Another new year has come and a new set of travel plans I’m making, so yes, I’m eyeing this year’s long weekends and vacation breaks while constantly saving for these anticipated travel plans for 2019. Maybe, you and I have the same plans in mind?
Cherry blossoms. The bright vermilion torii gates. Soba ramen.
All these and more that will surely make me scream with happiness. Japan, I’m coming for you this Year of the
Taking advantage of visa-free travel.
Since hearing the news that Taiwan’s visa-free until July
of this year (here in the PH), my sister and I both can’t help but plan to pack
up our bags and get ready to see the National Palace Museum, Taroko National
Park, Taipei 101 and the other amazing spots in this country.
For the love of japchae and kimchi.
Not a fan of KPop, but I find Korea as a very interesting
country. I think its culture and history
are something that entice tourists to go and experience this old yet modern
country with underrated natural attractions.
The mere mention of Seoul is enough to tickle our
bones! This remarkable city filled with
hundreds and hundreds of restaurants, shopping areas and mind-blowing
attractions is on every Filipinos’
travel bucket list. I’m pretty sure I’ll
have countless selfies there, especially when I put on a gatekeeper costume at
Gyeongbokgung Palace and when I’m taking a peek at Lotte Mart.
Going local, of course!
With our seven thousand plus islands, there’s no shortage
of beaches, coves, mountains, waterfalls and other natural formations that will
always blew us away. Haven’t tried
swimming with whale sharks in Oslob and this year, I’m giving it a serious
thought. I’m also planning to revisit
one of my favourite provinces in Luzon, La Union and do what I always do there:
sit on the beach while drinking a bottle of iced cold beer, watch the surfers
and just worship the sun.
How about you? I’m
sure you already have a list of travel plans for 2019. Better to plan ahead, save and enjoy your
chosen destination. Remember, travelling
is wonderful in so many ways.
