Not so sure about SGD-AUS$ exchange rate, so can't help you there. But for your Manila stay, stick to mainstream places and you should be fine. Restaurants serve filtered water, or you can always ask for bottled ones. If you're feeling adventurous, street food is generally ok to eat but choose good, clean places.
Currency used is Philippine Peso. You'll have to get your Australian dollars changed to pesos where the exchange rate is about 44 PHP to 1 AUD.
Is your Manila trip for leisure? I don't suggest driving in Manila if you're a foreigner. about 8 years ago
Hi Les,near the airport there are transit hotel which cost your about SGD60 for 6 hours.Now $ 1 AUD-SGD $1.25,there are a few money changer at the airport.If you are adventures,you can catch MRT which is the train to city centre which takes 30-40mins.Singaporevis safe & clean so you will not have any problem there.
Never been to Manila before but food is not a problem.Don't forget to buy the dried mangoes,that is a MUST when you visit Philippines ;)
Enjoy your trip. about 8 years ago
