The simplest way to get around is by hopping on a tricycle or multicab (small jeepney). Taxi is also available for a comfortable trip.
Always ask for taxi meter if you opt to pay by meter. Currently, flagdown rate is at PhP40.00 and PhP3.50 per succeeding 300 meters (only taxi units with receipt-issuing meters are allowed to charge the new rates; otherwise, flagdown rate is at PhP30.00 and PhP2.50 per succeeding 200 meters).. Drivers however may bargain if they notice that you are a tourist, hence the cost of the trip may double in price. However, you have the option not to agree and may report such to local authorities. If you know the name of the building, establishment, area or street you wish you reach, this is still the fastest way to get to your destination.
If you opt for more adventure, then do as the locals and catch a colorful jeepney. Simply ask around for which route to take. They are available 24 hours and cover most of the nooks and crannies of the city. This is the cheapest option for getting around for as low as PhP7.50.
