Where to stay for a Corregidor trip?

by anadyr Online Now Mar 26, 2013 at 9:01 AM

I will be visiting the Philippines in the Fall (2 days in Manila, a few days in Palawan). One of my "must do" things that I want to do is visit Corregidor on the tour boat. Additionally, I need to visit a tailor and get some clothes altered. Therefore, my part of the city would I want to stay at that is near the Manila port and a shopping center or area and won't be challenged by traffic. Can anyone recommend a men's tailor?

    I suggest you stay in Ermiita area as there are many types of accommodation there and Robinsons Mall. It is also not too far from the south Harbor, but i am not too sure where the boats to Corregidor leave from but when you book a tour they usually pick you up from the hotel. Palawan deserves more time. I have lived there for 18 years so you can check my pages out to see all the magnificent things to do there.

    David, Thank you, I've only got 2 weeks or so, and I have to crunch in Taiwan, The Philippines, and Thailand. I've talked to a travel agent in Puerto Princessa and gotten some ideas about trips (Underground River, etc)

    The ferry to Corregidor leaves at Harbor Center which is at the back/side of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP). For reference, CCP Complex is along Roxas Boulevard/Manila Bay and a stone's throw from Ermita-Malate districts. I think (and I may be wrong), tours to Corregidor only cover the ferry and island tours. Hence you need to find your own way to Harbor Center at least 30 minutes before your scheduled trip.
