I am travelling from Kuala Lumpur Malaysia to Philippines.
I want to go to Manila, I am not sure if I should take Air asia flight to Clark and then take a bus to Manila or
take a flight with cebu pacific and land in manila, which is cheaper (cost saving)and convenient?
Please advise as I plan to travel 4 days 3 nights there in mid December 2012.

1Just check on both websites to see who has cheapest flights, the most convenient would be the Cebu Pacific flight into Manla, but even if you fly into Clark its only a few hours bus ride into Manila..

2Bear in mind that Cebu Pacific has a reputation for cancelling flights, so if your timing is really tight then Air Asia would be a better plan.
It also depends on which part of Metro Manila you want: the journey through the traffic from NAIA to Quezon City can often take longer than the bus from Angeles.

3you can also use www.airphilexpress.com and www.zeatair.com.ph to fly from KL to Manila.
so that is a total of 4 low cost airlines now flying from KL to Clark or manila.
Just look for the one with the best fare.
www.airasia.com 2 x times a day to Clark.
www.cebupacificair.com 2 x times a day to Manila.
www.airphilexpress.com to Manila
www.zeatair.com.ph to Manila.

7Factor in the cost of getting from and back to Clark - $60-$80 each way by taxi to Manila, but only $6-$12 by bus. The busses are not straighforward since the cheap one goes from Angeles not the airport, all up, 2 hours each way if you're lucky... personally I'd take the less hassle option and fly to Manila unless you particularly want to sample the recreational delights of Angeles..
Clark Airport is fine (way better than MNL NAIA-1) but the transport to and from Manila is neither straightforward or convenient. If you decide to bus it to Clark, go for 450 PHP option Philtranco Pasay.
