First , those who prefer to explore other Asian places like Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia, Macau, and Hong Kong because for them, they feel they get their money’s worth and seem convenient for them to do so, logisticaly speaking. They were even saying, “ganun din naman ang gastos” if we travel locally, so we might as well spend our "moolah" somewhere else outside of the country, “mas feeling sikat pa kasi vacation abroad”. :-)
And you know the second type of Pinoy traveler: Like me!
I’ve been asked many times (by foreigner friends and pinoys alike) why I love spending my hard-earned dollar and vacation time in the Philippines instead of other places in the US, Asia and even perhaps Europe.
...and I give them the same answer year-in and year-out.
I am seriously committed to discovering the beauty and hidden gems of the Philippines first before anywhere else. I am proud to put local explorations first before any foreign travels.
Ikaw , which type of Pinoy traveler are you?
