Driving in the City
Driving conditions in Manila are notoriously bad, with heavy congestion and smog. Drivers in the Philippines are frequently aggressive and often disregard traffic regulations, especially regarding lane discipline, one-way streets and giving way to other drivers. They use their horns all the time.

Parking is as much of a scramble as driving is and visitors are advised to park at their hotels, although facilities are available at large shopping malls and major commercial districts, such as Makati and Ortigas. In order to reduce pollution, a congestion scheme banning cars from the capital is in effect 0700-1900 – those with number plates ending in 1 or 2 on Mondays, 3 or 4 on Tuesdays and so on, with 9 or 0 banned on Fridays.

Driving is not recommended for visitors, as the risks are too high for drivers not experienced with the road conditions in Manila. Manila Stay offers an affordable alternative with half day and full day car hire with private driver options.. as well as our reliable airport pick up service.
