How to Get ThereA taxi will take you directly to Resorts World Manila. Resorts World provides shuttles that ferry passengers with different schedules and various pick-up points in all cities of Metro Manila, Antipolo City, Cavite , Laguna, and Rizal.
Another option is to take the NAIA Loop Shuttle public commuter bus that travels from MRT3 Taft Station Terminal to NAIA 3 passing by Resorts World Manila. Trips start from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. at one hour intervals. Fare is ₱20 ($0.44).
If you take the Metro Railway Transit (MRT3) Blue Line, stop at Taft Avenue Station and go down to Saver’s Square, then turn left at the passageway beside McDonald’s. Take the NAIA 3 Loop shuttle just outside.
SafetyIf you want to play at the casino and you're planning to bring a large sum of money, refrain from taking the metro railway. The Resorts World shuttle or taxi would be your best option but be sure to get off if the taxi driver shows any unusual movements. Staying at the hotels within the resort would be a good idea if your main itinerary is the casino.
