Some may understandably view Manila as merely a stepping stone to more rural destinations the Philippines is famed for. However, those who are privy to the city’s secrets will readily attest to an array of hidden sanctuaries offering respite from the hustle and bustle of the region’s great metropolises.

After closing its borders to international travellers for nearly two years, the Philippines currently welcomes international arrivals. This means Saudi residents can now visit the Philippines’ capital city of Manila for both leisure and other purposes. Let’s familiarize ourselves with the latest travel guidelines and restrictions on travelling from Riyadh to Manila.
