Plan your trip

Visiting Manila for the first time? The Plan Your Trip page on the SiGMA website is designed to help make your stay a breeze. From recommendations to travel tips, we’ve done the research so you don’t have to!

Manila is known for its great city life, and with so many of our networking events taking place here, the city should be your first port of call when it comes to accommodation. Our official partner hotels include the Conrad Hotel, the Okada Manila, Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila, The Heritage Manila, Lanson Place, Mall of Asia Manila, Solaire Resort and Casino, Networld Hotel Spa and Casino, Kingsford Hotel Manila and Hop Inn.

Ensure your passport is valid, and be sure to check whether you require a visa to enter the country by checking out the Visa Information section on our website.

It is essential to have an eTravel Card with you at the border. Register an eTravel Card within 72 hours (about 3 days) before departure. Get your eTravel Card here: https://etravel.gov.ph/authentication

Tips and Tricks 

The Philippine Peso is the official currency, with credit cards widely accepted. Stay updated on COVID-19 travel guidelines, as they may change. 

The Philippines has 3 telecom service providers: Smart Communications, Globe Telecom and DITO. If you want to stay connected to the internet during your trip, we recommend Big Sky Travel Wi-Fi. You can through their website at https://bigskynation.com. Don’t forget your power adapter: Type A, B, and C plugs are used in The Philippines. 

Take note of emergency numbers, most importantly: 911 for police and fire, and 112 for medical emergencies.
