Here, you check out the different sites and attractions south of Manila, which will keep you entertained during a long layover or while waiting for a better-timed flight.
Fortunately, there are many places near the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) that you could visit to keep you engaged while you are grounded.
This government-owned amusement and gaming center is located just a few minutes from NAIA's Terminal 1 in Parañaque City.
