Glimpse of NAIA 1

Few days before our trip, I’ve read and watched news about the Immigration Officers issue at NAIA and they advised to be at the airport 5 hours before the flight. So we left early on the day of our flight, sa sobrang excited 6 hours before the flight nasa NAIA 1 na kami. 

Waah! The place was packed with people and no more vacant seats. I’m not sure if this is the usual scenario or dahil baka magHoly week na rin, so ang daming umaalis. There is free wifi but unfortunately, 60 minutes lang ang free connection. 

The Thai Airways counter opened 3 hours before the flight, ang tagal ng paghihintay sa lobby. Good thing that my husband took advantage the web check-in so we have a separate lane for that. 

I was expecting a long line for the Immigration but the staff informed us to go to the special lane since we have a kid in tow. Yehey, nakaligtas kami sa mahabang pila

NAIA 1 was considered as one of the worst airports in the world but now I can say that NAIA 1 improved a lot in terms of service, facilities and amenities. Malayo na siya sa dati ko na nakita na airport. (10 years ago) Sharing with you some photos.

I guess, NAIA 1 is better compared to other NAIA terminals. What do you think?

When we went back from Norway, I bought chocolates at Duty Free Shop. I like their payment option because I can choose the currency that I like. Of course, I chose PHP because I have pesos but some customers are paying USD. Fast din ang service nila, just choose the package of chocolates that you like, pay at the counter and get your shopping bag.
