But make sure the initial fare on the meter is 70 and it is turned on and starts clicking up after a km or so

Having to pay a fee at the airport and having to pay porters as a complaint. Come on get real!

Being asked to pay 750P in a taxi from one terminal to another. Sounds far fetched but guess it could happen. If it DID HAPPEN you just get out and use another taxi. You always get one bad apple!

The state of the airport is well know and we all agree.

Even your review of the No 1 hotel in Makati the Fairmont Makati is negative. Its one of the better hotels Ive ever stayed at.

They tried to charge me 950 for taxi, not 750 to get to terminal 3. Plus the porter guy wasn't too happy until I paid him 550 php just to push my 4wheeled bag. All I'm saying is that it's a bad start to a vacation as soon as you land in PI. As far as fairmont goes, it was average from my experience in other hotels. To each it's own, I guess. I'm not attacking PI or it's people, so calm down. You don't have to flag my comment just bc our opinions or experiences were different.

My review for the fairmont was not negative. I gave them 3 stars and pointed out the pros and cons. I'm telling the facts on my visit.

If it is the taxi driver try to charge you P950 from Makati to the airport, then the taxi driver is obviously trying to rip you off.

Also for the porter, the rate will depends on ho wmany bags you have. Note that the porter service is not free and the charges are based on number of bags.

It is unfortunate that you met with some bad taxi drivers in Philippines. Sometimes it is just bad luck and they are trying to earn more money for those economically poor drivers.

I am not saying what they did is right. Tipping is optional in PH but P950 is excessive.

As for our review on Fairmont which I have not stayed before.

" front desk girls wearing high slit skirts" - Trust me. This is common in hotels and restaurants. Go to a Chinese country like Taiwan and China, it is so common like seeing traffic lights everyday.

"The elevator is stubborn since it's only accessible with the room key card" - This is for security purpose. I wonder why you do not like about it.

" fruit was only brought on my arrival," - This is common in this region. Fruits is provided only on arrival. No further replenishment is expected.

I guess you are still not used to Asian culture. Bangkok, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia etc. have their own ways of doing things.

What is norm to you may not be in Asia.

I do hope you will visit the region especially Philippines again.
