Anyting near airport to fill in time between flights

Hi All,

we arrive in Manila from Boracay on the 2nd April at 1pm.

And dont depart Manila for Siem Reap until 7.45pm.

Is there anything close by worth seeing in this time.

or is there a lounge at the airport we can pay to go into, or even a close by hotel to hang at?

Thanks heaps

Resorts World is just across T3. There are 3 hotels in the complex: Remington (3*), Marriott and Maxims (5*). There are shops, restaurants, movie and performing arts theatres in the complex.

You may also opt to go to Intramuros (Blue Leaf is tops) or to the Mall of Asia complex. You need to be at the airport 3 hours ahead of your departure for Siem Reap, so you may not be able to catch the sunset along Roxas Blvd., but the CCP complex is also a nice hangout. Manila Ocean Park is adjacent to the Manila Hotel just along Roxas Blvd too.

Northeast is Bonifacio Global City where you can stroll down the High Street area or go to Makati for some shopping.

Depends really on what you want to do/see/eat.

Solaire resort and Casino has just opened in what it is calling 'Entertainment City' - actually in Paranaque City, which can be up to half an hour from the airport although it is less than five kilometres:

Unfortunately, there is no surface, underground or elevated railway to speed you there without traffic worries.

As it is brand new, it will have a 'wow' factor but I have been to Resorts World opposite T3 at NAIA and it has plenty to occupy most souls.

No, becauas while I have recently been in Philippines, I was unable to have the time to visit Solaire.

On visits to Resorts World Manila, I have used the shuttle bus once but on other occasions have used a taxi.

I would suggest a trip to qurino ave in Paranaque. There's some bars there - have a relaxing ale...

Unless you love casinos I would rather go to Mall of Asia than Solaire which as of the moment only has a casino and high-end restaurants.
