Traveling is among the top entry in almost anybody’s bucket list. But if you’re a student, you would probably think that this is not very achievable, so you’d rather brush it off for the meantime, and put it as a goal for when you start working. However, there actually are ways to travel as a student, so you can start ticking off that must-visit list and have that summer adventure you always wanted.
The beach season is just around the corner and for sure, you are already planning your getaway. It may be a quick trip to La Union or a ride down south to Batangas. You may even be thinking of the picturesque summer in Boracay. Besides where to go, what you should also be asking is: what are the travel packing tips and tricks you should know?
Why? Because a trip won’t feel like a vacation if you find yourself lugging around a heavy bag. Over-packing will definitely bring stress and may even dampen your much-awaited summer trip. One good way to avoid over-packing is to pack using the KonMari way.
Visit trekking sites, magnificent waterfalls, and secluded beaches on your backpacking adventure in the Philippines. There are more than 7,000 islands in the country, and about 2,000 are habitable that you can visit. You can climb mountains in the Cordillera region or explore the rich marine diversity in Aklan. You may also learn about the country's colonial era by traversing the UNESCO Heritage site in the Ilocandia or visit Spanish period Catholic churches.
Filipinos are known for many things, including our passion for religion and love for traveling. With the Holy Week vacation coming up this April, going on a break from work for “Visita Iglesia” and other religious activities while having enough time for rest and relaxation sounds like a good idea. If you’re already itching to get all this done by March, this special list could help you do just that during the long weekend.
