Maligayang pagdating sa Pilipinas! Welcome to the Philippines!
Transportation from the Airport to the Hotel If you requested a transfer from airport to hotel upon arrival, the Manila Secretariat has already made arrangements for your comfortable transport. Upon exiting the baggage claim and customs, proceed to the hotel desk and representatives will direct you to transportation that will take you to the Dusit Thani Hotel. If you have not made transport arrangements, you can take accredited and metered airport taxis (Yellow). These are available upon exit from the airport. Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) has three terminals, which are not interconnected. Terminal 1 houses foreign airlines while Terminal 2 and 3 house local airlines, including Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific Air. Your arrival terminal will be the same as your departure terminal. NAIA is approximately 8 kilometers from the Dusit Thani Hotel. Depending on the time of arrival, some delays may be caused by city traffic. Approximate travel time to the hotel is 30 minutes to an hour if traveling at rush hours.
If you requested roundtrip transfers, transportation has been arranged for your departure from Manila. Please allow for at least an hour and a half travel time from your hotel to the airport. Passengers should be at the airport at least two hours before their flight schedule because of security checks and queues. Transportation in and Around Manila Taxi Metered taxis are the easiest and most convenient form of transportation. They are available all over the metro. You can take one directly from the hotel entrance. Flagdown rate is PhP 40 ($1), PhP 3.50 per additional kilometer. Ensure that the taxi-‐ meter is on and that your personal belongings are secure. It is best to sit in the back of the cab and keep your doors locked while in transit. Only cash is accepted. Metro Rail Transit (MRT) The Dusit Thani Hotel is located 0.25 km away from the Metro Rail Transit (MRT), which traverses EDSA, a major thoroughfare in the city. You can purchase single-‐use tickets to your destination at the station. There are also connections to other rail systems, the Light Rail Transit 1 and Light Rail Transit 2 (LRT-‐ 1 and LRT-‐2) at the MRT stations Taft Avenue and Cubao, respectively. Fares range from 10-‐14 Pesos. This is an option to bypass traffic on EDSA, but it can get crowded at rush hours. There is a women’s car for female passengers. -‐ The MRT route can be accessed here: http://dotcmrt3.weebly.com/stations.html -‐ LRT 1 and 2: http://www.lrta.gov.ph/route_map.htm Bus, Jeepney and Tricycle Other forms of transportation in Manila include buses along major roads, jeepneys, and tricycles. Fares for jeeps and buses start at 8 Pesos, and other fares depend on your final destination. Currency The official currency is the Philippine Peso. Exchange rate is about PhP 40 to USD$1. There are money changers at the airport immediately after exiting baggage claim and customs. There are also major banks within shopping malls, with the closest being SM Makati, Glorietta and Greenbelt. Depending on your bank policies, you can also withdraw directly from ATMs accepting major card types (VISA, Mastercard). As of January 30, 2013, these are the current exchange rates: 1 US Dollar = 40.6 Philippine Pesos (PHP) 1 Canadian Dollar = 40.52 PHP 1 Thai Baht = 1.36 PHP 1 Malaysian Ringgit = 13.21 PHP 1 Chinese Yuan = 6.53 PHP 1 Nigerian Naira = 0.26 PHP Communication Cellular phone chips (“sim cards”) and top-‐up credit are sold cheaply, less than PhP 100, in many convenience stores. Major carriers include Smart, Globe, and Sun, which also have 3G access for smartphones. Internet is available in the hotel for free if you are booked at the hotel. The country code is 63 and the area code in Metro Manila is 02.
Electrical Outlets Outlets in Philippines generally accept 2 types of plugs: Flat blade plug Two round pins Item 3 meals: Breakfast Lunch Dinner Incidentals
Voltage is usually at 220 V. You may need an adapter or voltage converter if you have different plugs or equipment voltage. Accommodation and Venue Hotel guests are booked at the Dusit Thani Hotel, which is in Makati City. The conference venue is right beside a sprawling shopping complex; a short walk from the hotel entrance closest to Ballroom B, one has convenient access to a large grocery, department store, hardware, and Filipiniana shop for native souvenirs Due to the number of participants, the meeting room will be moved to Ballroom B, Ground Floor, of the Dusit Thani Hotel instead of the Meeting Rooms on the 2nd Floor. Breakfast is included in your hotel stay, as well as lunch and snacks. Reimbursements and Daily Subsistence Allowance (DSA) As per the per diem rates from IDRC, the maximum for the Philippines is 226 CAD/day for all expenses including hotel accomodation, meals, and incidentals. For meals provided as part of the hotel accommodation, or conference meetings, the cost of these are deducted from the DSA provision.

About the Philippines
Weather and Clothing The Philippines is a country with a tropical monsoon climate. Expect hot or humid temperatures (an average of 26-‐27 degrees Celsius) and the possibility of rainy days. The venue is air-‐ conditioned for your comfort. Outside the venue, pack light clothes and a small foldable umbrella – useful in the heat and in the rain – or a light rain jacket. Safety Like many other urban cities, safety in Manila involves a lot of common sense. Avoid wearing expensive or showy clothing or jewelry and keep your valuables in safe areas (e.g. leave your passport, laptop at the hotel). If you are traveling after the conference, do share your travel plans with the Secretariat. The emergency number is 117 for Police. Travel tip: Carry around a calling card of hotel, along with contacts of Manila Secretariat found at the end of this document.
Food With (some) bias, Filipino food is really tasty. Some specialties of the country include lechon (roasted suckling pig), a variety of fresh seafoods and fruits—Philippine mangoes are famous for their sweetness. There are also international cuisines available. Vegan/Vegetarian options may be limited in small restaurants. CCAR participants will be taken to M Café and Café Juanita, both local restaurants known for inventive takes on Filipino cuisine. There are some weekend night food markets like Mercato at Fort Bonifacio (http://www.midnightmercato.com/ Open Friday and Saturday from 10:00pm to 3:00am, on Sunday 7am to 2pm) or Cucina Andare (https://www.facebook.com/CucinaAndare/ Open Friday, Saturday & Sunday, 4pm-‐3am) that have street food and local, fresh cooking. Sights and Shopping The Philippines has over 7,000 islands with a wide variety of activities for travel and tourism. Within the historic City of Manila are the walled city of Intramuros, the Manila Cathedral, and Rizal Park (http://www.lonelyplanet.com/philippines/manila/sights). Corregidor Island and Tagaytay with Taal Volcano and Lake are accessible for day trips. You may ask the Secretariat or Hotel staff for more information. The Dusit Thani Hotel is in the Makati Central Business District, and there are many options for shopping and eating. The closest malls are Glorietta, SM Makati, and Greenbelt. Bargain shoppers usually head for Greenhills Shopping Center, which is in San Juan City. Language The official language is Tagalog (Filipino). English is spoken very widely. Culture As the tourism slogan says, “It’s more fun in the Philippines!” Filipinos are known for their generous, happy and hardworking spirit. We hope you have a safe, productive, and most of all fun stay in the country.
