Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is considered one of the busiest airports in the world. ~You should aim to arrive at least three hours prior to your scheduled departure time for international flights to Manila. If you have a pre-flight hotel stay, check with the hotel to see if they offer transportation to the airport. Your flight will last 14 hours or more depending on whether or not you have a non-stop flight. If you don't have someone picking you up in Manila, airport taxis are available for your use.
Whether you are visiting Manila for business or pleasure, consider setting aside some time for sightseeing. Taxi is a preferred mode of public transportation, though bus and jeepney are also readily available. Possible places of interest include Mall of Asia with more than 1000 stores and an amusement park, Rizal Park with over 148 acres of gardens and monuments. History buffs will also want to explore St. Agustin Church, which survived destruction during World War II.
The flight from Los Angeles to Manila is lengthy. Consider packing snacks, books and other forms of entertainment in your carry-on bag. Once arriving at Manila International Airport (MNL), you could exchange your dollars for Philippine pesos. Rental cars are available, but navigating the city can be somewhat confusing to first-time visitors.
