At the beginning of November, my husband and I are going to spend our honeymoon in Boracay, but we will have one day in Manila before flying into Boracay and one at the end of our honeymoon, before flying back home.
I would really appreciate your advice concerning the following:
1 - we are going to stay at Holiday Inn & Suites Makati, next to Glorietta Mall. How much will the taxi cost from terminal 1 of the airport to the hotel?
2 - I have read that the best exchange offices are the ones in the city, not in the airport. Depending on the cost for the taxi, we will exchange a certain amount of money in the airport and the rest in the city. Which exchange office do you recommend to be the best closest to our location?
3 - I have read all the posts about shopping in Manila. Taking into consideration that we have quite a short time there and we can not visit all the malls, I would like to get advice about the best places to shop for cheap souvenirs, branded clothes and shoes, pearls and also fake/replicas of branded handbags, watches, clothes, shoes (malls or street/night market). Can you negociate the price in all malls or just in some of them?
Thank you very much for all your replies in advance!
