Traveling to Manila via the John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York will take you approximately 18 hours. You can get to the airport via taxi, shuttle or bus. When you arrive at the Nino Aquino Manila International Airport (MNL), you can take a taxi or rent a car and explore the city's main attractions.
As the capital of the Philippines, Manila is known as the City of Dreams due to its entertainment, luxury hotels and first-class dining. If you like shopping, you can visit the impressive and airy SM Megamall, where you'll even find a skating ring, an art center, and a cinema.
For a more relaxed afternoon, soak up the sun and visit the scenic and historical Tour Fort Santiago. Once there, you're free to take a long, leisurely walk on the beautiful grounds. You may even get to watch an open-air theater performance while you're there. If it's not raining, you could opt to take a ferry and visit Corregidor Island where you can take part in hiking, bird watching, cycling or boating.
Since the Nino Aquino Manila International Airport (MNL) is a major international airport, many hotels are just minutes away. The airport also offers conveniences such as several banks, restaurants, a post office and even a four-level shopping mall. Manila's weather is hot and humid all year long, with December and January being the coolest months.
