go through. This place seriously needs to get overhauled it's old and just looks so bland. The airport does do what it is intended for though can't remember a time where I had trouble here.

NAIA Terminal 1

I've always avoided booking for a flight with an airline that is assigned at Terminal 1, even before the "laglag bala" MO, even before it was hailed as the worst airport in the world. For the longest time, it just really had a bad rep.

Last weekend though, I had an impromptu trip. And with fares going sky high, I just didn't have the right to be choosy. I haven't read any recent news or reviews of Terminal 1, so I was really surprised that it was actually in good condition. Inside the waiting area, after passing through Immigration, there were numerous restaurants and stores open past midnight. I was seriously amazed.

Now, this terminal is actually better than T2!128079128079128079

Last flight was surprisingly a breeze! Everything went fast, smooth and convenient! Props to the newly renovated areas and interiors. Even the wash rooms were clean and equipped with toilet papers. Hope they keep this up and continue to develop all the other airports more.

Had an efficient departure from and arrival at this airport last week128522128077🏻 Airconditioning was great--maybe a bit cold for some. Free wifi remains available.

But the best improvement imo would be the availability of Grab taxi/car booth in the arrival area. Yey! I finally bid goodbye to the white airport taxis & their unbelievable rates! I really don't understand why airport officials don't regulate the operations of those white airport taxis. I pity the locals and foreigners/tourists they victimize.

I wish the Grab booth will be placed nearer the exit door to give people good options esp. for those who are not yet aware. Grab booth is currently situated in the rightmost part of the arrival area upon exit, after the bus control area.

I like the layout of this airport better than terminal 3. Aircon is really cold & free wifi is available. Departure and arrival processes are both efficient 128077🏻

I just didn't like that if you arrived early and you needed to use the restroom, you have to exit and then pass through security process again as you enter (line can be long) although there's a passage to the restroom inside the airport 128533

Tip: Don't forget to check with your airline or naia beforehand if you have to pay travel tax so you pay the same before you do check-in 9757🏻️

It has improved a lot and probably it's the best among the other terminals that we have in Manila. It could be better if we would really like to promote our country.

Good thing there's more dining options unlike the other terminals.
