Peak Season: 

Manila is becoming more popular as a holiday destination for Australians, especially during the dry season which runs from December to May. January to March is the busiest period as the weather is cooler with temps in the low 30s. Travellers book cheap flights to Manila as a jumping off point to explore the Philippines’ islands but many stopover in Manila to enjoy its cultural attractions, excellent shopping and cosmopolitan nightlife. Easter and Christmas are busy times to fly to Manila, and annual festivals, which can affect flight ticket prices and availability, include the Feast of the Black Nazarene in January, Cocoa De Flores in April and Flores de Mayo in May.

Off Season

It’s best to avoid travelling to Manila during typhoon season which is July to October. Look for cheap flights to Manila either side of this period. June and November, though likely to be wet, are considered ‘transition’ months so there’s a good chance the weather will be favourable.

When is the best time to book a flight to Manila?

The cheapest flights to Manila may be during September and October but this is a risky time to travel being typhoon season.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Depending which airline you fly, international flights to Manila land at either Terminal 1, Terminal 2 or Terminal 3. If you need to connect with other terminals, take the free shuttle bus service which runs every fifteen minutes. To reach the city centre, the cheapest (and most colourful) way is to catch a jeepney to Baclaran, a major transport hub ten minutes from the airport. From here you can catch the Metro-Rail to the city. Alternatively a city bus service leaves from outside Terminal 1 and 2.
