Jesy said...

"1.From Tenejeros, ride a bus to Baclaran via EDSA."

Just to clarify... there are no buses passing by Tenejeros. Buses going to EDSA/Baclaran can be found in Potrero (Malabon), specifically in McArthur Highway side. :)

Thanks for the info too, first time to fly out via T3 and ofcourse you helped me again with directions. Your site is simply the best :)

Always make sure that your checked -in baggage are locked and remove any visible items on the side pockets of your luggage otherwise expect it to be gone once you retrieved your check in bags from the carousel. Everything horrible happens at Naia 3 terminal when it comes to baggage. My brother luggage got his luggage without the straps handle which look like it was cut off. I got my back pack without the identification pin attached to it. I guess it was stolen by those in charge of transfering the baggage to and from the carousel. My latest trip from Davao, my calculator located at the side pocket was already gone when I got my bag from the conveyor. I am quite certain that things like this happens everyday but people who are already tired from their trip just ignores it it and did not bother reporting it to the concerned authorities. Just be careful of your personal belongings if you don't want to lose them at the airport.

Good thing I've always considered it standard to know how to at least get to the airport from whatever hotel I'm in. Let's just say in came in really handy once before when I was billed at a hotel in luton.

Robert Thorne said...

It goes without saying that you need to at least know how to get to the local airport wherever you're spending a vacation. If I didn't do that, I might still be stuck in my usual broadbeach holiday apartments.
