Voice of Travelers to Manila

Airfare ticket to Manila from Beijing

As I was invited to conference to Manila last year, I started looking for a cheap flight ticket. I found two options, a ticket for a direct flight from Beijing to Manila, and a ticket with transit at Kuala Lumpur airport. The ticket through Kuala Lumpur to Manila was cheaper but as I was in a hurry to get to Manila, I went for the more expensive ticket to Manila on a direct flight. This ticket was issued through a ticket portal and it was for Cebu Pacific airlines who provided great service on both flight to Manila and back. I found Manila to be a charming city and I am thinking to look for a return ticket to Manila for next summer with my family.

Cheap airfare ticket to Manila

I found a very good return ticket deal with a hotel and transportation included through a ticket discount server. Not knowing much about Manila, I decided to give it a try and I purchased the ticket online. My journey started in Hong Kong on a direct flight to Manila with Cebu Pacific Airlines. The ticket was issued for Manila international airport, but I eventually ended spending most of my days in a resort near Manila, just taking it easy on the beaches. Manila is a beautiful city. I had a change to discover Manila on an optional trip purchase through the resort, and I loved it.
