Specifically, vehicles whose license plates ends with a 1 or 2 are banned on Mondays, 3 or 4 on Tuesdays, 5 or 6 on Wednesdays, 7 or 8 on Thursdays, and 9 or 0 on Fridays.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Manila?

This is because it isn’t uncommon to see small lanes and one-way roads, particularly in the more historic sections of the city. On such streets, larger cars may struggle to fit at times, so to be safe, go with a smaller car. Additionally, parking spaces are often small, especially in densely populated areas.

Where are the best places to park in Manila?

Private parking garages and lots are convenient great options for drivers who are sticking to the busier parts of town.

In quieter quarters such as residential areas, streetside parking is a more popular and typical option. Drivers should note, though, that many businesses will have private parking lots and garages for their customers to use.
