How far away is this bay from where the cruise ships port. Will there be taxis at the port to take us around town. Can we rent a car to drive ourselves around.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
What you can do is contact a tour guide who pick you up at the port and drive you around where ever you want to go.
This tour guide who is (Dutch)foreigner himself & offer his self as tour guide and driver with his Van. He also tour you around for barhopping etc.
look for libertytours on the net
The cruise ships dock at manila bay. The best would be to join a tour and rent a car with driver from known companies such as Avis or Hertz, it is possible to see the famous sunset from your cruise vessel.
The bay views are only 5 mins by car from the Port
Be ready however to encounter horrendous traffic
I do not recommend you driving yourself. Taxis are difficult. There are MANY dishonest drivers. I suggest hiring a car and driver $30 USD a day will get you all about Manila. A tour group is a good idea - safety in numbers
