From the sandy white beaches of Boracay, it’s time to walk down the memory lane and see for yourself the famous capital of the Philippines – Manila! This side of town offers a glimpse of the country’s rich culture and history. Check out Intramuros and its top historical sites, including Fort Santiago, Bahay Tsinoy, San Agustin Church and more. A side trip in Binondo and doing a food crawl is also a must. And before the sun goes down, be sure to experience the most beautiful sunset in the country along Manila Bay, where you’ll get an amazing front seat view.
How to get there
Travel time from Boracay to Manila via Caticlan is one hour. The airport in Manila is Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). Depending on the airline you’re flying with, you’ll be arriving in one of its 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.
