taxi from manila airport to makati

I'm arriving in Manila for a short stay and I've been hearing many horror stories about how taxi guys rip you off or take you off the beaten path and then rob you...how likely is that if I take the taxi off of the que and what can I do to prevent this? Also is their a money exchange in the airport arrival after clearing immigration?

Yes there is a money exchange after you clear immigration. Use the official taxi stand ignore others who may approach you. You should be fine.

Jeepnies are cheap- but not air conditioned and you need to know where they are going, Also they tend to be very crowded- watch your valuables on those ( I advise against using them). Taxis should be fine just insist that they use the meter.
