Manila: One-stop, Non-stop Entertainment

 

johnny jet manilaThank you to Johnny Jet for publishing our article, One-stop, non-stop entertainment in Manila, the Philippines.

We enjoyed our time in the Philippines this summer and look forward to sharing several articles with you about all the amazing places and activities we saw. Our hearts go out to the people of the Philippines after the recent typhoon.

During the last fifteen months, my husband George and I have been traveling independently all over Asia. We knew we needed to return to Los Angeles for a family event in October so after being away since July 2012, we began to make our way back across the Pacific. Our last stop in Asia was Manila—capital of the Philippines—but we had a few issues along the way.

Remington Hotel, ResortsWorld

Our flight into Manila, on Air Asia affiliate Zest Air, was cancelled due to safety infractions. Passengers were therefore redirected on a two-hour Cebu Pacific flight to Manila from Kuala Lumpur. We arrived fatigued and a day behind schedule but fortunately our accommodations at the Remington Hotel were located within a few minutes of Manila’s airport. In fact, the Remington offers free transport from terminals one, two and three. Since we were flying to Bohol the following day, the hotel was an ideal location to spend the night.

Once at the hotel, we checked into the stylish and modern room meticulously maintained at a crisp 20 degrees Celsius (~70 Fahrenheit). The Remington Hotel is part of Resorts World Newport City Mall, home to an impressive collection of international cuisine and shops.
