    Pay 750 PhP terminal fee and travel tax for a run-down, dilapidated airport. Why do we put up with this?

    Stay at The Sampaguita Lounge (just right after the Duty Free shops) for a quiet, relaxing space while waiting for your flight. Buffet snacks with FREE WiFi!

    Caveat: This airport does not reflect genuine Filipino hospitality. But it is rundown and dingy as the government.

    Spend as little time as possible in run down and dirty T1. But get there early as it takes forever to get thru all the queues. Most dilapidated airport terminal among all major airports in Asia.

    Airport is a relic of the 80s needs update. Leave plenty of transit time to airport. Rush hour Traffic is terrible (30-45 min from Makati). give yourself 3 hrs to get to gate Very inefficient airport.

  • Mennen A.

    The MIASCOR lounge is free for Citibank Miles card holders. This is a good respite after the long queues at check-in.

    word of caution, there are two international airports in Manila, one which is for Philippine Airlines (PAL) flights only and the other NAIA1 which serves all others. Make sure your going to the right1

    This is the only airport in the world (NAIA 2 & 3 included) where you find monstrous lines. Aggravating for the sleep deprived...

    The East Wing entrance is closed for repair, go around the West Wing out for the minuscule sidewalk especially if you're using the carrying karts. Still as ugly as 10-years ago.

  • Reinald R.

    Bring a lot of patience. That's all.

    Make sure you take some extra cash for the Terminal Fee (750PHP as of Jan 1 2011) and Travel Tax (if it applies to you - check online for details)

    The terminal fee is 550 peso or US$12.55 on August 30th, 2013. You can pay by cash or card. If you have only bill of US$20 or US$50, never mind, they could give you US$5 and some pesos as a change.

    Filipinos deserve a better airport than this dump. Especially with the 32% Tax Rate the gov't mandates. #prevacationthoughts

    Terminal 1 is such a filthy place. it needs some major cleaning.

    No WiFi near the gate area. If you're going to be an airport who charges a terminal fee, at the least have free WiFi. Ok?

    For those who have an Amex Platinum credit card, MIASCOR lounge access is for free! It's quiet and they also offer free food and wifi :)

  • Junyeong Ephrem P.

    오래되어서 좁고 불편한 터미널입니다. 출국 심사 전에 이용할 수 있는 시설이 거의 없고, 와이파이 안 잡히고, 밥 먹을 곳도 달랑 하나, 간이 매점 있습니다. 화장실 갈 때는 카트를 화장실 입구끝까지 가지고 들어가셔야 합니다. 누워서 잘 곳은 한 군데도 없어요. 미리오면 고생임.
