Avoid traveling during peak hours in Makati

One of the best ways to avoid traveling during peak hours in Makati is to avoid using public transportation. The city’s traffic is notoriously bad between the hours of 7am and 10pm on weekdays. During these times, it can take up to an hour to get to your destination, especially on EDSA. Avoid traveling during these times and plan your trip with a lot of flexibility.

Also, if you’re traveling from abroad, travel insurance is a must. The customs officials may require it, so bring a copy of your policy. Makati is the financial hub of the Philippines and is home to the country’s largest concentration of multinational corporations. Although crime is moderate in Makati, you need to be aware of your surroundings at all times and use caution when stepping into unfamiliar areas. While public transportation may be the fastest option, you should also watch out for pickpockets and use licensed taxi services to get around. A taxi should also have a meter so that you can see how much the cab costs.

Getting to Makati by taxi/private ride sharing

Getting to Makati by taxi or private ride sharing can be a hassle-free way to travel around the city. While city buses have set routes, taxis can pick you up and drop you off anywhere. The duration of the trip also depends on the skill of the driver. Experienced drivers have knowledge of the city’s backstreets and shortcuts.

Taxis and private ride sharing services are inexpensive in the Philippines. When traveling from the airport, it is a good idea to book a private transfer. You can pay by cash or credit card, but it’s not always the cheapest option. The driver will meet you in the arrivals area or wherever you specified in your booking. A private transfer will cost a set price, and can carry up to three people.
