There are 2 types of cabs in Manila, yellow cabs and white cabs.
From the international airport, hop in a yellow cab if you are staying near the center of Manila.
Why? Because yellow cabs are the official cabs. They are therefore the safest. But as is often the case in Asia, you will surely have to insist that the driver starts his meter, always with a smile of course.
As for the fare: count 70 pesos when you take it at the airport + 4 pesos every 300 meters.
To reach the unusual hotel that we'll talk about below, count about 250 pesos for a 20-minute drive. If you go directly to the hotel, you will be asked to pay 800 pesos. The same price is charged to reach downtown Manila.
There are also white cabs, the "more local" cabs. We advise you to use them for short trips like for example for a race between the National airport of Manila and our second hotel which was located at 5 minutes of there or between this same hotel and the Mall of Asia. Less expensive than the yellow cabs, it is necessary to insist and even more to insist that the driver puts his meter on the road again or we agree on a price at the beginning of the race. White cabs are a good compromise when you want to take a cab on the fly.
