I have mentioned in my previous post the reasons why we have to go to Manila for some business reasons, not purely for leisure (*frown). After our arrival at Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 we went directly to baggage claim hall to pick up our stuffs.

The airport complex is situated close to the main Commercial Business Districts of Manila. Metered cabs, hotel drivers, and chauffeur services are familiar with the various terminals and routes leading up to them.
Passengers using private cars can use the appropriate routes outlined below:
From North Metro Manila
Take EDSA towards Pasay City. Past the Magallanes interchange, take the left lane of EDSA into the Tramo flyover. Head straight after clearing the flyover, and turn left at the end of the road. Continue down the road; take the first exit out of the Rotunda monument and on to the terminal entrance.
From South Metro Manila
Take the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) or Skyway towards Manila, and take the Villamor exit ramp. Continue down the road past Terminal 3 and the Resorts World complex and onto the Rotunda monument. Continue around the rotunda and on to the terminal entrance.
From West Manila
Motorists may turn onto MIA Road at the junction of Coastal Road and Roxas Boulevard. Turn left at the intersection with Park-N-Fly and proceed to take the first exit of the rotunda at the end of the road. Continue down the road; take the first exit out of the Rotunda monument and on to the terminal entrance.
Via Public Transportation
Passengers taking the Metro-Rail Transit line may disembark at the EDSA-Taft station. An airport shuttle terminal is located beside the MRT station.
Those travelling by city bus routes may take a bus plying the EDSA-MIA route. These buses will pass Terminals 1 and 2, while a jeepney route can take you to Terminal 3. Additionally, you can take the airport shuttle service to move on to the different airport terminals. Source: MIA Website
