Manila experiences a tropical climate with wet-dry seasons that may overlap for up to 2 months. June – November is the wet season which is characterized by heavy rains and serial typhoons. The summer months from March – May are hot and humid with average temperatures as high as 35 degrees Celsius. The best time to visit Manila is between late November – early March, when the weather is dry and pleasant.
The best way to explore the sprawling city of Manila is to rely on public transport. The Metro Rail Transit (MRT) and Light Rail Transit (LRT) connect you to all the tourist attractions and shopping destinations in the city. Fares are based on distance traveled, and range from ₱15 PHP – ₱25 PHP. As long as you can see an MRT or LRT line, you will not be lost in this city. If you find yourself in an unfamiliar area, you can also hail a metered taxi anywhere on the streets. For shorter distances, try a colourful jeepney, which has become the backbone of the Philippine transport system. Jeepney fares start at ₱7.50 PHP for the first 4 kilometres. Manila is notorious for traffic jams and gridlocks. You’ll notice that a 3-lane road often gets used like a 5-lane road with vehicles cramming into every available space, so it is best if you can avoid driving in the city.
Manila is a huge city and is easy to get around in thanks to its variety of transportation options. To get around most easily, you should stay in the historic center by the bay shore. This is where most hotels and tourist attractions are located, and it’s also a good starting point if you’re taking metro line LRT 1 and LRT 2, which transfer you to other neighborhoods with public transportation. The Metro system quickly takes you around the city; the Light Rail and jeepneys—ride-share jeeps—are other public transportation options. These are affordable and easy to use. A cheap way to get around is on buses, and on these you’ll find most information in English. Another easily accessible area is San Juan, where Metro lines LRT 2 and MRT 3 converge.

Manila is a cosmopolitan city with an impressive blend of Malay, Spanish, American, Chinese and Arabic cultures. With its beautiful bayside location and myriad attractions, the city has a cool and vibrant vibe. However, being part of a developing country, Manila also has a slightly kitsch avatar. You may find yourself overwhelmed with the city’s traffic and urban sprawl. Choose your neighbourhood carefully, so that you can experience the best of what Manila has to offer. Out of the 16 neighbourhoods which operate like individual cities, here are a few that you can consider.
Makati is a high-end business district where large multinational corporations have set up offices. This affluent area boasts high-end retail outlets, the choicest international dining, a sprawling handicraft market, and several parks and monuments. Enjoy the modern rooms and amenities of New World Makati Hotel, an upscale hotel in the heart of Makati. An 8-minute walk from Ayala Museum, you have The Peninsula Manila, a luxury hotel that features bright rooms decorated in Filipino-inspired furnishings.
What used to be the main trading port of Philippines until the 1940s has now transformed into a contemporary bayside neighbourhood. At the northern end of this area, you’ll find Intramuros – the remains of a walled Spanish settlement, which is also home to some interesting museums and monuments. Stay in contemporary rooms with bay views at the AG New World Manila Bay Hotel, an upscale hotel set in a modern, high-rise building. You can also consider the welcoming and elegant rooms of Diamond Hotel Philippines, which is a 12-minute walk from Rizal Park.
Malate is one of the main tourism districts in Manila. Apart from a wide choice of hotels, speciality restaurants and cafés, this neighbourhood has several lively nightlife venues, and is also home to Manila’s gay village. Along the waterfront, you have Admiral Baysuites GTM, an apart-hotel set in a historic landmark building on Roxas Boulevard, just steps away from the Cultural Centre of the Philippines. Enjoy the traditional décor, wooden accents and spacious rooms of Armada Hotel Manila, just a 5-minute walk from The Baywalk promenade.
Home to several universities, museums and parks, Ermita is close to Manila Bay, and is an important centre of finance, culture and commerce. It also offers a wide range of accommodation, including several cheap hotels at convenient locations. Enjoy the stunning bay views from beautiful rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows in Hotel H2O, an aquarium-themed luxury hotel set inside the Manila Ocean Park complex. For mid-range budget accommodation, consider the stylish and comfortable rooms of The Corporate Inn Hotel Manila, just a short walk away from the popular sites and attractions in Ermita.
The headquarters of the Philippine Army, Fort Bonifacio is an open and spacious neighbourhood with wide sidewalks and broad streets. Bonifacio High Street is a 1-kilometre stretch with a wide range of shopping and dining options. This neighbourhood also offers plenty of rooftop watering holes, and a vibrant nightlife. Enjoy the plush rooms and modern amenities of Shangri-La at the Fort, Manila, a swanky hotel set in one of the tallest towers in Philippines. You can also consider the luxurious serviced apartments of Ascott Bonifacio Global City Manila, set in the heart of the Fort Bonifacio neighbourhood. Staying here, you will find yourself surrounded by glitzy high-rises and tree-lined boulevards.
Although Manila is one of the most densely populated cities in the world, it offers a modest choice of cheap accommodation in the tourist-friendly locations. In the heart of Ermita, enjoy a cozy and comfortable stay at Casa Bocobo Hotel, just a 5-minute walk from Rizal Park. In the Santolan neighbourhood, you can consider the guesthouse-style property of Ancestral Inn. Within walking distance from the Manila Zoological and Botanical Garden, you have simple clean rooms in the budget inn, Pension Natividad. If you are looking for hostel-style accommodation, consider Hostel Sarah near Rizal Park, Our Awesome Hostel Manila close to Fort Bonifacio, or the lively Z Hostel in the heart of Makati.
When you choose among the hotels in Manila, you should consider the main reasons for your visit. If you want to get the full tourist experience and good food, then we recommend staying in the somewhat pricier but convenient downtown area around Rizal Park and Ermita. If you’re interested in nightlife and you’re traveling on a budget, the Malate is a great alternative. This area has a rich history and was once the financial center of the city, but has now become more commercial, offering budget hotels and popular restaurants and bars. Many business travelers choose to stay in Makati, which is the high-end business area in Manila and home to most of the city’s shopping centers. In this area, you’ll find hotels like Eurotel Makati and Discovery Primea.
Manila is a diverse metropolis and a true Asian megacity with a hectic pace. The glitzy skyscrapers and modern developments in some parts of the city are in stark contrast from the sprawling shanty towns in other parts of the city. Yet, the city’s rich culture, heritage, history, architecture, museums and parks offer a packed itinerary to explore this ‘Pearl of the Orient’.
Book hotels in Manila in the central Rizal Park to be in a central area within walking distance of attractions like Fort Santiago, San Augustin Church, and the National Museum of Anthropology. Fort Santiago is the main attraction in the historical area, offering beautiful gardens, shrines, and other intriguing architecture. The San Augustin Church is the only building in the area that survived the Second World War; it was built around the end of the 16th century. The National Museum of Anthropology houses a diverse collection of some of the earliest archeological finds in the Philippines within its neoclassical architecture. Through momondo, you can find Manila hotels like The Heritage Hotel Manila and The Corporate Inn Hotel, both located close to Rizal Park. The Sampaloc area draws many visitors and is home to the arts and culture organization VivaManila, which hosts performances and mini festivals. This area is also known for its colleges and universities. Find cheap hotels in Manila in the Sampaloc neighborhood, such as the Governor Forbes Inn or Skyloft Hotel.
If you’re looking for bars and restaurants, then the downtown area by the bay shore is your best bet. Stay at hotels like Bayview Park Hotel or Luneta Hotel to be within walking distance of oceanview restaurants and bars. Cheap hotels in Manila near bar hotspots are also found around Malate, which is along the shore farther south. Here, you have hotels like Hop Inn Hotel Ermita and Victoria Court Malate. Find traditional cuisine as well as international culinary establishments in these two neighborhoods, which are both accessible by LRT light rail. They’re considered central areas, so they’re easy to visit even if you’re staying in other parts of the city.

In January, you can catch the festivities related to the Feast of the Black Nazarene, which takes place around Rizal Park (accessed via LRT line 1). The Manila Music Festival in May is another popular event that draws crowds from all over the world. The festival is held in Pasay, another destination that you can access from the city center via LRT line 1.
