Changing EU, USD, AUD money as well as currencies of other countries can be very easy around Philippines. The ideal rates are offered at smaller money changers inside shopping malls such as Robinsons, Greenbelt, and so on. The worst exchange rates are offered at hotels, banks, and airports.
Manila's 3 line elevated railways such as LRT/ MRT are inexpensive at P12 up to P15 per trip. However, they do not head out everywhere. There is an indirect trip from Taft and EDSA areas and an excellent means of avoiding a taxi blocked in a slow traffic.
