Let your senses be your guide on your adventure in the South Pacific. The island nation of the Philippines—and its capital city, Manila—are a feast for your senses. Your eyes will marvel at the world’s smallest volcano, set on its own island in the middle of a modest lake. Your nose will delight in the robust aroma of a rich cup of coffee wafting through the air from a sidewalk café near a museum in the Luneta neighborhood. Your tongue will taste the exotic flavors from a street vendor’s cart in Intramuros. Your fingers will feel the fine silks and other garments at a curio shop in Ermita. And your ears…your ears will hear the pulsating sounds flowing from the nightclubs along Roxas Boulevard, which runs from Paranaque City to downtown.
Having a rental car in Manila is the best way to transport your senses from one stimulating experience to the next. And with the money you save thanks to Travelocity’s Manila rental car deals, you can embark on a quest to find the ultimate recipe for chicken adobo—the Philippines’ national dish.
Finding a proper place to stay while you’re on vacation can be just as important as the attractions you will visit, the places you will eat, and the events you will attend. When you rent a car in Manila, you can easily access them all, but a great hotel in a prime location can make everything even more convenient. Here are some of our favorite hotels in the Philippines capital, all of which offer valet and self-parking for your rental:
Flights to Manila touch down at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL), about nine miles south of downtown. Pick up the keys to your Manila rental car from the agency courtesy counters near baggage claim, and get ready to explore the Pearl of the Orient. From city center, it’s an eight-mile drive north to Quezon City, where you can catch a basketball game at the Smart Araneta Coliseum—coincidentally where the “Thrilla in Manila” boxing match took place. From there, head about three miles north to Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center for a chance to experience one of the nation’s natural wonders.
If you tend to enjoy a little retail therapy while on vacation, opt for cheap car rentals in Manila and make the three-mile drive south along Manila Bay to Pasay. Let the money you saved burn a hole in your pocket at the second-largest mall in the Philippines at SM Mall of Asia. Pick up some souvenirs for your loved ones back home—or just buy something for yourself…we won’t tell.
