Philippines Transportation Guide
Arriving into the Philippines is normally via jet airplane. Manila, Cebu, and Subic Bay are the major international airport entry points. There are many regular daily scheduled flights between the Philippines, and Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, and the USA.
Confirm your onward flights at least 72 hours before departure. When purchasing international tickets, make sure your passport is valid for at least 6 months from the date of your international travel otherwise you may not be able to enter the international country your flying to, and most likely incur cancellation penalties on your ticket.
There are several airlines providing nationwide flights between Philippine cities. There is one railway line between Manila to Naga in southern Luzon. Long-distance buses are the common main overland long distance mass transportation. There are plenty of ferries, ships, boats, and jet fast crafts operating between the Philippine Islands.
Car rentals are available with or without drivers. It's normal and affordable to have a car driver here. Also the driver can double as a guide and security guard too. International and local car rental agencies have offices in the major airports and hotels. Local public transport includes taxi's, jeepney's, motor tricycles with sidecar, and motorcycles.
