Makati in Manila is fine anytime ,although I only lived there for a year I’m sure bad things happen. Also there’s a range of buses/coaches from the airport to downtown which will accommodate as much luggage as a taxi, the other option is grab app like you mentioned.
Is this just for the flight or for hotels also???
I'm not certain why this conversations is circling. Get travel insurance and use it if required. Use a decent enough company and they will do all the booking for you. You would have to pay an excess.
Indeed. And my point is that the first 2 airlines in this itinerary are 2 of the airlines most likely to be disrupted. And my suggestion is to stretch the durations to make it easier to deal with disruptions.
