I will be arriving in Manila on Dec. 23 in the afternoon. SInce it is the holidays, I am expecting everyone to be out and about and traffic will be a nighmare as it often is in the holidays. I have decided to forgo the usual airport pickup but opted to just take a taxi. So what can one expect to pay from NAIA to Alabang near the Town Center.
Secondly, I found the following threads on the internet regarding the yellow metered airport cab:
The main poster seems to have nothing but kudos for his expreience, but the subsequent posts (sorry it is in tagalog, but some are in english) all talk of having been ripped off. Granted the thread is 2008 and things may have change since. So what can one expect when using a taxi from the airport? Do you fall in line, pay a fixed sum, get your receipt and expect a trouble free ride?
