Rich in history and culture, Manila is the capital of the Philippines. It is home to Intramuros – the seat of power of the Spaniards during their colonization of the country. Some of the favorite destinations in the Walled City are Fort Santiago and San Agustin Church. While in the area, be sure to explore Binondo, the oldest Chinatown in the world. It’s become a foodie haven with its Chinese inspired cuisines. The city is also well-known for its eclectic architecture thanks to centuries of influence from different countries.
How to get there
From Batanes, traveling by air to Manila is about an hour or so. It is served by Ninoy Aquino International Airport, which has four terminals.
I choose to fly SkyJet because they have the fastest flights to Siargao. Another important thing to me when I fly is my comfort. SkyJet’s aircraft has very big legroom. I can seat back, relax at their plane’s very comfy seats.
It’s my second time to fly to Siargao with SkyJet and I like that it’s super convenient. Their flights to Siargao are direct flight [from Manila]. I can relax while flying because of its spacious legroom—handy since I always sleep during flights—and the temperature onbaord’s cool. I plan to go to Coron and Boracay, especially Coron, which I haven’t fully explored, and in those trips I’d still take SkyJet.
It was my first time to fly SkyJet and it was a very very good experience. I was completely blown away. [The flight] was very comfortable; the staff were very accommodating. I hope SkyJet gets to have more flights. I did not have even a second of regret I flew SkyJet. In my next plans—if I go to Boracay or Surigao—it’s a given that SkyJet’s my top-of-mind airline.
